The GWS is checked on an ongoing basis by qualified specialists and continuously refined and improved. In addition to the working environment and working conditions, individual health-related behaviour is also supported.
The reintegration of sick or injured employees is also part of the OHM system. Reintegration support is offered to disability pensioners as well.
