Some areas and tasks have specific safety restrictions and/or requirements  and these can change from time to time – adhere to signs and regulations.

When we have construction areas these are fenced off and rules for access are posted locally. This usually includes at least helmet, reflective vest and safety shoes.

You can bring visitors to the facility for job-related purposes. Privately, employees can bring a small number of visitors if it can be done in a way that does not interfere with on-going activities. The visitors must be registered at the reception and be escorted by you during the visit. You have the responsibility that the safety rules are followed. You should only take visitors to areas where you are familiar with the local risks. Visitors younger than 15 years are only allowed in the office buildings.
