“Safety with a System” Certification

At its Wesel site, our BYK division was the first company in our group and one of the very first in Germany to have its occupational health management (OHM) certified by the German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the Raw Materials and Chemical Industry (BG RCI). The audit is a new part of “Safety with a System” certification, which has to be renewed every three years. It is based on quality criteria that the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) developed for occupational health management. The auditors analyzed documents and interviewed members of the management board as well as managerial staff. They came to the conclusion that the health management system at the Wesel site is effective.
