Ensuring the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers, service providers and visitors is firmly enshrined in our corporate philosophy. Safe work procedures take priority over maximisation of profit. Health and safety is therefore a key component of our everyday working life.                        

Our goal is to continually improve and develop the technical, organisational and behavioural aspects of health and safety in the workplace and, if possible, completely prevent work-related accidents and health issues.

Each year specific targets are agreed with the production departments. This means that obligations and duties are defined for all levels of the hierarchy and their implementation is mandatory. Management set an example in respecting and complying with health and safety regulations and employees and external visitors alike are required to do the same. Employees receive comprehensive theoretical and practical training on safe behaviour.

The fact that our measures are clearly having an effect is reflected in our accident figures, which are below the industry average.
