Outlook for 2017

The ongoing development of occupational safety is a continuous process. Training measures are planned for volunteer occupational safety roles (safety officers, first responders and fire protection assistants with evacuation functions), while the Group-wide standards (e. g., instruction sessions, operating instructions, site inspections) for occupational safety will be actively expanded and implemented.

The craftsmen’s organization plans to sharpen its structures in cooperation with specialist roles at the company’s various locations and together with the external occupational safety specialists and company physicians. The tasks and projects for the next two years will mainly result from the effectiveness reviews evaluated in the second quarter of 2017.

At the end of 2016, a toxic materials management system was implemented, which will be prepared and completed in 2017 for use at the company’s locations.
