HSE – a central piece of our way of working

Health and safety of everyone who works with our products or others that are nearby, is extremely important to us. Our company philosophy aims on protecting our employees and all persons in the near environment.  That means not exposing them to unnecessary risks and dangerous situations and protect them from accidents, that’s why a continuous improvement process and a constant analysis of possible risks and the necessary actions is extremely essential.

Even to the environment is given a great deal of importance in our company. We use state-of-the-art power drive technologies and develop environmentally friendly transport solutions. Health, safety and environmental protection are among the most important values of our company and the whole LCS Group. This is not just shown in our products and solutions, but in the relation to our customers and our employees.

Safety rates high at GANTNER

Apart from the technical aspects, safe use always comes to the fore when designing new products. It is therefore self-evident that at GANTNER, we continually endeavor to incorporate improved safety criteria in our equipment. Due to our interest in comprehensive safety we participate in various bodies such as committees of the Austrian standards organization, the O.I.T.A.F. (international organization for transport by rope) and are in close contact to public bodies such as TÜV, the Health and Safety Executive or accident insurance organizations. The result is that GANTNER winches are among the safest around the world.

We are OHSAS 18001:2007 certified.

Environmental awareness

During the innovation and production processes the environment is always in our mind. Rope transportation systems generally contribute fundamentally to an environmentally friendly handling of heavy loads (e.g. by means of material ropeways). Many of our winches are available with electro-hydraulic motors or with state-of-the-art diesel engines with the lowest possible emissions.

We are ISO 14001:2015 certified.
