Jokey Gummersbach receives the quality seal "Sicher mit System" (safe with system)
Jokey Gummersbach SE has received the quality seal "Sicher mit System" from the German professional association of the raw materials and chemical industry (BG RCI) for its professionally implemented occupational health and safety management system (AMS). With this certificate, the professional association confirms that Jokey meets all the requirements for systematic and effective occupational health and safety based on the quality seal and the associated industry-specific implementation
The aim of BG RCI's certification is to support its affiliated companies in the area of occupational health and safety. The quality seal "Sicher mit System”, which is valid for three years, is awarded to companies whose commitment to occupational health and safety goes beyond the obligatory level by introducing an AMS. This is linked to the continuous improvement of occupational health and safety.
Until the actual audit in December 2020 carried out by employees of the professional association, Jokey successfully passed through various stages in a two-year process - from inventory to a precise recording and examination of the processes along with determining the need for action to the final assessment. Experts from the professional association accompanied this process as consultants.
Jokey has used the certification process to bring its entire occupational health and safety management system up to the highest level. "The establishment of an AMS involved extensive safety checks at all levels of the company," summarises Frank Diesterbeck, plant manager at Jokey Gummersbach. “By documenting all processes in detail, we managed to raise awareness of the issue among our employees. Thus, accidents and work-related illnesses can be avoided even better in the future."
The quality seal confirms excellent occupational health and safety at Jokey
Thomas Becker, COO of the Jokey Group, praises the good cooperation of the Jokey employees from all departments: "Without the committed participation and good communication of all teams, we would not have been able to successfully pass this audit. The certification shows that safe and healthy work has a very high priority at Jokey. At the same time, we know that receiving the seal of approval is the basis for further improvements in the area of occupational safety. We look forward to tackling the challenges ahead."
