Occupational safety and health management

Rheinmetall is aware of its responsibility toward its employees and strives to ensure that the working environment is safe, healthy and clean. The Group ensures occupational and health protection at the workplace within the context of the national provisions in place at its various locations.

Workplaces are designed in accordance with the legally and generally recognized safety and industrial medicine regulations, thereby allowing everyone to perform their work without incident and without being subjected to undue stress and strain. Each and every employee of the Rheinmetall Group is obligated to familiarize themselves with all the relevant safety regulations and to observe these in their own working area diligently and at all times – in the interests of not only themselves, but also the company as a whole.

Rheinmetall is committed to minimizing to the greatest extent possible all risks and hazards that could potentially endanger the health and safety of employees and third parties. Through continuous improvements in the workplace, suitable measures (e.g. ergonomic aids and protective equipment) and a broad range of prevention programs and health-promoting measures, Rheinmetall seeks to maintain and promote the health, performance and satisfaction of its employees.

During the course of the year, employees benefit from not only medical checkups but also a range of prevention programs. The spectrum includes everything from free vaccinations and regular health checkups, through internal and external sporting opportunities and consulting services, to medically appropriate reintegration following a period of long illness. In the year under review, the rate of illness in the German Rheinmetall companies was 4.8% (previous year: 4.9%).
