KPIs - Absences - Incidents - Workplace injuries

Worksite incidents 0

In 2020, there were no serious worksite accidents or serious incidents. We put safety high on our agenda and work proactively to avoid worksite incidents.

Near misses 4

In 2020, 4 near misses were reported.Near misses can involve anything from minor crushing injuries, sprains and more, as well as near misses during timber and forklift handling. These four near misses were identified as incidents of a milder nature, such as a blow to the finger or a wrist sprain. Medical care or sick leave has not been necessary.

Heavy lifting -90%

2020 reflects investments in workplace health and safety and in streamlining using vacuum lifts. As a result of this investment, we have eliminated more than 90 percent of the heavy lifting needed for wood panels. However, we negatively view the fact that sheet material still entails heavy lifting. These issues will be rectified by 2024.

Sick leaves <2%

020 has no connection to long-term sick leave. Because Covid-19 caused extensive absences, sick leave has not been reviewed down to a detailed level. Sick leave <2 percent based on absence statistics without considering Covid-19.
