Operational safety

The safety of our employees, neighbours and the environment takes top priority

Zellstoff Rosenthal is one of the most modern pulp mills in Europe. Pulp production requires very complex plant operation. It consists of a large number of process operations and technical facilities using various chemicals, some of which are classified as hazardous.

The safety of our employees, neighbours and the environment is our number one priority. We set high standards on occupational safety, production safety, environmental protection, and accident prevention. We are continuously investing in future-oriented, environmentally sound plant and production facilities as well as the professional qualification of our employees in order to maintain and further improve the reliability of the mill.

We do everything we can to avoid a breakdown, but we also need to be prepared for it. Within the framework of an operational emergency system, the handling of various faults is regularly tested.

For the neighbors of our mill, we have compiled this brochure. It contains instructions on how emergencies are detected and how to behave properly in such a situation. Here you will also find contact persons who can contact you if you have any questions.

Zellstoff Rosenthal is part of the Mercer-wide safety program ‘Road to Zero’. All employees are involved in this program. Together, we continually check and optimize processes with regard to their security. Every employee has the right to a safe workplace, but at the same time everyone at Mercer shares responsibility for the safety of the company.

We rely on frequent security training as well as proactive cooperation with the authorities and external emergency services regarding prevention and emergency response. Zellstoff Rosenthal has its own factory fire brigade, which is equipped and trained for emergency situations.

We voluntarily audit our environmental and quality management annually using an external auditor.
