Health, Safety and Environmental Policy

A leading manufacturer of torsional vibration dampers, Hasse & Wrede GmbH, Berlin, is committed to fulfilling the strictest environmental standards for its products and processes as well as ensuring safe and ergonomically-designed workstations.

With our environmental protection management, we, together with our employees, customers, suppliers and the general public, are gearing our activities towards continuously improving environmental performance. A periodic reexamination of our environmental targets is realized through reoccurring environmental management reviews.

The following guidelines are used to implement these policies in a practical and cost-efficient manner.

  • Avoiding hazards and health risks in the work environment
    Unnecessary burdening and endangering of employees must be minimized in order to prevent injuries and accidents.
  • Avoiding resource wastage
    Wasting resources, such as energy, manpower, materials and chemical substances, must avoided on all levels and in all processes.
  • Obeying laws
    All laws pertaining to environmental and work safety must be obeyed.
  • Testing new developments for environmental compatibility
    New products, processes and activities are tested for environmental compatibility as a preliminary measure and developed according to the latest knowledge and state of the art.
  • Promoting environmental consciousness amongst the staff
    We encourage our staff members to practice environmental protection actively and independently and at the same time to participate in the improvement processes. Consciousness is supported by trainings and information on the subject of environmental protection.
  • Compliance with environmental standards by suppliers
    We expect our suppliers and contractual partners to maintain local and other environmental and safety standards to which they subscribe. We support them in implementing necessary steps.
