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 which will be launched across the Harvia Group in 2023.
For reporting potential misconduct, Harvia has a whistleblowing channel available for all stakeholders on Harvia Group’s website. In 2022, two reports were made through the whistleblowing channel. The reports were 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. In 2022, occupational safety reporting was expanded to cover the whole Group.
In 2022, Harvia strengthened its quality management and the company is building a Group-level model for quality, health, safety, and environment (QHSE) management that combines quality and sustainability and focuses on continuous improvement.
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. A concrete example of this is the separation of the material stocks from the production hall at the Muurame factory, which reduces the visits of forklift trucks in the area and significantly improves the safety of the personnel.
