Our greatest asset

The people who work for us

As one of the region’s largest employers, the health and safety of our staff is a top priority for Stahl Judenburg GmbH. We have developed and implemented a series of effective measures to help us ensure that our employees are well looked after.

Preventative health care: Playing an active role in shaping your personal future

What’s the best time to invest in preventative health care? Now! Employees at Stahl Judenburg GmbH are given the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports activities, such as health groups, back muscle training, aqua-jogging, yoga and pilates. On top of this, we regularly invite our staff to interesting talks on a variety of health topics and offer them support in the form of work management and exercise coaching in the workplace. We also offer help to those looking to give up smoking. In terms of nutrition, one of the highlights we offer is our twice-monthly “healthy corners”, where we provide tips on how to eat healthily. 

This team spirit when it comes to health issues at Stahl Judenburg GmbH is remarkable. The Management Team, the employee representatives and the company doctor all support the project. Corporate health management has now been an integral part of day-to-day life at our company since 2008. Since then, Stahl Judenburg GmbH regularly is awarded the 'BGF seal of quality' by the Österreichisches Netzwerk für Betriebliche Gesundheitsförderung (Austrian Network for Workplace Health Promotion) for its commitment and long-term approach.

Occupational safety: Continuous improvement

In the field of occupational safety, it is our explicit aim to minimise and prevent accidents at work. On our occupational safety committee, our Management Board, the heads of our production operations, our works’ council, our company doctor, our safety representatives, our safety specialist and our employees all work hand in hand to achieve this aim. The committee meets four times a year, and ensures that our occupational safety is subject to continuous improvement.

Our “safety rep circle” includes members of each individual department, who meet up every two months to discuss current issues regarding employer safety. One of its many improvements has been the introduction of the “safety and eco points” system. Under this initiative, employees who want to demonstrate a special commitment to occupational safety can point out potential hazards to the environment or the health and safety of their employees. A bonus is provided for each valid report, which can then be combined with other points the employee has collected and exchanged. The committee was also responsible for drawing up the catalogue of “personal protective equipment (PPE)”, which describes what protective equipment is required for each different career profile and offers practical tips.
