Health and safety first
The Vetropack Group continuously invests in the workplace health and safety, as well as in raising awareness of the importance of following safety rules and using personal protective equipment. In addition to promoting the slogan "I am more important than the production" and the nine golden safety rules, one of the activities carried out to this end is the Safety Day, a one-day event dedicated to promoting health and safety at work with educational and entertaining activities, which took place for the first time at Vetropack Straža on May 11th.
One of the most interesting activities was a car accident simulator, which allowed our employees to better understand the danger of not using seatbelts while driving. We also organised a simulation of the state under the influence of intoxicants to highlight the importance of making the right decisions at work.
The event also focused on the presentation of the LOTO procedure Lockout/Tagout. Our employees are trained in the proper locking and tagging of equipment to prevent injuries when working with heavy machinery.
Mandatory work clothing and personal protective equipment were also presented. The safety of our employees is the foundation of our business practices and we are proud on providing the highest level of protection during work activities.
We also offered the opportunity to check blood pressure, blood sugar and eyesight, and provided useful advice on the importance of exercise and a balanced diet. The health of our employees is a priority for us, and this event gave them the opportunity to take an individual approach to their health.
We would like to thank all our employees who made this event so successful and useful. Their support and participation are essential in building a culture of safety in our company.
Safety is our shared responsibility and we will continue to strive to make every day safe and healthy for all of us.
