Meeting all legal requirements in relation to environmental protection and occupational safety is a matter of course. We act beyond that and establish a number of measures so that environmental protection and occupational safety are applied in practice on a daily basis in our company.
Only healthy employees, who feel good at the workplace and enjoy their work, can contribute to our success as a company. Especially the work at construction sites for our customers conceals potential hazards and health risks. Thus, we ensure in particular that all employees and partnering companies know and comply with our safety regulations so that they can do their work unharmed. We provide all the necessary technical equipment, general organizational conditions, and the required personal protective gear for this.
Our goal is that each project is implemented without a work accident. This is only possible with the commitment of all employees and our stringent safety standards. Moreover, we have developed an internal evaluation system, with the insight of which we continue to optimize the protective gear of our employees as well as our ongoing training measures for accident prevention.
Environmental awareness begins with daily decisions, behaviors, and habits in day-to-day business. This is why we continue to raise our employees’ awareness about a resource-efficient work method in all our processes. Thus, our employees receive, for example, training and informational material about a fuel-efficient way of driving, through which not only the total fuel consumption in the company can be lowered, but also the private fuel consumption of the employees.
With a bundle of detailed measures, particularly the fleet at J.Christof has been able to significantly lower their ecological footprint. These measures include, for example, the conversion of the vehicle fleet to low-emission vehicles of the exhaust emission standard class Euro 6 as well as the acquisition of electric vehicles for distances around the respective location. With these measures, 130,000 kWh of energy or 41.4 tons of CO2were already able to be conserved for the good of our environment in 2016.
