Occupational safety

People come first.
The number of accidents is decreasing.

At thyssenkrupp, occupational safety takes the highest priority. We make no compromises when it comes to protecting our employees from accidents and work-related illnesses. Our vision is to reduce the number of accidents to zero.

Right from the outset, we give our customers and partners the certainty of knowing that we manage occupational safety in a highly professional and systematic manner, a fact borne out by the corresponding certifications. These include the SCC**/SCCP standard for technical service providers and the DIN EN ISO 45001 international standard.

In addition to complying with these standards, we aspire to continue improving our occupational safety record. Each year we set ourselves ambitious targets that we regularly surpass.

As an integral part of the thyssenkrupp Group, it goes without saying that we organize occupational safety at an international level, which enables us to access the Group’s resources in order to train and qualify our employees accordingly.

In all questions of occupational safety, the expertise and efficiency of a globally operating corporate group culminates in one fundamental principle – people come first – no ifs or buts.

The continual downward trend of the Lost Time Injury Rate (LTIR) proves that we consistently and actively practice our safety philosophy in our everyday working lives.
