SSAB´s safety management system fulfills the requirements of international standard OHSAS 18001.
Every year, hundreds of people from external companies work at SSAB, particularly in the areas of maintenance and repairs. Ensuring the safety of everyone in our facilities – employees, contractors or visitors – is our highest priority. Contractor companies are screened for strong safety practices, and partner companies work together with SSAB to ensure safety of anyone working at an SSAB facility. We also provide the contractors with safety training sessions and discussion forums, in order to increase their safety awareness.
