Balance 2015 ENG

Continuously optimized OHS processes All significant activities in the area of work- place safety at the Lufthansa Group are coordinated by its Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) department – together with physicians, social counselors, work coun- cils and those responsible at the respective Group companies. All activities aim to maintain and improve the employees’ health and fitness for work by means of continuously optimized job safety proces- ses (see page 101, Balance 2014). Just how successful these measures are is demonstrated by the example of Lufthansa Technik: The MRO specialist’s Hamburg location was again rated as “Company with an exemplary occupational safety system” by Hamburg’s Office for Occupational Safety in July 2014, receiving another six-year certificate to follow those from 2000 and 2007. Health campaign “Cargo fit: Join the fun” at Lufthansa Cargo In 2014, the Lufthansa Group’s employ- ees again benefited from a multitude of Corporate Health Management offers. For example, Lufthansa Cargo organized the health campaign “Cargo fit: Join the fun” in October in Frankfurt. It invited employees to test their flexibility, stress resistance and fitness over the course of one week and to immerse themselves into the topic of nutri- tion through interactive media. Participants also received health tips and individual fitness plans. Lufthansa uniforms manufactured according to OEKO-Tex® Standard 100 Lufthansa equips its pilots, cabin crews and ground personnel with uniforms that are manufactured without harmful substances as well as in accordance with sustainable and fair principles. To guarantee this, all materials such as fabrics, yarns and but- tons are tested in laboratories according to human ecological parameters. Only if each and every component meets the stringent independent tests for pollutants carried out by the OEKO-Tex® Association does the uniform manufacturer receive the quality label “Confidence in textiles – Tested for harmful substances according to OEKO- Tex® Standard 100”. In addition, regular supplier audits at the production sites ensure adherence to the aviation company’s supplier standards. These audits are carried out by a general contractor on Lufthansa’s behalf and supervised regularly by Lufthansa employees.
