EAA supports the exchange and dissemination of ideas and best practices within the aluminium industry. You will find under this section process-related safety solutions which have already been tried and successfully put into practice at plant level, and can therefore be taken up in other plants as well.
Aluminium producing and processing companies show clear commitment to the welfare of their workers. Whether by involving external expertise or by harnessing the latest information and communication technologies effectively, they do their best to improve the work conditions of their employees.
EAA organises every two years a Safety workshop in Brussels. The objective of these workshops is to exchange information and gather knowledge about best practices and innovative solutions in order to improve the safety performance within the industry and foster the development of networks among experts in Europe.
In this context a Safety Solutions competition, for which member companies were encouraged to present innovative safety measures implemented at plants level, is organised. The entries are discussed at the Safety workshop and participants can vote for the best project.
This initiative enjoyed a great support in 2011 and 24 entries were collected for this years competition. The next safety workshop is planned for 2013.
“The safety solutions we reward need not be very expensive or complex, on the contrary:
The prime objective is to share the best practices in the industry. And clearly, as shown by some of this year’s laureates, simple things can really achieve great results.”
Sandro Starita, EAA’s Director for Environment, Health and Safety
