Health and Safety

We work safely or do not work at all. 

Work safety is not only one of our top priorities – it is our core value. UPB's high safety standards are built to protect our employees, clients, partners, factory and construction site visitors, as well as the environment and society.

Safety Above All

Creating a secure workplace not only enhances the well-being, motivation, and productivity of our employees but also nurtures a responsive and open internal culture within our team.

We believe in transparent communication and cooperation throughout the entire supply chain. By collaborating with suppliers and contractors, we enhance processes and daily operations, prioritizing safety and fostering sustainable partnerships.
