Health management and occupational safety

Health Management and Occupational Safety

In accordance with our principles of social responsibility, the health of all our employees is of utmost importance. For this reason we operate a company-wide, BS OHSAS 18001-certified health management system.

Taking into account demographic developments, we implemented preventive measures for maintaining health including, for example, workplace ergonomics, lifting equipment, working time systems and work organization measures.

Occupational safety is also very important to us. We systematically record and analyse all accidents and potential risks. From this we derive corrective and preventive measures to ensure that accidents are not repeated.

We promote safety awareness amongst our employees and have “zero tolerance” with respect to critical conditions or unsafe practices.

Occupational safety in all areas

The guiding principles of our occupational safety, which originate from the German parent company, are applicable in all units worldwide and therefore in all departments.

All our sites around the world operate an occupational safety management system in accordance with BS OHSAS 18001.
