In the occupational safety area, the principle is “zero tolerance for accidents”. Extensive safety instructions and training measures, safety audits, and workshops as part of the continuous improvement process (CIP) help to achieve the targets. In order to minimise hazards, the causes of recorded incidents (near misses, accidents, dangerous situations) and the implementation and effectiveness of the countermeasures taken in response are continuously analysed. Certifications and occupational safety committees contribute to this, in parallel with guidelines and safety instructions. Processes and standards in the occupational safety area are aligned with the new international EN ISO 45001 standard, certified, and integrated into the existing management system.

At AMAG, learning represents an essential part of the corporate culture. Well-trained employees are a crucial factor in sustainable corporate performance and success. Especially in the age of Industry 4.0 and digitalisation, lifelong learning is not just a slogan, but the key to success. With the implementation of a Learning Management System (LMS) and digital learning, AMAG intends to introduce a company-wide tool that provides all employees with the best possible support and qualifies them for future tasks to the greatest extent. The establishment of a new “learning culture” and the integration of learning into everyday working life comprise the fundamental challenges.
