Occupational health and safety

Our occupational health and safety management and development is guided by our ISO 45001 certified occupational health and safety system. We invest in health and safety training for employees and ensure that people working in risk-prone environments or jobs have the necessary qualifications. We encourage our employees and contractors to proactively report any health and safety risks in the workplace and make suggestions to improve the safety of working conditions and methods.

Diversity, equality, and inclusiveness

We appreciate diversity, and we aim to treat all our employees and applicants equally in all recruitment, hiring, training, and development.

We do not distinguish between gender or other non-professional attributes in employee compensation or benefits plans.

Prevention of corruption and bribery

Vaisala has a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of corruption. Our International Anti-Corruption Policy strictly forbids offering, giving, soliciting, arranging, demanding, or accepting bribes, whether directly or through third parties.
