Our strategy for safe workplaces:
Self-commitment to safety as part of the corporate culture
There are effective organisations with regard to employee protection with well-trained personnel for all positions relevant to safety in all VTU companies. In our customer projects, workplace evaluations and risk assessments are part of our project management. Customer-specific safety requirements are evaluated in consultation with our customers and all project participants are trained.
Identifying and understanding hazards and risks, raising safety awareness
A provable instruction is not sufficient for us. We continuously address safety at work in our internal communications in order to raise awareness among all employees of possible risks and safety-enhancing behaviour. Dangerous situations and near-accidents are reported and evaluated and the information made available to all employees.
Effective risk management & lessons learned to prevent accidents
Incidents relevant to safety are promptly investigated and the root causes are analysed. Relevant lessons are shared within the organisation.
Our branches, which work for customers in the chemical industry, have an SCC certificate, which confirms the effectiveness of our SHE system.
