Founded in 2001, INNOTECH® Arbeitsschutz is a family-owned company with headquarters in Kirchham and branch offices in Germany and Switzerland. From the onset, the company has placed great worth on innovative, customised solutions. With a dedicated research and development team, INNOTECH® soon set international standards in the area of occupational safety. Ever since, it has driven forward the further development of innovative products. Today INNOTECH is one of the largest manufacturers in Europe which has specialised exclusively in the production of safety systems, with 88% from its own manufacture, in order to guarantee maximum quality.
According to various statistics, several hundred people have an accident on roofs every year. Accidents that could have been prevented with appropriate safety equipment and the diligent installation of high-quality fall protection systems. In the area of worker protection, INNOTECH® is the joint author of planning documents and is a joint founder of the international working group D.A.CH.S.,which consists of experts from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and South Tyrol, and whose aim is to create cross-border regulations for fall protection systems.
Ensuring safe working means complying with technical, organisational and also personal prerequisites when working.
In Austria and Germany, specific government departments are responsible for worker protection and various professional organisations are responsible for the control of appropriate safety when working on roofs. Under the laws relating to the coordination of construction work, the employer or the customer/person in charge of construction is obliged to comply with the legal provisions for worker protection (and here in particular the regulation relating to worker protection). If a work accident occurs on a roof, and no appropriate advance measures related to the worker protection guidelines were taken, then the employer is liable.
So that all legal, moral and ethical requirements can be complied with, INNOTECH believes that its mission is to pass on its knowledge to customers, partners and employees in many ways such as detailed training.
In this way, the high level of expertise of the current 145 employees (with 10 working in research and development, 14 on special solutions for worker protection and another 30 in distribution) guarantees optimum customer support in all phases of a project.
