To meet the requirements under the German Safety and Health at Work Act and accident prevention regulations, we specify clearly formulated responsibilities and processes.
In organisational terms, the Occupational Safety Working Group manages cross-cutting issues on a uniform basis throughout the Group. It is headed by the EnBW’s Chief Technical Officer. Occupational safety at EnBW comes organisationally under the Department of Occupational Safety & Preventive Fire Protection, Crisis Management and the Environment. This is a central service provider for major parts of the Group and is responsible for governance matters. For this governance role, there is a direct reporting line to the Board of Management. Key information on the activities is described in EnBW’s Integrated Annual Report.
The Occupational Safety and Preventive Fire Protection Team is responsible for the entire EnBW Group. This team brings together expertise in occupational safety, preventive fire protection, hazardous substances and operational, plant and product safety. It also includes safety officers, trained first aiders and emergency responders.
For a continuous improvement process, we establish all necessary measures to minimise accidents at work and work-related health hazards and to organise preventive fire protection.
