European Good Practice Awards 2010-2011 Jul 12, 2011

The Hungarian Presidency of the European Union hosted the 10 th European Good Practice Awards ceremony. The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) recognised and rewarded the outstanding contribution to safe maintenance made by eight organisations and companies from across Europe. Part of EU-OSHA’s Healthy Workplaces Campaign on Safe Maintenance, the awards were presented in Budapest on 28th April 2011 on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

Entries were received from organisations of all sized, and from a wide variety of industrial sectors, keen to demonstrate and share their good practice examples. The new booklet published at the same time presents case studies on good practices of the eight award winners and the fifteen commended organizations.

Jukka Takala, Director of EU-OSHA, praised the high quality of the entries: “Our network of focal points in participating Member States and Turkey received hundreds of good practice examples, with the very best national examples taken forward to the European level Good Practice Awards. The eight winners and fifteen commended companies all demonstrate the crucial role regular maintenance plays in eliminating workplace hazards and managing risks, underlining the key messages of the Healthy Workplaces Campaign.”

General Motors Powertrain - Magyarország Kft. was also commended. The manufacture of motor vehicles has presented cost-efficient methods for general use in the company to regulate such operations based on risk assessment and through the training of employees.
