Occupational health and safety

We attach great importance to the health and safety of our customers. This is why we also believe that safety in orthopaedic workshops is crucial. O&P professionals are exposed to many different types of risks in the course of their daily work. Ottobock offers a variety of solutions to minimise such risks. In future, we’ll be placing an even stronger focus on occupational health and safety.


We continuously review the environmental impact of materials. In addition, we take a systematic approach to identifying alternatives that use fewer resources and are more environmentally friendly. Thanks to the launch of our GreenLine range, we’re now able to offer customers a new generation of materials that combines occupational safety with functionality to best effect.

GreenLine materials

We developed our GreenLine range to help our customers maximise safety in the workplace. GreenLine materials are more planet-friendly than conventional products and less damaging to the health of the O&P professionals who process them.


Personal protective equipment

Ottobock offers protective equipment for substances that are deemed dangerous by the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances (GefStoffV). Our PPE includes products to protect the hands, face, eyes, respiratory tract and other parts of the body.


Safety in the workplace

Having the right workshop equipment is indispensable if you want to fabricate orthopaedic products and protect your employees against work-related illnesses and accidents.


Hygiene in orthopaedics businesses

Compliance with proper hygiene procedures is crucial in the healthcare sector. The global COVID-19 outbreak has shown us once again how important preventive measures are for stopping the spread of disease and protecting employees and patients in orthopaedics businesses.
