Occupational Health & Safety

It is the responsibility of every company to maintain its employees’ productivity and to protect them from accidents and illness. At the same time, this helps companies avoid economic effects that arise when employees are absent due to accidents or illness.

We take on the responsibility of creating a working environment for our employees and partners in which they can work without accidents or illness. We don’t distinguish between our own employees, external employees, or visitors in this respect. We comply with all of the locally applicable legal stipulations regarding occupational safety and health protection. In many cases, our internal standards extend beyond these legal requirements.

The corporate department C-OHS (Corporate Occupational Health and Safety) oversees occupational safety and health protection in the Group using a management system. The individual sites are functionally managed in the form of a moderated network. In addition to a central, binding policy, minimum standards have been established across the Group with procedural instructions. These are implemented in detail at the sites.

Training and discussions help sensitize the employees to the topic of occupational safety at the same time. The participation of all employee levels and their representatives, as well as the utilization of their experience, are matters of course that are particularly important to us.

We make a targeted contribution to our employees’ preventive health care with a number of health promotion programs. This includes flu vaccinations, comprehensive preventive check-ups, and addiction prevention and treatment, as well as intensive training for the stomach and back muscles based on analyses.


Vision Zero

Our objective is zero work-related accidents, injuries, or illnesses. In order to come closer to this goal, we set an intermediate target for the fiscal year 2021/2022 in 2018 – a maximum LTIFR (Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate) of ≤1.0. On this basis, each site is developing individual strategies with the participation of managers and employee representatives. The strategies will be monitored regularly and adjusted as needed.


You can find more details and examples of our involvement in our non-financial report.


Accident frequency

LTIFR (Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate) refers to the frequency of accidents resulting in lost time of at least one shift per 1 million working hours.
