The writing instrument specialist uma Schreibgeräte from Fischerbach in the Black Forest takes its responsibility towards its employees and customers very seriously. The company has been certified with the B.A.D. – COVID-19-Ready seal, an occupational safety standard that guarantees the safe continuation of daily work even in times of the current pandemic.

As a result of the corona pandemic which affects both social and economic life in equal measure, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has imposed special occupational health and safety measures on companies. The aim of these measures is to interrupt chains of infection, safeguard the health of employees and restore economic activities. The responsibility for implementing necessary infection protection measures lies with the employer. However, it also requires the conscientious support of each individual employee to follow these measures in order to maintain a safe working environment.

“In cooperation with specialists for occupational health and safety and occupational medicine, B.A.D., a catalogue of measures was drawn up in a risk assessment which ensured the safe continuation of daily work at uma at a very early stage of the pandemic. Further measures were taken to ensure that the continuation of business operations and production did not have to be discontinued at any time,” explains uma’s Managing Director Alexander Ullmann. “With the COVID-19-Ready seal, we ensure that our business partners can continue to enjoy the uma service they are accustomed to. The uma team is there for its customers in the office and production, safe and sound”, confirms Ullmann. www.uma-pen.com
