Life-saving rules aspire to raise awareness and ensure safe practices for preventing life-threatening injuries. The life-saving rules apply to all workers and partners involved with Wärtsilä's operations or visiting its premises.


Namely, Wärtsilä has concluded on ten rules, which are the following:

  1. Work with a valid work permit / JSA when needed;
  2. Verify isolation when working on energized systems;
  3. Always use equipment that is fit to its intended purpose;
  4. Ensure safe conditions before entering a confined space;
  5. Protect yourself against a fall when working at height;
  6. Obtain authorization before overriding or disabling safety critical equipment;
  7. Stay out from under suspended load;
  8. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment;
  9. Wear your seat belt;
  10. Comply with road safety rules.

We have Zero tolerance regarding breaches of Life-Saving Rules, and each Wärtsilä local company has a disciplinary procedure in place to address safety violations

Wärtsilä stated.

In addition, Wärtsilä has created a test to see if people can choose the right life-saving rule to be applied in different situations.
