Safety first!

The Plattling site has been working for many years to improve occupational safety. The safety campaign involving the implementation of safety standards, resulted in measures being taken that go beyond statutory requirements. They include safety walks by managers, targeted safety discussions and the documentation of safety observations by all staff. The aim is to raise the employees' awareness of unsafe conditions and activities. An extensive exchange of experience with other UPM mills on accidents and high-risk incidents as well as cross-site occupational safety audits make the knowledge and findings of others available to us to eliminate potential risks from the outset.



In keeping with the concept of circular economy, the majority of production waste is recycled locally. Hazardous wastes are forwarded exclusively to specialised waste management companies to be disposed of in accordance with legal requirements.
