Safety panels decorated with photos of workers’ families

Watch the movie og this innovation.

In Chile, where family is a particularly strong value, middle management came up with the idea of personalising prevention panels with messages and photos of the workers’ children and spouses, and displaying them directly at their work station and in the areas they pass through most frequently during their working day.

This new way of getting prevention messages across was set up in June 2010. It has proved to be very effective, with 1,000 working days without any accidents as of 16 January 2013. Other positive effects were also noted: better use and better maintenance of tools and personal protective equipment (PPE) and a more friendly, cooperative working environment. The innovation is now being rolled out on all the company’s sites.
