ENVIRONMENT

MINIMIZING THE RISK POTENTIAL

Environmental considerations - and also protection of the employees - are key concerns for us. As a result, whenever possible we use water-soluble paints and give preference to alternative products over solvents. In the paint and exhaust system, we employ state-of-the-art filtration materials. In addition, our employees are issued suitable protective gear if no alternatives are available.

We consistently implement the industry solution for occupational safety and health from the Schweizerische Metall-Union labour union.

Out of environmental considerations, we employ the industry solution of the AGSV and have set the goal of certifying our environmental protection management system in accordance with ISO 14001.
