Gas Connect Austria plays a key role in the supply of natural gas in Europe. Thus, we have a great responsibility which we live up to each and ervery day.
Putting the form into performance
Our integrated management system sets the parameters for our work. It outlines the health, safety, environmental and quality (HSEQ) principles and values which guide our operations.
Our aim: to achieve continuous improvements in processes and the quality of our work. The integrated management system is based on recognised standards and is subject to regular external certification.
Health: High-quality occupational health services and preventive measures
In addition to support from the company doctor, staff are also offered physiotherapy and nutrition advice. Preventive health checks, the ProFit preventive health programme and participation in health circles helps our employees stay fit and healthy.
Safety: We send employees home safely every night
We achieve this goal through initiatives such as the “Wir leben Sicherheit” (We live safety) program, because we are convinced. At Gas Connect we believe that all accidents are avoidable. We organise training courses, and work for continuous improvement in safety – for our own employees and contractors alike. To find out more about our safety regulations for contractors, visit the Workplace safety section of our website.
Security: Supply security thanks to secure facilities
Safeguarding Austria’s energy supply security is a heavy responsibility, so effective emergency and crisis management are top priorities for us. The same applies to protecting buildings, plant and offices against external threats.
Environment: For the good of the planet
Compliance with all legal requirements goes without saying at Gas Connect. The action we take to prevent damage to the environment goes far beyond the legal minimum, and we are always looking for ways to reduce avoidable emissions. This includes an effective waste management system. Energy efficiency is the order of the day, especially for our plant, and we never stop looking for ways to improve.
Quality: Safeguarding quality
Our commitment to top quality is reflected in high levels of customer satisfaction, and internal processes that meet all the applicable safety and environmental standards. Our integrated management system is central to maintaining high quality standards. The system is ISO 14001 (environment), ISO 9001(quality), ISO 50001 (energy), ISO 45001 (Occupational safety and health management) and ISO 27001 (information security) certified. Testing, inspection and certification organisation TÜV Süd carries out the regular audits and recertification.
