Occupational safety management system for health and safety at work
There are many reasons for an occupational health and safety management system. Safety can be established in a legally secure manner and processes can be continuously improved – it’s also a competitive factor. An important aspect for the midsized employer is the health and motivation of its own employees. Systematic occupational health and safety, and an effective occupational health and safety management system (OH&S), can help promote this.
The "Sicher mit System" ("Safe with a System") seal of approval from the German Employers' Liability Insurance Association for Wood and Metal (BGHM) is based on the National Guideline for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. "The path to the seal of approval via BGHM is uncomplicated and effective," emphasizes Managing Director Holger Vogt. Participation in the quality seal procedure can be applied for online at BGHM. The procedure is divided into basic consulting, management consulting and assessment. Before the consulting phase, an assessment is carried out at the company. The consultation is carried out by the AMS experts at the BGHM and provides the opportunity to identify needs for action. The aim of this process is to prove that all legal requirements have been introduced and implemented. After a positive assessment, R+W Antriebselemente GmbH was certified as meeting all requirements for systematic and effective occupational health and safety, and was authorized to use the "Sicher mit System" seal of approval for the next three years.
