Social sustainability at Weckman

We appreciate others

From the outset, the values of our family-run company have included taking care of our employees and treating everyone equally. Our personnel and individual employees are our main resource and the key to our success. In all our operations, we show appreciation to our staff.

We invest in the development of our employees’ skills. The understanding of our customers’ needs and business and the smooth and rapid functioning of the order-delivery chain are the cornerstones of our operations. Quality is everyone’s responsibility and it arises from seamless collaboration across the entire company.

We appreciate our personnel’s diversity, which is an integral part of our unique company culture. Taking care of and promoting occupational safety and well-being is a shared responsibility of the entire personnel and stakeholders, and good results are achieved with seamless collaboration between the company and its collaboration partners.

Occupational safety and well-being goals

Our goal is to create a safe and tranquil working environment where professionals and experts in various fields work together and where joint goals guide employees to build the company’s future while advancing in their careers. We work together to build a company that we can be proud of now and in the future.

Controlled operating processes as the basis for occupational safety

Weckman Steel Oy is committed to maintaining and continuously developing the safety of its machines and work procedures. Workplace surveys have been conducted for all our locations and occupational safety studies have been carried out for our machines, and on the basis of these results we systematically develop and improve occupational safety. In our day-to-day operations, safety matters are integrated into our processes.

Our occupational safety committee, occupational health service and pension insurance company work together to monitor and develop occupational health and safety and to develop safety matters on the level of targets in line with the principles of continuous improvement.
