EHS – Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety Guidelines

Altmann Analytik acknowledges its responsibilities regarding environmental and occupational health and safety. EHS – Environment, Health & Safety – defines the three areas of environment, health and safety within a company, encompassing various laws, regulations and requirements that help to protect the environment, employees and operations.

As a company, we comply with the relevant laws and all other commitments we have made in every country where we operate. Additionally, we establish EHS objectives and incorporate appropriate EHS criteria into business decisions. To implement these, we develop management processes and provide employee training. We ensure open and timely communication as well as a high level of employee consultation and participation. We take measures to identify, assess and mitigate EHS-related risks, as well as to prevent injuries, illnesses, and losses.

To protect the environment, we avoid pollution from our activities and transportation, reduce waste generation, and decrease our energy consumption. Naturally, we recognize the ten principles of the UN Global Compact as fundamental principles of our business activities and expect our suppliers and service providers to commit to them as well: particularly compliance with legal regulations, providing a healthy and safe working environment, respecting human rights, prohibiting child and forced labor, respecting freedom of association, and providing fair pay to employees.

Upon request, customers or suppliers receive a detailed description of our principles regarding international quality, environmental, occupational health and safety, and compliance standards.
