Production employees’ tasks at the pharmaceutical plants

Pharmaceutical production work includes manufacturing and packaging medicines in clean rooms with different classifications, monitoring production lines, controlling processes, using protective equipment in connection with pharmaceutical production, creating and managing documents, managing cleaning procedures and complying with instructions. The work requires special attention and care, as well as technical skills. Finnish language skills are a requirement for nearly all production jobs, as Finnish is our working language, and our instructions and guidelines are in Finnish. 
Depending on the department, we mainly work during the day or in two or three shifts. The five-shift model is also in use.
