For a whole week, family run industrial gas company Messer will hold a worldwide safety week at all of its locations.

During the week, Messer employees will be sensitised to the topic of operational discipline during pandemic times.

For Messer, operations will include the UV-C disinfection of gas cylinders that were previously used in hospital operation, as well as further hygiene rules, in particular to maintain the filling of urgently needed medical gas cylinders. 

“The safety and health of employees is an integral part of Messer’s corporate values,” the company said in a statement.

In addition to the safety week, local campaigns will be held to appeal to the 11,000 employees to comply with the pandemic rules and act responsibily.
