Excellent occupational safety and health protection at Trocellen.
Tested and passed!
“Safety first!” is an important principle which is part of everyday life at Trocellen.
Between April and 20 July 2017, our occupational health and safety management was reviewed and evaluated by the German Employers’ Association for Raw Materials and Chemical Industry (BG RCI) in accordance with the principles of the seal of quality “Safe with System”. During the appraisal, we could demonstrate that safety and health protection are organized systematically and effectively within our occupational health and safety management.
The “Seal of Quality – Safe with System” is an occupational health and safety management system based on the National Guidelines for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and the ILO-OSH International Guideline 2001, that complies with the requirements of OHSAS 18001.
The concept consists of the following five pillars:
- Management and organization (Objectives, policy, organization, agents, ASA)
- Involvement of employees (Cooperation, instruction, health…)
- Defining procedures (Flow of information, third party companies, emergencies…)
- Evaluation and improvement (Site inspections, examinations, events, reviews…)
A special focus was on the correct treatment of employees and the management in terms of occupational health and safety. In assessing the occupational health and safety management system, the documentation was examined, but also the attitude of the employees, the superiors, the site managers and the works council were evaluated in intensive interviews by M. Sc., Dipl.-Ing. Supervisor / AMS assessor, Mr. Oliver Kockskämper. In addition, naturally, the implementation and the situation of occupational health and safety on site and in the workplaces were also inspected.
Now Trocellen GmbH belongs to the approx. 250 companies in the industry throughout Germany that have already been awarded the seal of quality “Safe with System” from BG RCI.
It corresponds to less than one percent of all member companies of the Employers’ Association.
Within the Trocellen Group, we have a primary principle: “Security has priority – without exception”. The BG seal of quality “Safe with System” recognises our continuous work and efforts to improve in terms of occupational health and safety. Safety is a community task that is developed by us all, every day.
In a small celebration on 12.09, the seal of quality was awarded by Dr. Martiny (Supervisor / BG RCI) to the members of the Occupational Health and Safety Commission, Mr. Hofenbitzer (Safety Officer), Ms. Rozenberg (QM/AS), Mr. Wilkens (Production Manager), Dr. Ross (site manager), Ms. Jakobi (representative of the works council chairman) and Ms. Ochs (HR manager).
The issue of occupational health and safety is a living process.
Looking ahead, Trocellen would like to strengthen and expand its commitment in this area.
We are proud of our Trocellen team and the successes that we have achieved together.
