For safe and warm community

Harvia’s operations are based on values such as equality, diversity, and ‘welcoming’. Harvia always complies with laws and regulations and generally accepted best practices in all markets.

Harvia’s own operations are guided by the Harvia Code of Conduct. It defines Harvia’s approach to human rights and political activity, as well as the company’s rejection of corruption, bribery or the use of child and forced labor. The Code of Conduct is part of the orientation program for new employees. In 2022, Harvia prepared an e-learning program for the Code of Conduct. The program was piloted in 2023 and over half of the white-collar personnel at the headquarters in Muurame completed the program successfully. The training will be gradually expanded to cover other Harvia units.

The company trains its personnel continuously and develops its capabilities. In 2023, Harvia carried out training regarding, among others, occupational safety.

For reporting potential misconduct, Harvia has a whistleblowing channel available for all stakeholders on Harvia Group’s website. In 2023, one report was made through the whistleblowing channel and was handled according to Harvia’s process. Harvia’s channel allows full anonymity.

Harvia takes continuous measures to secure the health and wellbeing of its personnel. The company strives for zero accidents. Occupational accidents and close call events are reported to and handled by the Occupational Safety Commission. There were no serious occupational accidents in 2023.

When we collaborate and support each other, it results in wellbeing and long relationships with everyone from our employees to customers and partners. We look after the safety, equality and competence development of our people.

Two thirds of Harvia’s personnel work in production. Therefore, a great effort is put into work safety and related risk management. Monitoring, reporting, as well as annual risk analyses are a key part of Harvia’s occupational safety and help the company to identify and prevent risk situations. The company also improves occupational safety by developing production. Automation and new machinery increase safety by default, and when new machinery is being installed, the factory’s layout is evaluated and modified from the safety perspective. Training of the personnel to use the new machinery plays an important role and increases safety.
