Start Digging Where You're Standing

In Sweden we have a saying that’s frequently used when discussing the startup of a project or change. Start digging where you’re standing. Before taking on large projects of change, start with yourself, the contacts you have in your network and your own team. Same goes for sustainable development goal number three, ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Those of you who are already familiar with NoroGard, knows that we’re very passionate about ensuring the health and safety of the operators. By providing a work environment free from dust, chemicals and safety hazards, we take our responsibility as a manufacturer and innovator.

NoroGard is also ensuring the health and safety of our own team. In order for us to be growing stronger, we need to look after ourselves. This is why all members of our organization are provided free company healthcare with frequent check-ups and tests. This as well as lifestyle coaching, prevention of mental health issues and contributions towards for example glasses, gym memberships, massage, etc. that could help ensuring healthy lives for our team members. We are also running ongoing efforts for our work environment at our facilities. These cover everything from location of tools and furniture, risk management, noise control, safety precautions, mental health, working position and posture, to everything else that’s linked to the performance and health of our team.

So, start digging where you’re standing! Have a think about what you’re doing today to ensure your own health and well-being, then think about how you’re contributing towards an improved health of your team members or employees. What else can you do to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages?
