In order to ensure a high level of occupational safety, risk assessments regularly take place with regards to workplaces and new or changed processes. The company’s employees also receive regular training on occupational health and safety.
In addition, HUGO BOSS has declared a target of continually improving the physical and mental health of its employees. Corporate health management is embedded in the organization at many locations.

Measures in challenging times
The well-being and protection of our employees and partners is our top priority, whatever the circumstances. From the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we established an interdisciplinary crisis team. In order to safely guide the staff through this challenging time, our employees were informed quickly and clearly about developments and corresponding measures were implemented at a global level. These included, among others:
- Introduction of a comprehensive approach to hygiene
> Limiting the number of people in business premises
> Measures relating to social distancing and ventilation
> Provision of hand-disinfection dispensers, wipes and face masks
- Change from work on campus to remote work, as well as the introduction of shift models, where possible
- Offering COVID-19-specific training
- Regular information for employees via email, newsletter, guidelines and video messages
HUGO BOSS was awarded a Stevie® Award for its responsible and preemptive approach in these challenging times – especially with regards to its own employees. Discover more.
Integration of processes for analyzing work-related injuries and illnesses
Since 2022, the meetings of the Occupational Safety Committee have been held jointly with the divisions for the first time in a workshop format to meet the different requirements of the Corporate, Retail and Logistics target groups. In addition to evaluating changes in the divisions on occupational safety, the focus is on the occupational accidents that have occurred in the individual divisions. This involves analyzing the occupational accidents and working out whether there are any causes of accidents that occur more frequently in the respective areas. If this is the case, measures are derived using various methods (e.g. STOP principle) to eliminate the causes of accidents in the future.
