One of Peter’s first statement

Already a few months have passed at Neste and I have had the privilege to visit our sites. I am impressed how the safety culture is embedded in the daily life at Neste. Guidelines, trainings and visual reminders are important, but leading by example as an individual is even more so. Safety is a state of mind here and this is shared by our Board of Directors, all management levels and all employees and contractors. In the end, we all want to go home healthy after a safe working day! What do you think are the most important factors in making safety culture part of an organisation‘s DNA?
