Putting health and safety first
Trade Supervisory Board certifies occupational and plant safety at Trans-Textil GmbH
Used in protective clothing for firefighters, emergency services and police forces, the functional textiles produced by Trans-Textil GmbH ensure safety the world over. In-house, too, the Freilassing company places great importance on the health of its over 90 employees and the local community. This commitment has now been reviewed and confirmed anew by the Trade Supervisory Board of the District Government of Upper Bavaria after the company requested additional certification according to the internationally recognised “OHRIS” standard.
Trans-Textil GmbH has been awarded the OHRIS certification for the fourth time in a row, this time in person by Friedrich Wink, Head of the Trade Supervisory Board, who took the time to acquaint himself with the company on site together with his colleague, Department Head Jasmin Birkl. This followed a full-day audit that looked at the processes and the management system in place for occupational and plant safety, which the team successfully passed. Trans-Textil thus now counts among the approximately 370 Bavarian companies to hold the OHRIS (“Occupational Health and Risk Management System”) certification, which complies with the requirements of the ISO 45001 standard and is thus recognised internationally.
The fact that a medium-sized company such as Trans-Textil has put an occupational safety management system in place does not come as a given. It does, however, show that the company is very much people-driven,” remarked Friedrich Wink.
