Vossloh attaches great importance to workplace safety and protecting its employees’ health. The introduction of a corresponding management system and certification integrates current requirements into the ongoing processes of a company. The mandatory audits by independent external auditors ensure that legal obligations and requirements are met. The ISO 45001 standard is internationally recognized in this field, replacing the formerly more common OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) standard. At the end of 2022, the units certified according to this standard employed around 89 percent (previous year: 88 percent) of Vossloh’s workforce. 81 percent of operating companies have been certified in this way.
In June 2022, the Vossloh Fastening Systems plant in Anyang, China, successfully completed the ISO 45001 audit on its first attempt. The Dutch company Vossloh ETS BV was included in Vossloh Rail Services‘ group certification in 2022. In the Customized Modules division, the Bydgoszcz site was ISO 45001 certified for the first time in 2022, while the plant in Malaysia was certified at the beginning of 2023. Vossloh is committed to ensuring that new units which join the Group are ISO 45001 certified as quickly as possible.
