For Wienerberger, the health and safety of all our employees is a top priority whether they work at a production site or in our offices. In addition to investments in a safe working environment, training and apps, we launched an exciting new initiative from April to June to raise awareness for health and safety: The Wienerberger Health & Safety Challenge. .
The “Cool & Fun” challenge shows just how seriously we take safety at work
The Health & Safety Challenge kicked off on World Day for Safety and Health at Work in late April 2021. The Health & Safety managers in all 29 countries where the Wienerberger Group operates, and their teams were challenged to produce short entertaining videos on a specific aspect of occupational safety that shows how seriously we take this issue. It was no easy task, but the results were impressive.
Teamwork in all countries, business units and specialist areas.
Staff from all business units and a range of specialist areas from 26 countries took part in the Wienerberger Health & Safety Challenge. The internal response was phenomenal. The videos were viewed more than 55,000 times and liked more than 1,600 times.
Award for the best videos from Wienerberger’s H&S Challenge.
Impressed by the outstanding success and exceptional dedication shown in the Health & Safety Challenge, the Wienerberger Managing Board decided to award attractive prizes to the teams who made the top 10 videos. As well as a BBQ for the top three teams, there will be winner’s certificates and personalized Health & Safety jackets.
