Health & Safety Award 2021 – these are the winners
Over the past few weeks, Implenia employees have cast their votes for one of the five nominated teams in an internal voting process. The winners of the Health & Safety Awards 2021 have now been announced. First place went to Team DüdingenPlus from Switzerland, followed by Team Noise Protection Walls from Germany. Team CERN from France came in third.
The "Golden Helmet" goes again this year to successful measures and initiatives for the prevention of accidents and the general promotion of occupational safety.
The award was presented at the virtual Implenia Extended Leadership Forum (IELF). CEO André Wyss introduced the event by saying: "Safety must be a topic for each and every one of us; it is a key element for success on our construction sites. Keeping our colleagues save is a top priority for all of us." The award, he said, is not just about picking a winner, but rather about keeping the conversation about health and safety alive.
Felix Akeret, Global Safety Head, then symbolically presented the award to the representative of the first-placed team, Sercan Sarikayali, Project Manager of DüdingenPlus. He said: “I was impressed by the project in many ways: the accessible safety information in the stairwells, the concept including digital safety rounds with iPads, the traffic concept in cooperation with the municipality and the bilingual management of the construction site are really outstanding.”
Fourth and fifth place went to Team Metro Lyon from France and Team E16 from Norway.
