Freudenberg - Innovating Together

We all take Care

We all take care The “We all take care" initiative encourages every single employee to contribute his/her ideas and suggestions for improvement, thus generating a culture in which everyone feels a responsibility for safety at work and environmental protection. The strategic goal of occupational safety is to achieve zero accidents.

Annual awards presented for outstanding projects motivate individual teams to identify with health and safety at the workplace and the protection of the environment. Positive contributions can be emulated, thus bringing continuous improvements for the entire company. Freudenberg has had a low accident rate compared with the industry sector for many years. And it is no coincidence that the accident rate in the Freudenberg Group has fallen steadily over the last few years.

 

The situation with regard to environmental protection is a similar one. Many of the company’s environmental measures go well beyond the legal requirements. Well over 80% of the Freudenberg Group’s production sites around the world have already been certified to ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18011 – and all production sites have to get this international certification. We all take care – Setting an example for responsible action Zero Accidents: It’s not about numbers, it’s about people.
