Our highly skilled employees are and remain the key to high-quality products and customer satisfaction. In pursuit of our responsibility towards our employees we have made occupational health and safety an important pillar within our management system.
We promote occupational health and safety in various ways:
- Intensive training of our employees and third-parties provides the basis for the safety-oriented culture within our company.Regular close controlling of all safety-relevant indicators regarding accidents and, especially, recording and evaluation of near accidents.
- All management programs must be geared to continuously minimizing workplace accidents and encumbrances.
The effectiveness of our occupational health and safety measures is verified in annual audits by independent certification societies in line with the British OHSAS 18001 standard and checked by internal auditors.
Besides occupational health and safety, an important demand we place on our management system is the promotion of our employees' health and well-being.
