First Aid

Important information on physicians, accident reports, list of first aid staff members and locations of first aid kits.

Help is provided!

In occupational safety, the prevention of accidents has the highest priority! This is our self-conception and our goal! Unfortunately there is no 100% safety and accidents happen. Hopefully less and less, but they cannot be prevented completely.

Stay calm!

If something should happen to you, keep calm and call for help if you are in a position to do so. You will be helped quickly and you will be cared for!

If something should happen to your colleague, keep calm and call for help. SEG helpers will be on site quickly and take care of the first aid. You will then decide on a case-by-case basis whether further care in the hospital is necessary and whether an ambulance should be called. As a rule, this is arranged for safety reasons.

The SEG helper(s) write an accident report and make an entry in the association book.
