Vossloh’s occupational health management aims to offer all employees preventive healthcare. This includes the occupational safety measures already mentioned, workplace ergonomics, driver safety training and company medical care, as well as making fruit available on a daily basis, nutritional counseling, company sports (including running groups and yoga courses), help quitting smoking, and preventive measures (including colorectal cancer screening, flu vaccinations, health screening and health tips).
In 2021, Vossloh Fastening Systems used a master’s thesis prepared within the Company to find out which health protection measures employees consider particularly important. A number of key topics emerged, including musculoskeletal, as well as cardiovascular diseases, stress management and nutrition. In the Customized Modules division, employees have been receiving psychological support as required, thanks to a 24/7 telephone hotline since mid-2021. In 2021, Vossloh Rail Services tested medical exoskeletons in the welding plants to see if the back muscles of employees could be relieved.
