At all times the quality of the products and resulting satisfaction of customers and suppliers serve as a basis for the work carried out by employees. Up to now and also in future, the management and all employees unconditionally recognise this approach. The requirements defined by standards are implemented and integrated process management systems systematically inspect, monitor and maintain and further develop the quality of the products and services. Quality is not merely a snapshot for us, but is a continuous challenge which our qualified employees and experts rise to every day.
This has resulted in the certification of all the business areas, from the production of precious metal semi‑finished products, recycling of waste materials including precious metals, and trading of precious metals according to the internationally recognised quality management standard DIN EN ISO 9001 in order to ensure the highest quality standard and comprehensive expertise. The dental area of the Bauer-Walser AG is also certified acc. to DIN EN ISO 13485 and Annex II of the EU directive 93/42/EEC.
All the products of Bauer-Walser AG are inspected and analysed in our own testing laboratory according to various criteria – your guarantee for quality control and tested reliability.
Depending on the respective range of products and specific production conditions, all companies have an impact on the environment in different ways. Bauer-Walser AG as a modern company in the field of precious metals is aware of this responsibility and implements environmental laws in order to realise definite measures to limit the spread of harmful substances and use resources in a sustainable manner. Our process techniques allow us to have an efficient and economic process with precious metals in compliance with the environmental protection regulations. The Bauer-Walser AG also takes on responsibility with regard to the conservation of the natural resources of our planet.
As environmental protection always revolves around the conservation of resources and the minimisation of harmful substances, this already starts with the smallest of details. In this respect, the aim of Bauer-Walser AG is to adequately implement these principles with all their complexity in the daily work of the company. This is because an environmentally friendly company policy represents a contribution to securing the future of the environment and companies. An example here is the photovoltaic system with its 355 solar modules which has a nominal output of 82.5 KWp. In addition, thermal recovery uses the heat generated by incineration furnaces and heat generated by the compressed air system to heat up heating and process water. This is then directed into the cooling water circuit together with the heat of all furnaces where with the aid of a water heat pump the temperature for the heating water is generated. Apart from that, we consider that environmental protection also includes offering employees a company-sponsored bicycle. Up to now 33 employees have taken advantage of this leasing contract offer and as a result go to work more often by bicycle than by car which is a valuable contribution towards environmental protection.
As a business enterprise Bauer-Walser AG is responsible for the safety and health of its employees and must protect them effectively against dangers and health hazards. The basis for a functioning employment system is the establishment and maintenance of safe working conditions which observe human rights. Efficient worker protection and effective accident prevention are particularly important for this, especially with regard to the challenges of the current digital transformation resulting in an ever quicker and more demanding working world. Bauer-Walser AG is obliged to assess dangers to health at the workplace and to decide on necessary protective measures. The efficient integration of occupational and health protection in the structures and procedures enables the company to achieve a functioning industrial safety organisation. The company instructs the employees on safety and health protection at the workplace and takes precautions in particularly dangerous working areas and workplaces and is responsible for the technical safety of devices, products and systems which are made available on the market.
