Occupational Health and Safety

By means of preventative occupational safety measures and good working conditions we seek to avert dangers to individuals and to promote and preserve the health of our employees. Our employees’ safety is a central requirement of our corporate activities. Occupational safety, however, is also part of the personal responsibility of each individual employee. Risks are to be avoided by means of foresighted, careful and safety-conscious behavior. Any shortcomings in our occupational safety measures are to be reported to the responsible executive immediately.

Environmental Protection

We are committed to the principles of sustainable management and to environmental protection as a corporate value. We will support appropriate measures in dealing with the impact our operations have on the environment.
