Health and safety certifications

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. Internationally recognized in this field is the ISO 45001 standard; it has replaced the formerly more common OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) standard. At Vossloh, almost all major production locations worldwide are certified to the ISO 45001 standard or to a lesser extent the OHSAS 18001 standard. At the end of 2021, these units employed around 88 percent (previous year: 76 percent) of Vossloh’s workforce. Since November 2021, the Customized Modules division has been preparing for certification of the Bydgoszcz site to the ISO 45001 standard, with another unit in Malaysia to follow. The units that joined the Group in the year under review are to be certified to the ISO 45001 standard as quickly as possible, as are the Tie Technologies sites in North America.
