Safety for the environment Safety for our employees Safety for the local area

Oxxynova GmbH views its employees as the fundamental basis and guarantor for the success of the company.

Occupational health and safety, amongst other things, is the foundation upon which this is built.

Setting up an occupational health and safety management system and applying this consistently is therefore vital in our eyes and of great importance in our daily business. In more concrete terms: systematic and full control of processes, identification of standards and effective implementation of these, regular inspections of technical installations, transparency in our operational procedures, as well as traceability and an ongoing minimisation of risk.

Our employees are equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) for their work and are obliged to wear this at all time.

Well trained employees identify potential risks in an early stage and ensure that these are eliminated, and also help to improve our systems and processes on an ongoing basis. For this reason, we place great emphasis on providing continuing education and training to all our employees.

Worked out in collaboration with a company doctor, internal health and safety measures (occupational health and safety) and precautions are set in place and safeguarded.

This means we are fully compliant with the range of tasks set by the German Social Code (SGB) VII with regard to prevention of accidents at work, occupational illnesses and work-related hazards.

All of this is done in close collaboration with the "Berufsgenossenschaft Rohstoffe und chemische Industrie" (BG RCI, previously BG Chemie, the German raw materials and chemical industry trade association), and the responsible Trading Standards Office in Hanover.
