Occupational health and safety: Together for the safety of your company

A company's employees are its most important capital. Their protection in the workplace is of essential importance – and you as the employer are responsible for it. WESSLING helps to protect the safety and health of your employees in the long term and in conformity with legislation.

Workers working in a risky work environment

A fire, an explosion or a fall – an accident at work can occur in a split second. However, the consequences can be long-term, resulting in human suffering, periods of absence and costs. Such accidents at work can be prevented through specific measures in the majority of cases. The legislator has enacted various laws and regulations to ensure this. The employer is primarily responsible for implementing the occupational health and safety regulations within the company.

The WESSLING team of experts provides consulting and support to help you comply with these regulations – in the form of risk analyses, goal definitions and programs as well as improvement potential tracking. We make your corporate occupational health and safety a worthwhile investment.

Occupational health and safety responsibility and duties

As a company, you are legally obliged to guarantee the safety and health of your employees at work. This also includes the introduction of occupational health and safety management systems. Because you have to organise and implement workplaces, equipment and processes in such a way that they do not pose a risk to workers. The most important regulation is the Occupational Health and Safety Act. It applies to all areas of work and regulates the minimum occupational safety requirements throughout the EU. Added to this is a barely comprehensible wealth of industry-specific laws, ordinances and regulations such as TRGS, VbF, WHG, VAwS, BImSchG and BGV.

With their extensive, in-depth knowledge, our occupational health and safety experts support you in implementing the legally specified requirements within your company in the long term. On the basis of comprehensive risk assessments and sustainable management systems, you comply with the regulations and achieve a high level of legal security.

„Occupational health and safety is a matter of absolute trust. Because a company's success depends entirely on its employees. Transparency is therefore an essential element of our activities.“

Long-term investment in health and safety

Occupational health and safety is more than complying with legal regulations. Besides the introduction of occupational health and safety management systems, precise and individual solutions are a worthwhile investment in the sustainability and success of your company. Employee absences cause high costs within the company. They can disrupt operations and harm the company's performance and competitiveness. Optimally protecting the health and safety of your employees at the workplace should therefore lie in your corporate interest.

Comprehensive consulting, measurement and checking as well as training courses and advanced training measures tailored to your company are crucial to the best possible solution.
