SUVA – Sicherheits-Charta

SUVA is the largest accident insurance company in Switzerland.
In collaboration with employers, planners and trade unions, SUVA has launched “SUVA – Sicherheits-Charta”.

It is an alliance for more work safety at dangerous workplaces. The principle that the signatories of the Charta want to enforce at workplaces together is:

STOP in the event of danger / eliminate the danger / continue working

AST Turbo has also signed the SUVA – Sicherheits-Charta, reaffirming our intention to adhere to safety rules within our area of responsibility. This is another clear sign of occupational safety and health protection in our company.
