PIRELLI PARTNERS EU-OSHA "HEALTHY WORKPLACES" CAMPAIGN

Pirelli has officially adhered as “Partner” to the ”Healthy Workplaces” European campaign, managed by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA)

The Agency has run an annual European Campaign since 2000. With more than 30 countries participating, and some 4 million information materials distributed in all official community languages, the European Campaign has become one of Europe’s largest annual awareness-raising campaigns.

The Campaign faces a different theme each two years and, for 2008 and 2009 the subject is “Risk Assessment”. The two-year risk assessment campaign seeks to promote the idea of a participatory approach to risk assessment. It is essential for the workforce to be consulted and involved in the risk assessment to ensure that hazards are identified not only from principles of knowledge but also by knowledge of working conditions and patterns of adverse effects upon workers.

Pirelli’s engagement within this Campaign range from spreading of a risk prevention “culture” through both internal and external company communication channels, to organizing ad hoc meetings by Pirelli sites with the participation of Representatives form the Agency.Gori_busto_thumb

The spirit with which Pirelli adheres to the Campaign has been clearly expressed by Francesco Gori, CEO and Managing Director Pirelli Tyre:  “Attention to health and safety in the workplace has always been an important part of the culture of Pirelli, in all our factories and offices throughout the world. Knowledge, understanding and above all internal sharing of the concept of risk are key elements that we focus on, with the goal of raising the general awareness of the Company on a theme which, more than a collection of rules to respect, is a matter of culture. It is with this spirit that we adhere to the EU-OSHA campaign.”

PIRELLI CARLISLE: LESSONS IN SAFETY AT WORK

Carlisle HSEA Campus on Health, Safety and the Environment was held in Carlisle (UK) in March to encourage the use of the Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) method.

The campus involved all those who have a role, either directly or indirectly, in HSE, with the objective of developing a company culture oriented towards prevention and one which is also able to improve safety at work, leading to substantial improvements in business results by taking advantage of the best practices in use in the Group’s factories.

During the course, organised by Corporate HSE and HSE Tyre Europe with the support of HSE management in the UK, instructors, technicians and assistants learned to recognise and promote the activity that envisages safer conduct at work as a normal working method.
When faced with risky methods of work, the leaders explained the possible consequences of such repeated conduct over time and singled out the actions with which to modify them.  

Technicians from the Carlisle, Milan and Slatina (Rumania) factories took part in the HSE Campus. The leader of the course was the HSE manager of the factory in Izmit, Turkey.
