The major social concerns include the welfare of the key stakeholders: our employees. The own business unit „Health Safety Environment“ (HSE) at Prolactal is looking to move beyond compliance with health and safety regulations to continuously improve all aspects of the working environment that result in a happy and healthy workforce.
The HSE team at Prolactal
The HSE team at Prolactal consists of DI (FH) Helmut Honauer and DI (FH) Maria Brodnik. Their actions reach from daily business such as waste separation, risk assessments and the introduction of safety regulations to long-term goals and training, like the annual Safety Week and certifications such as BS OHSAS 18001 – an International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems which provides a framework for the effective management including all aspects of risk management and legal compliance.
