health & safety

As core voestalpine values, workplace safety and employee health enjoy the highest priority. We work to continually reduce the frequency of accidents and to improve the health status of all employees of our Group—wherever they work, whatever their position. Safety standards that apply Group-wide are at the root of an effective health & safety culture.

health & safety principles

  • Safety meetings are conducted with all employees in all Group companies on a regular basis.
  • The safety experts and health & safety officers at the production plants explain occupational safety rules and regulations during the monthly 15-minute safety training modules.
  • These meetings are also attended by the Works Council; they serve to discuss and adopt action steps aimed at improving workplace safety.
  • In addition, physical safety inspections are conducted once every quarter by management and once a year by the Management Board.
