Due to habitual or casual behaviour resulting in many accidents, labour’s protection discipline was the main focus at this year’s annual event.
“We want everyone to return home to their families in good health at the end of each day,” said Stefan Messer, Owner and CEO of Messer Group GmbH.
“Each of us ought to always remember that there are risks of accidents. Whether it’s in the office or during gas filling operations. It is important always to have your wits about you and to have a disciplined approach to work.”
Messer has been raising employee awareness of health, safety, environmental protection and quality assurance through its annual health and safety day since 2013.
Messer, operational in the Americas since March, has six healthcare centers (with around 1,500 employees, including nurses and medical staff) in Colombia which, among other services, provides special medical gases for the treatment of diseases for children and infants.
