Visit to the ‘Golden Helmet’ Good Practice Award winner in Latvia

Event Details

Valsts darba inspekcija


In Latvia, the annual ‘Golden Helmet’ good practice award contest in occupational safety and health (OSH) is taking place soon. This initiative organised by our focal point Valsts darba inspekcija celebrates excellence in workplace safety. The winner of the 2023 edition was SIA ‘Schwenk Latvija’, which earned the top honour for its exemplary efforts in addressing the impact of climate change on working environments.

To provide OSH experts with inspiration for the upcoming competition, our focal point has organised an excursion to SIA ‘Schwenk Latvija’ to share their model and promote the implementation of preventive measures.

Participants will follow a guided tour of the site, which specialises in the production of building materials. It will offer a first-hand view of the operational procedures and safety protocols implemented by the company. Attendees will have the opportunity to observe the practical application of safety measures and innovations to mitigate the effects of climate change at work that have distinguished the company in the contest.

The visit will conclude with a question-and-answer session, providing a platform for participants to engage directly with the experts from the company and the focal point. This activity will be an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and discussions on how these best practices can be adapted and implemented in other organisations.
