Health and Safety
As commonly known, fiberglass irritates the eyes, skin, and the respiratory system with potential symptoms such as rush on the skin, sore eyes and throat, hoarseness and cough. Despite those, scientific evidence demonstrates that fiber glass is safe to manufacture, install and use when recommended work practices are followed to reduce temporary mechanical irritations
Hazardous Substances Ordinance in Germany dictates a maximum occupational exposure limit of 86 mg/m³ and our enterprise has taken the following steps to ensure the safety of our staff and protection of the environment:
- We have a policy on health and safety where our employees are educated weekly on the fiberglass production processes and the impact on health.
- We have installed effective extraction and filtration equipment to ensure safety and efficiency.
- We are in the process of partnering with the department of health to freely examine our staff twice a year as part of employee wellness programme.
