Safety Training Measures

Every time technical measures are implemented to heighten occupational safety, employees feel their safety has been enhanced. This can lead to negligent behavior in everyday work. To counteract this development, we implement organizational and training measures. Among them are so-called safety days. To illustrate the importance of the issue, ACTEGA Overlake used playful methods at an information event at our São Paulo site last year. For example, the works fire department performed a play about first aid and there was a costume competition.

ELANTAS Europe offers employees an interactive, multimedia e-learning program at its Hamburg site. With it, employees can learn about statutory occupational safety issues online at their workplace. In addition to recurring topics, the program also provides current information on occupational safety. The software adapts to the learning speed of the respective user, enables every employee to check his or her success, and subsequently documents the information imparted, thus providing legally required verification. In 2015, employees at the site completed a total of 850 hours of safety training.
