New campaign for more safety


The start of 2021 is all about occupational safety. The new campaign has been rolled out at all TRIMET sites under the slogan “Remember, it’s your life!”. Posters on the plant gates and notices on information monitors in the buildings draw attention to correct conduct in the workplace. “We want to protect our employees from workplace hazards and provide a safe environment. When it comes to everyday hand movements and work tasks, we often become careless. We want to pick up on this idea in the new campaign and make our workforce aware of this,” said Dr. Andreas Lützerath, member of the Executive Board of TRIMET Aluminium SE.

The campaign revolves around examples from the everyday work routine. Attention is drawn to correct conduct before starting a repair, using the correct tools and correctly dismounting from a forklift. The initiative was developed and implemented in collaboration with the Works Council and the Occupational Safety and Health Management departments.

In addition to the current occupational safety campaign, the prevention strategy “VISION ZERO. Zero accidents – healthy work!” in cooperation with the Raw Materials and Chemical Industry Employers’ Liability Insurance Association (BG RCI), is still running. A comprehensive range of workshops and seminars offered by the Health Management team rounds off the topic of occupational safety.
