Ideal Standard International hosts Healthy Workplaces Campaign Good Practice Exchange Event
Ideal Standard International is hosting a Good Practice Exchange Event at its manufacturing plant just outside of Venice, Italy. The main topic on the agenda is occupational safety and health (OSH) as part of age management. In attendance are other official campaign partners who are coming to learn more about the enhanced processes and ergonomic solutions that have been implemented at the plant in order to improve the working environment for employees of different ages.
The event, spread over two days, starts on the first afternoon with introductions from EU-OSHA to explain the campaign, including with a few words from Viktor Kempa from the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) who is also a member of EU-OSHA’s board. Workshop participants then have the chance to hear about other good health and safety practices in presentations given by fellow campaign partners. The first day will conclude with a networking dinner. On the second day participants not only have the opportunity to tour Ideal Standard’s plant to observe good practices first-hand, but will also gain insight into the company’s approach to prevention, rehabilitation and technologies designed to improve workplaces for all ages through a series of short presentations given by company experts.
