Transforming the EverydayThe world of work is dynamically changing, as are the demands and needs regarding Health and Safety. Adapting and re-designing our work systems is a continuous task requiring the involvement, engagement and participation of all employees. Our ambition is to maintain a work environment that supports personal growth and optimizes well-being. This ambition extends beyond the prevention of incidents and diseases. And transforms the everyday of our approach to Health and Safety: Based on reliable management systems, internal monitoring, and controls to mitigate health and safety risks effectively, Health and Safety management at Siemens aims to facilitate participation, support learning and guide adaptation.

The guiding principles of our approach to health, safety and well-being are: “People are the solution” and “A healthy and safe environment enables a healthy and safe behavior”.
