Outstanding commitment to a safe workplace

13.07.2017 - Company / Mills

The professional association of raw materials and the chemicals industry “Berufsgenossenschaft Rohstoffe und chemische Industrie” or BG RCI awarded the most generously endowed work safety prize in Germany in May 2017. Timo Wurster, employee at the MM Karton mill in Baiersbronn, was honoured in the Safety Technology category.

High safety standards continuously put to the test 
Health and safety at the work place are a basic prerequisite for us, and we have a lasting commitment to the issue. Our idea of work safety is the best possible “prevention” to minimise the risk of accidents. With ongoing measures like training and evaluations, we optimise our safety standards continuously. Personal commitment and suggestions by our employees for improving processes, making routes safer, or eliminating potential causes of accidents, are particularly valuable. One such safety measure was contributed by Timo Wurster, work safety specialist and fire safety officer at the MM Karton Baiersbronn mill.

Outstanding idea for more safety
On the grounds of our cartonboard mill in Baiersbronn, pulp bales and cartonboard rolls are transported with bale clamp forklifts. With commonly used bale clamps, however, it is possible for cartonboard rolls to slip out of place or off the clamp altogether. To eliminate this hazard, Timo Wurster has developed a special attachment that allows bales and roles to be transported safely, without time-consuming refitting or changing forklifts.

Work safety “Oscar”
His commitment was now honoured with the most generously endowed work safety prize in Germany, awarded by the BG RCI: Timo Wurster won the prize for the Safety Technology category. For 20 years, the prize has been awarded on the best ideas for a safer workplace in seven different categories. Across Germany, around 600 people with about 230 contributions had participated in the 2017 competition. The awards ceremony was held on 5 May 2017 in Frankfurt’s Alte Oper.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Wurster. We are glad to have such innovative and committed individuals at MM Karton, who contribute their ideas for the general benefit of the company but also of the industry and society at large.
