The Rhenus Group makes employee safety its top priority. All the Rhenus SE & Co. KG business sites aim to provide well-founded work and health environments. For this purpose, we factor in and manage the risks that have been identified within our corporate policy and our company goals.
Our central occupational health and safety organisation supports the individual business sites in fulfilling the statutory requirements on safety and health protection. All the business sites can prove that they comply with their obligation to organise their operations and business processes in line with health and safety requirements. A central department manages the complete health and safety work within the Rhenus Group and it supports our business sites with regard to all the relevant issues. An emergency coordinator is appointed within the organisation and he or she can be reached round the clock by all managers and employees.
We assess the risks to employees and derive the necessary measures from this process: we pay attention to the correct clothing, fire protection, safety markings, noise, light and room temperatures. We analyse work stations with screens. Our carefully selected company medical officers provide us with valuable information to offer even better health and safety at work. We are in the process of obtaining certification according to DIN EN ISO 18001 and this will be continually rolled out.
Rhenus SE & Co. KG supports the implementation of human rights (according to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECtHR)).
