As a logistics service provider, our workforce and the health and safety of our employees are our most important assets. Our holistic approach is therefore based on the technical and organisational possibilities within the process cycles, followed by the factors of individual safety behaviour and the culture of occupational safety. The focus is on the provision of healthy and safe working conditions, intuitively safe and ergonomic workplaces, as well as interpersonal and intrapersonal behavioural motives in work processes. In the interest of a zero-accident culture, we analyse the working environment and processes in a safety-oriented manner in order to create operationally compliant solutions and conditions, as well as regulations for occupational health and safety.
Central management structures and processes are supplemented by system-based controlling to ensure compliance with legal, regulatory and other requirements as a matter of course, thereby laying the foundation for sustainable corporate success. The defined requirements and documentation are implemented with customised in-house IT systems. Systems for learning and exchange at team, branch and corporate group level constantly strengthen the prevention of accidents and work-related illnesses, as well as the improvement of the occupational safety organisation.
The Health & Safety Service Centre and a large number of branches have already been certified according to ISO 45001. By continuously developing our standards and methods, we strengthen our management system independently of certification through a dialogue with our employees based on partnership. This includes low-barrier reporting options for occupational health and safety information via mobile devices, as well as the active, personal involvement of the workforce in the design and improvement of occupational health and safety. In this way, we maintain a zero-accident culture in which we value every employee as an expert in his or her workplace and as part of our occupational safety culture.
