Employee well-being

We believe that the health and well-being of our employees form an important part of their working ability. To ensure this, Orthex offers its employees high-quality, employer-provided occupational health care. 

We also promote an early support model that aims to prevent and detect early any negative developments regarding employee health, safety, and well-being. The model also enables managers to provide adequate and timely support to employees and to promote dialogue as part of the company culture. We encourage our employees to exercise in their free time by providing subsidized options for it. 

Professional development is important to Orthex, and we provide the opportunity to participate in different kind of courses and seminars when necessary. New employees have a thorough introduction to the company and their roles.

Orthex promotes a zero-accident vision and culture, and our operations are ISO 45001 certified for occupational health and safety (OHS). We want to ensure that all our employees have a safe workplace every day. Health and safety issues are particularly important in our factories where all possible safety measures are taken so that production flows well and our employees can concentrate on their work. Our focus is on preventing safety incidents, which is why we encourage our employees to report any near-misses, unsafe practices, or other safety observations. All reports are carefully analysed, and actions are carried out to prevent similar situations from re-occurring in the future. To ensure the safe use of chemicals, we provide our employees with bulletins that define the hazard level of the chemical and include relevant instructions for use and protective gear.

Orthex Code of Conduct applies to all our employees and the management. The Code of Conduct defines the key principles for how we engage in business, treat each other, and safeguard Orthex’s assets. Our employees are encouraged to report any breaches of the Code of Conduct to their supervisors or through Orthex’s whistleblowing channel.
