Taking responsibility for people

Support us in the occupational and emergency medical care and assistance of BASF employees.

Health Management forms part of our sustainable business management approach. Our team in the Occupational Medical and Health Protection Department has been supporting employees and management executives in all their medical issues since 1866.

Our health care provision ranges from occupational medical care through emergency medical provision to health promotion. To deliver this we make best use of the diverse areas of expertise in our global network of over 40 doctors and approximately 150 employees. We set the globally applicable occupational medical standards for the BASF Group, help to establish them and then audit compliance to them.

We are looking for committed employees who enjoy teamwork and who have specialist expertise and qualifications in the following areas:

  • Doctors with various specializations such as occupational medicine, internal medicine, general practice medicine, and human toxicology
  • Doctors in training for occupational medicine, internal medicine, and general practice medicine
  • Paramedics
  • Nurses/orderlies

Employees with the following professions are also working with us:

  • Graduate economist (BA)
  • Graduate biochemist
  • Graduate chemist
  • Graduate medical IT expert
  • Graduate nurse (FH)
  • Commercial employee
  • Medical-technical assistant
  • X-ray technical employee

If you want to strengthen our team, you have several years of clinical experience and are already a specialist. Experience in occupational medicine is an advantage , but you can also acquire this in continuing education whilst working with us as a doctor

A PhD in medicine is desirable.

We expect you to have a very good knowledge of English and IT, show personal commitment and be a genuine team player. You also have good interpersonal skills and a friendly attitude towards your clients.

You are accustomed to communicating with your patients in German and English, and within an international specialist medical team.

We offer BASF employees high-quality, comprehensive occupational medical provision delivered by our team through its expertise and commitment. To this end we also work with doctors in private practice, hospitals and external medical service providers. Our medical activities include:

  • Occupational medical care
  • Advice relating to alcohol and drug problems, psychological crises, nutritional and general medical issues.
  • Occupational illnesses and diseases

Your range of responsibilities is very varied and covers general medical and specialist activities through to emergency medical provision.

You will conduct occupational medical examinations, plant/factory inspections, and preventive health checks. You will advise management executives and implement various health promotion measures. You will administer acute and emergency medical treatment in the BASF clinic and during emergencies.

Performing audits at other BASF sites and the compilation of globally applicable occupational medical standards also form part of your challenging area of responsibility.

You will have a demanding area of responsibility and will receive an "on the job" introduction.

As a four times winner of the "German Corporate Health Prize" we set standards in integrated health care management and offer you the best framework conditions for your medical work.

As additional qualifications you can acquire recognition as an occupational health doctor and train to become a specialist in general practice and internal medicine.

The so-called lifestyle illnesses are global focus points of BASF's corporate health care management. Another challenge is the increasing average age of the workforce. BASF's corporate health care management contributes to the success of the company through its successful prevention work, medical advice, and treatment for the well-being of employees.

The globally applicable "Occupational Medical and Health Protection" directive forms the basis of our actions. To measure our performance and capability in this regard, we use our in-house developed Health Performance Index (HPI) with its 5 Indicators.
