Occupational safety & health protection

Acting socially responsibly - for all people

We live the multifaceted social aspects. It is always about people - our employees, our customers, our neighbours and the people in our society.

Every accident is one too many. I help to ensure that everyone can work safely and come home healthy.

Timo Eilhardt / Head of Construction Management

Safe working and health protection

Occupational safety and health protection are an integral part of our business activities. We promote the health of our employees with occupational health management measures, since this – alongside a healthy organisation – is a matter close to our hearts.

Our occupational safety management system is based on the principle of continuous improvement and is a cornerstone of the company’s success. Our goal is a work environment that protects the health and safety of everyone associated with our business, whether it's our own employees or one of our partner companies.

Working at OGE - safe, meaningful and future-oriented

At OGE, teams of generalists and experts from various specialist departments work towards a shared goal: to ensure sustainable gas transmission in the areas we supply. In order to support our staff as best we can in their efforts, we create not only safe, progressive working conditions, but also actively involve our employees in the development of the company and their work environment: ideas management, innovation management and, of course, training and further education ensure that OGE is always evolving and securely positioned for the future.

OGE supports the individual balance

A variety of working time models with different degrees of flexibility and workloads help our employees to find their own individual balance between professional and personal life.

Social commitment, non-discrimination, data protection, party-political neutrality - all these topics show the many facets of the social dimension.

Social commitment

We not only have a responsibility for our core business, but also for the society in which we are located and active. Therefore, we are committed to various social issues. We are an active network partner to achieve the climate and environmental goals at our main site in Essen. As a company and with the commitment of our workforce, we also support charitable projects throughout Germany.

Neutral and independent

As a regulated transmission system operator, we are party-politically neutral. In order to create transparency about our interest representation, we have been registered in the EU Transparency Register for several years and, since the end of February 2022, also in the new Lobby Register for interest representation vis-à-vis the German Bundestag and the Federal Government.

Transparent flow of information

We treat all our our customers equally. That also means that all customers and participants in the gas market enjoy the same, non-discriminatory access to our information. For this purpose, we offer them a transparent insight and overview of our gas transmission network.

“From the first day to the final exam: I am there for my apprentices.”

Jonas Fauser / Training Manager,
