Occup­a­tio­nal health & safety

Both the pro­tec­tion and impro­ve­ment of health and safe­ty for all employees and the avoidance/minimisation of hazards and risks are top prio­ri­ties for us.

Both the pro­tec­tion and impro­ve­ment of health and safe­ty for all employees and the avoidance/minimisation of hazards and risks are top prio­ri­ties for us. We are, the­re­fo­re, plea­sed that our occup­a­tio­nal health and safe­ty orga­ni­sa­ti­on was audi­ted last year in accordance with OEKO-TEX® STeP and rated at the hig­hest level.

One important core ele­ment in the manage­ment of occup­a­tio­nal health and safe­ty is the Occup­a­tio­nal Safe­ty Com­mit­tee (OSC) mee­tings. The safe­ty offi­cer, the plant engi­neer, a mem­ber of the works coun­cil, the per­son­nel manage­ment func­tion and pro­duc­tion manage­ment (who are also repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of manage­ment) take part in the regu­lar mee­tings. Tech­ni­cal sup­port comes from the com­pa­ny phy­si­ci­an and an engi­nee­ring office for safe­ty tech­no­lo­gy and occup­a­tio­nal health and safe­ty. Tog­e­ther, pre­vious occup­a­tio­nal acci­dents are ana­ly­sed and mea­su­res to impro­ve occup­a­tio­nal safe­ty and health are dis­cus­sed. In addi­ti­on, the ISA regu­lar­ly issu­es noti­ces on key topics that we com­mu­ni­ca­te intern­al­ly. Our employees recei­ve safe­ty trai­ning at least once a year. Here, cur­rent topics or past acci­dents can always be dis­cus­sed in more detail.

Whe­ther it’s visu­al aids for the moni­tor or cus­to­mi­sed hea­ring pro­tec­tion – our exter­nal com­pa­ny phy­si­ci­an is on hand to offer advice and sup­port on many health issu­es. Every year, we also offer our staff the flu vaccination.
