Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.

Healthy lives and well-being are central topics in the manufacture as well as the use of LANXESS’  products. The occupational health management is based on raising all employees’ awareness of their own health and motivating them to act on their own initiative and adopt healthy behaviors in their professional and private lives. The PTSE Group function  defines requirements and govern responsibilities for health protection, environmental protection, handling of chemicals, plant safety and safety precautions in the workplace and as regards our products.

 

LANXESS products also play a part in preventing diseases. Thanks to medical achievements, we live longer now than ever before. Therapies have been significantly improved and some diseases have been almost eliminated. Major progress has also been made in recent years in the field of malaria, a tropical infection. The transmission rate was reduced by a third and the mortality rate by more than half. And yet the challenges remain great. Diseases such as malaria and yellow fever are transmitted by mosquitoes - and a LANXESS product protects against dangerous stings. The active ingredient Saltidin® effectively keeps the tropical bloodsuckers away and is therefore recommended by the World Health Organization of the United Nations (WHO) for the prevention of malaria, dengue and chikungunya.
