MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA received the IPLOCA Health & Safety Award 2016

MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA was honored with the 2016 IPLOCA Health & Safety Award, sponsored by Chevron for a so called jump scale, that indicates which forces affect the human body even when jumping from a low height. The scale shall strengthen the safety awareness of the user: e.g. a man weighing 80 kg jumps from 40 cm height to the floor, the weight force is about four times of his own body weight – thus 304 kg. During the last STREICHER winter training for work safety, the jump scale was already presented to the employees and they also had the possibility to test it during the event. The objective is to point out the risks and possible physical effects of jumps and to avoid them in daily routine. In mid-September, IPLOCA HSE Committee Chairman Bruno Maerten (l.) and IPLOCA President Atul Punj (r.) presented the price to Giovanni Muriana (m.), Managing Director of MAX STREICHER S.p.A. and representative of the mother company, during the annual convention of IPLOCA in Paris.
