Working conditions for NWO-I staff

NWO-I attaches considerable importance to the safety, health, and well-being of its staff. Employer and employee are both responsible for health, safety, and well-being at the workplace.

With its health & safety policy, NWO-I seeks to realise the following goals.

  • Optimising the safety and protecting the health of all staff, guests, trainees, and visitors.
  • Handling installations, equipment, machines, and goods as healthily and as safely as possible.
  • Preventing psychosocial work stress as a consequence of excessive work pressure, bullying, sexual harassment, aggression, and violence.

Safety rules
