Preventive healthcare and occupational safety
Volkswagen’s holistic healthcare management system extends beyond traditional preventive healthcare and occupational safety. It also covers work organization, workstation design, behavioral ergonomics, psychosocial aspects, rehabilitation and reintegration into working life as well as programs for preventing widespread diseases.
To maintain and improve employees’ health, performance and fitness levels, a free and comprehensive voluntary screening, the Check-up, is provided for all employees at almost all production sites.
Another important area for action at the Volkswagen Group is the ergonomic quality of the workstations. The Company is thus highly committed to continuously improving ergonomics along the entire production chain and in all work processes. To this end, we collaborate with scientific partners to combine state-of-the-art ergonomic workstations with innovative work processes.
