RAG employees also have access to regular consultations with occupational health service provider Arbeitsmedizinischer Dienst GmbH. The organisation focuses on providing the employer and employees with specialist, detailed advice on all matters related to occupational health.
Operating and drilling sites are inspected on a monthly basis – the emphasis is on risk prevention in work processes, e.g. proper use of working materials, and analysing and measuring noise, lighting, indoor climate, pollutants, etc.
Psychological advice and support, including occupational psychology, plays an important part in RAG’s health promotion strategy. This includes evaluation of emotional stress in the workplace, as well as personal (occupational) psychological support for employees.
Another aim is to encourage staff to take part in health promotion measures, especially those connected with exercise, healthy eating and the working environment.
