Compliance is about acting in accordance with the rules that govern our behaviour. These rules can be externally imposed through laws or regulations, or internally defined through policies, procedures and controls. Acting responsibly, in an ethically correct and lawful manner is just as important to the success of BARTEC as our innovative force, technical performance, quality standards and customer orientation.
Compliance is an essential element to ensure sustainable success of our business, protects employees, managers and the underlying organization from unnecessary risks, and highlights the right way where doubt arises. To identify compliance risks at an early stage BARTEC offers employees and business partners the following contact point firstname.lastname@example.org to report possible compliance infringements. The data is handled with absolute confidentiality; incoming messages are not traced and the senders are not registered.
The Compliance organization of BARTEC operates at three levels: prevention, detection and response. Compliance is responsible for all compliance-relevant activities, helps to ensure that regulations are met, coordinates and conducts trainings and supports the design and implementation of globally binding internal standards. BARTEC installed a group-wide overarching Compliance & Legal Affairs function to integrate Compliance at management level.
Acting responsibly, in an ethically correct and lawful manner is just as important to the success of BARTEC as our innovative force, technical performance, quality standards and customer orientation. The reputation which we have established with a great deal of dedication in relation to our customers, shareholders, business partners and in public can easily be damaged by individual legal violations.
Our common objective is to further strengthen BARTEC’s position as number 1 in the field of industrial safety technology. For that reason all of us are required to behave in a responsible manner and to act in accordance with the law. This Code of Conduct defines the ethical and legal framework within which we act. It sets out the fundamental principles of our conduct within the BARTEC Group and in our relations with business partners and the public. It presents the principles of our corporate actions and is an expression of our corporate values.
Acting responsibly means acting lawfully just as much as it means acting ethically. These principles of conduct constitute the binding benchmark for the actions of all staff. Our principles of conduct do not relieve anyone from their personal responsibility. However, we ask all employees to request advice and help when faced with decisions on ethical or legal issues or if they become aware of forms of conduct in their work environment they consider difficult or concerning. Only transactions that meet this standard are BARTEC business transactions. The Compliance Office acts as the bridge between law, conscience and culture.
Our Code of Conduct serves as guidelines for conduct that complies with and exemplifies the corporate culture of the BARTEC Group. It is based on safety, integrity, respect and sustainability. Above all, the binding principles of conduct serve to protect our employees, managers and the organisations behind them. In everyday business the Code of Conduct is designed to help find the correct and appropriate answers to the ethical and legal questions that arise during strategic considerations and decision-making processes. All members of staff are called upon to apply the principles of conduct every day at the BARTEC Group.

Striving for highest quality and functional safety, guaranteeing optimal health and safety at work and taking into account environmental as well as health and safety regulations in the operational sequences are international standard. Almost all processes within an enterprise have to be aligned with these objectives. More and more frequently the awarding of contracts is made dependent on the requirement that manufacturers provide evidence for a systematic quality management and, moreover, for a work, health and environment protection management for their processes and services, from design to regular efficiency tests.
The BARTEC quality management includes this integrated management as a natural part of entrepreneurial activities. Not only the ideas and activities of individuals are important. All BARTEC employees are individually required to contribute actively to the continuous improvement of BARTEC.
The integrated management manual presents organizational workflows and responsibilities, including the references to the appropriate internal guidelines for all activities and processes relevant to quality, environment and safety. By means of the quality, safety and environment management system described in this manual, the board of management expresses its executive duty of ensuring an adequate and constantly high level of quality, safety and environment protection for the products, processes, systems and services.
'Creative Minds' Inventors Competition
The “Creative Minds” initiative offers students from the region the opportunity to implement innovative ideas in the fields of science, technology, computer science, or mathematics with corporate support. The ideas will be selected by a jury and then implemented by the students within three months. In addition to materials and technical equipment, the companies provide experts, who support the students in realising their projects. Following the implementation phase, the young inventors present their findings, and the jury selects a winner, who will be awarded at a ceremony. For BARTEC, this competition is a great way to support students in the region. In light of the current situation, we feel that promoting this young talent is integral in ensuring the viability of Germany as a centre for technology as well as increasing the attractiveness of the region in terms of employment opportunities.
Girls’ Day aims to inspire female students to pursue technical professions in which only a maximum of 40 percent of women work or study towards. Many young woman can be found in some of these professions. However, there is still a lot of progress to be made in others. With BARTEC, the girls experience a taste of the exciting world of explosion protection. In addition to a factory tour, they get to know the machines and can even gain hands-on experience in the training workshop. Girls’ Day is very popular with students as well as with the participants from BARTEC. Some students even participate in Girls’ Day for several years, thereby gaining interesting insight into the various departments at BARTEC.
Every year, our trainees support the Bad Mergentheim Children’s City. For two weeks, the children live in their own city in which they work, earn “pebbles” as a salary, and make adult decisions. During the summer holiday programme, on the school grounds, children between the ages of 7 and 13 act as citizens of a city and assume various roles. The children can “work” in approximately 50 different professions. BARTEC is proud to support this project because it helps the children to become familiar with the cycle of work, money, and consumption in their own city, test their abilities, and grow at their tasks. And our trainees have fun participating in the various activities with the children.
