Safety and Environmental Protection

We take our responsibility in the areas of occupational and product safety and environmental protection very seriously. These are described in our own Safety and Environmental Protection Manual. Because everything we do should be future-oriented and responsible in order to achieve sustainable development.

For years, the guidelines of the worldwide Responsible Care (RC) initiative have been an important element of our safety and environmental policy (see our certificate). We have derived our own RC corporate guidelines from this.

We take sustainable processes very seriously. They are an integral part of our daily activities. For example, we participate in the EcoVadis sustainability platform and have joined the UN Global Compact initiative. The current report  and further information can be found here on our website.

Award for employee-orientated trainings

All internal trainings regarding safe work environment and the corresponding processes at LuV have been digitalized for years. These electronic trainings (eTrainings) provide flexibility and are highly accepted by our employees. Understanding of the training contents are validated by electronic tests (eTests) that are part of the eTraining modules. employees helps to further their knowledge, providing methods for checking.

Regularly these trainings are updated not only in terms of content but also in terms of usability and user acceptance. Therefor we are proud that in 2019 LuV has been awarded with the Intermedia Globe Gold for "Employee-orientated trainings".
 

Lehmann&Voss&Co. (LuV) has been involved for almost 10 years in cooperation projects with Hamburg schools.
The school cooperation projects with district schools were installed to familiarize pupils with the topic of plastics from a practical 'experience point of view'. The central aim is, in addition to the technical aspects, to provide young people with practical occupational safety and health on site and thus to promote proper behavior in companies at an early stage. In this way, safe work is promoted from a prevention perspective, and later accident risks are minimized. These cooperation projects are constantly being developed.

With these projects LuV was able to successfully participate in some competitions (including 2nd place at the School Prize of the Hamburg Economy 2010, nomination for the German Occupational Safety and Health Award 2013, etc.).

With this background, LuV has been asked in 2018 to participate in an EU project and, as part of an EU case study, contributes to the topic of good practice in occupational safety and health. This case study has now been published:
