Our goal: Zero harm to people

We aspire to the highest standards for people and will continue to raise these standards in line with our goal of zero harm.

Making progress

We are rolling out health and well-being programs to all employees. In 2020, we put extra focus on the psychological health of employees as remote work increased due to the Covid-19 pandemic. At Sandvik Coromant, all managers were offered safety training and we became more proactive in investigating hazards. At the Svedala site, a robot will replace 80 percent of the manual work involved in grinding, reducing the risk of back problems, joint and muscle pain and “white finger syndrome”. The Tampere site in Finland invested in a so called exoskeleton. It allows for limb movements with increased strength and endurance and aims to provide back support.
