Our Responsibility - QUAER
QUAER stands for the internal management system integrated in our company and is the German abbreviation for: quality, environmental, occupational, energy, safety and risk management. Our company not only is partner in the field of economics, industry, and the market, but also is part of our society and our ecosystem. Consequently, we have to and want to assume responsibility for our actions. It is our objective to comply with existing laws, regulations and legitimate requirements of parties interested. Furthermore, we commit to assume responsibility in industrial, societal, social, and ecological aspects within the scope of our integrated management system. In this regard, the main focus is on the conservation of resources, the reduction of environmental relevant activities, saving of energy, and the recognition and reduction of risk factors. QUAER is based on a process-oriented management approach. Stakeholder analyses and risk and opportunity assessments not only take place on a company level, but the same methodology is used on the process level too. Important parameters are gathered and assessed. In this way, we recognize deviations in the target-actual comparison within a continuous improvement process, and after a root cause analysis, we are in the position to take corrective measures.
The implementation of the certified quality management system is the fundamental precondition for ensuring and complying with the quality agreements made with our customers, and for making our demand on quality transparent. A clear definition and structure of business processes is the prerequisite for an appropriate quality management system. Quality is the basis for success. An improvement of quality (product, service, delivery) is our objective. It is our task to regard quality as a matter of course.
Conserving of resources and minimizing the impact of our activities on the ecosystem are the most important goals of our company which we pursue in respect of our ecological responsibility. We fulfil our responsibility to the environment by the constant evaluation of the use of resources and the waste accumulation, by regularly checking the production processes in respect of their environmental relevance, and by raising the environmental awareness among the employees providing them with information and training.
Occupational Health and Safety:
Health and safety of our employees at the workplace are of outstanding importance. To enable safe working conditions, we check all processes on a regular basis – already starting in the planning phase – regarding risks to health, and we carry out respective risk assessments and optimize the same. We attach great importance to preventive measures and continuous improvement of health and safety at the workplace. Executive personnel acting as role model, accomplishing their executive tasks in a responsible way, involving all employees and have them take part, as well as the employees' action in their own responsibility lead to successful safety at work and the promotion of health.
We permanently pursue opportunities to optimize energy consumption, energy generation, and energy storage by means of reasonable technical developments. Therefore, we regularly determine and check the extent and manner of the use of energy and the energy consumption as well as the energy data and whether these are appropriate. As far as economically justified, we promote energy efficiency by purchasing energy-efficient products and services as well as the responsible way in which the employees deal with energy consumption by the implementation of technical assistance measures.
A consequent risk management secures the future of our company; well aware of the fact that every change and innovation, even if it is thoroughly planned and calculated, can give rise to a risk. However, we also regard risk management as opportunity management. This risk and opportunity management provides the methodological underpinning of QUAER – our responsibility.
