Leadership and Commitment

The management determines the direction of the company and sets the vision and principles, how to deal with health and safety within the company. They commit themselves to pay attention to the occupational health and safety and to ensure that the subsequent levels follow the commitment and implement the goals. The top management provides the framework for the organization and the application of occupational health and safety throughout the organization across all levels, and controls the development of the OHS. The goal of the top management is the protection and the continuous improvement of safety and health of all members of the company. Therefore the top management sets concrete goals, which need to be checked regularly. Crucial for the development and implementation of an OHS policy is the continuous and proactive involvement of the top management. Another important point is the two-way communication between employees, contractors and other stakeholders and actors of the OHS.
