Stop Work Authority
Wärtsilä employees and partners have the responsibility and authority to stop the work when identifying a hazard, which could put the safety of personnel, partners and/or public in general at stake.
The employee is required to immediately report the Stop Work case to its line manager/site manager and customer representative, and ensure that the case is registered in the relevant reporting system. Employees shall not resume work until all the hazards with unacceptable risks have been brought under control to an acceptable risk level.
Wärtsilä is committed to Stop Work authority by preventing any retaliation in response to exercising this authority.
