           was again successfully reviewed in an audit in the area of
           “electrical grids” in the financial year 2019.

           The organisational structure for the area of safety is clearly
           defined. In addition to the central occupational health and
           safety  committee  (ZASA  -  Zentralen  Arbeitsschutz-
           ausschuss)  and  the  local  occupational  health  and  safety
           committees (ASA), preventative safety and security services
           are also commissioned in the KELAG Group. The “time for
           safety” project was launched on the one hand to assess and
           evaluate  the  security  process  and  on  the  other  hand  to
           produce strategic measures. The project team, consisting of
           one member of the Board of Directors, general managers
           and  selected  managers,  meets  and  confers  on  this  on  a
           quarterly basis.

           Ongoing training, annual safety briefings, fire safety drills
           and raising awareness in a targeted manner are the main
           pillars of a safe working environment. These are recorded
           and  analysed  by  the  safety  officer  for  the  prevention  of
           work-related  accidents. The  result  is  a  risk/event  analysis
           and  measures  for  risk  prevention  based  on  this.  In
