Health and safety
Safety is a top priority and we have a zero accident vision. We also strive to create a healthy work environment to prevent work related ill-health. Höganäs deploys a preventive and systematic approach to health and safety. The technical and physical aspects of managing risks in our operations are paired with a zero accident culture where behavioural change is key to success.
