Three outstanding teams receive Health & Safety Award 2022
The first-place project team from Südcampus stood out for its innovative solutions for more occupational safety and their pragmatic implementation. For example, project employees developed a wooden frame that encloses and braces masonry openings and thus minimises the danger of falling parts from the masonry.
In our production hall for timber element construction in Rümlang, there is a lot of material, large machines and many people at the same time in a relatively confined space – a challenge for occupational safety. This challenge is met with daily stand-up meetings, an extraction system for wood dust at every workplace, a specially developed height safety system and clean hall logistics. With these initiatives, the timber construction team achieved second place in the Health & Safety Award.
Many people with different mother tongues and professional backgrounds work together on the large and complex TELT infrastructure project. In addition, there are groups of visitors. They are all trained in occupational safety with a short instruction video in the most common languages. Only those who achieve a certain score in the subsequent quiz are allowed to enter the construction site. With this measure, the team won third place in the Health & Safety Award.
