Safety Day 2021 - Every Step Matters

Wärtsilä’s seventh annual Safety Day takes place on October 6th, 2021. This year the theme is Every Step Matters to prevent slips, trips and falls. The objective of the 2021 Safety Day is to increase awareness of the slip, trip and fall risks and their potential consequences, to promote necessary safety measures needed when walking around and working at heights and to strengthen our safety culture and celebrate the success in safety.
