Health & Safety

Health & Safety

EEW considers health and safety to be the most important aspects of our business activities. For this reason, safety is the top priority in everything we do at EEW. We believe that all accidents are preventable. To achieve our goal of zero work-related injuries, it is critical that we work together as a team and collaborate with our customers, suppliers and partners. Our approach is to take care of each other, to support and protect one other.

Weekly toolbox meetings

The weekly toolbox meetings between supervisors and employees create information transparency and an opportunity to exchange on topics relevant to workplace safety. Our health and safety experts, shift supervisors and production staff discuss potential risks, current incidents and innovations. This internal training measure keeps all production staff up to date.

Analysis of safety hazards and derivation of preventive actions

All our workplaces, especially in the production area, are regularly analyzed and subjected to a risk assessment. In this way, our HSE department determines which risks occur in the workplaces and how they can be eliminated. The complete substitution of the risk is prioritized. In a next step technical solutions or organizational measures such as special training courses follow. In this way risks are systematically reduced.

Internal & external audits

To ensure a continuous improvement process and compliance with legal requirements, we regularly conduct internal and external audits. Thus, on the one hand, we audit all instructions that we impose on ourselves. This internal control mechanism ensures that we can guarantee a high level of quality, occupational safety and environmental protection. An audit team, consisting of two members of staff who audit independently of each other, check various production processes on a random basis.

Furthermore, through our ISO 45001 certification, we are committed to consistently adhering to these guidelines and are regularly audited for compliance by customers, suppliers and certification bodies.

Info Center for Safety

Our HSE Info Center is centrally located at our production site in Erndtebrück so as -  to be easily accessible for all staff on site.

The HSE team is available during daily service hours, which cover all shifts, to answer any questions about occupational safety. With the Safety Point, a central location was created in production where confidential concerns are discussed and exchange with colleagues is actively practiced. The separate room is used to talk about hazardous areas and incidents, to ask general questions about safety or to conduct briefings. The central contact point for the safety officer is also located there.

Education and training of the employees

First aiders and safety officers are regularly trained for our company. This ensures that those co-workers who are trained to provide first aid and recognize and address unsafe conditions at an early stage are present at all time. Naturally, the courses are regularly repeated by external instructors to refresh knowledge. The integration of safety officers also provides a supervisory body that acts as a link between our HSE department and all other staff. In this way, important knowledge is passed on to all co-workers.

Medical Check-up and Vaccination

Our staff undergo regular mandatory or voluntary occupational medical examinations, depending on their workplace and their activities, to ensure that they are physically fit for their tasks and that no health issues have arisen in the course of their employment with the company. In addition, our employees have the opportunity to take advantage of various vaccination offers, such as an annual flu vaccination.

Inhouse occupational/vocational Rehabilitation Management

If employees are sick for a longer period of time or if there is an excessive level of sickness in a department, our BEM (company integration management) team takes care of this. In addition, the colleagues in the BEM team provide support with rehabilitation applications or the application for health-preserving measures such as lifting aids. This ensures that the health of our employees is maintained in the long term.

Health and Social Hotline

With the health and social hotline of "Diakonie in Südwestfalen", we offer our employees and relatives help with health and/or social issues to care about personal health of our employees and maintain a trouble-free environment for them. The services range from arranging doctor/specialist appointments, advice on addiction problems to support with financial difficulties, help with caring for relatives and other difficult life situations.

The success of the health and social hotline has led to its recent launch at our second German location in Rostock.

Urban Sportsclub Membership

To support the health and fitness of our employees, we offer our workforce discounted membership in the Urban Sportsclub. This concept allows them to take part in thousands of different sports activities throughout Germany with just one registration. The offer is particularly diverse because not only fitness studios are USC partners, but also swimming pools, yoga studios or climbing gyms.

In this way, we encourage our employees to balance their job with a sporting activity.


Every Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., a group of motivated colleagues from the Erndtebrück site meet to do early-morning exercises together. Under the guidance of trained fitness instructors, they complete a strength and cardio program lasting around 1 hour. After the "boot camp", they can then start the working day feeling strong and awake.

"Even if it sometimes takes some effort in the morning, you're always glad you went to Team Sport afterwards. You have already done some sports and as colleagues we always motivate each other," reports Pascal Irle, ERP consultant at EEW PPE.
