Occupational health and safety
With an integrated occupational safety system and comprehensive health management, Audi is striving to minimize work-related accidents and improve the health of its employees as well as their physical and mental performance.
Measures have been developed for all day-to-day operations to prevent accidents and impairments to health as well as to ensure that processes, equipment and vehicle components are designed to be safe. The Board of Management is responsible for compliance with the respective statutory regulations. Furthermore, each manager is responsible for occupational safety in his or her supervisory and functional area.
A works agreement combines all measures aimed at maintaining physical and mental health and applies to employees and apprentices at AUDI AG. Guidelines were introduced in 2017 for international sites as well.
Improving occupational safety
The Company is continuously developing preventative measures along with ways to improve the level of safety. In the event of work-related accidents, all incidents are analyzed by the line manager responsible together with the occupational safety experts.
In addition to annual instruction on hazards at the workplace, training is provided for specific target groups, such as operators of floor conveyors.
Improving employees’ health
One important component of health management is the Audi Checkup. The individual prevention program can be used by all employees during work hours and helps to identify and reduce health risks early on. Around 90 percent of the workforce takes part in the program.
Ergonomically designed workplaces
Audi designs its workstations in accordance with the latest ergonomic, safety and occupational health standards. As part of the Audi ergonomics strategy, the Company promotes intelligent work organization along with measures to apply the standards on an international scale.
