Environment, Health & Safety

The company has an Integrated Management System as per ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and SafetyManagement). An Energy Audit as per DIN EN 16247/1 has been performed by us and we are member of the Northern Hessian Energy Efficiency Network. SCHMIDTSCHE SCHACK | ARVOS GmbH is also a member of the VDSI - Association for Safety, Health and Environmental Protection at Work e.V.

We have committed ourselves to develop and manufacture our products according to the latest state of the art with the aim to save resources and treat them economically, both during manufacture and in later operation. New acquisitions are made on basis of ecological aspects.

Furthermore we especially obligate ourselves to prevent occupational accidents, injuries or work-related illnesses, in particular eye injuries and events with adverse effect on the environment. We thus provide for working conditions, which are safe and in conformity with health requirements. Dangers for the employees are, wherever feasible, immediately eliminated and risks for safety, health and environment are minimized.

We reduce environmental burdens, such as air emissions, noise, waste and effluent to the minimum possible and treat resources (raw materials, energy, water) in an economical way.
Our employees and the employees’ representation are consulted and involved in all operational issues, wherever this is necessary and possible.

The Integrated Management System is applied to detect potential errors in the whole company, to analyse their causes and to avoid mistakes by implementing suitable corrective measures. We are thus in a position to provide our customers with products of highest quality at fair market prices.
