Athens, 20 October 2022
For the sixth consecutive year, Cenergy Holdings, within the framework of the “Safety Day”, has organized a joint event in all its companies’ production plants in Greece and Romania on Tuesday, October 18, 2022. Special emphasis is placed on the culture of safety at Hellenic Cables and Corinth Pipeworks, the cable, and steel pipe segments of Cenergy Holdings, respectfully. The purpose of “Safety Day” is to inform employees about targeted issues regarding health and safety and reward their best proposals for improvement in this area. Hellenic Cables started this initiative, aiming to highlight the importance of safety in the workplace, in 2017, and Corinth Pipeworks joined the initiative for the first time this year.
Mr. Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Cenergy Holdings and Hellenic Cables, stated: “We believe that based on our shared principles, there is no success, even in business and production terms, if we do not manage to achieve zero accidents in the workplace. Anything else is not acceptable.
Cenergy Holdings’ management recognizes the need and thus, proceeded, at the end of 2021 and continued throughout 2022, in evaluating its production plants and training its executives through DuPont Sustainable Solutions, the world’s pioneer company in establishing a safety culture. Extensive training programs and further actions were carried out with executives, and administration officers aiming to consolidate a culture of safety in workplace.
Creating a safety culture is a top priority for Cenergy Holdings companies to minimize risks. In this direction, several initiatives have been developed and are operating effectively in the cable production plants in Corinth, Thebes, Oinofyta, and Bucharest in Romania, as well as in the steel pipe plant in Thisvi. Some examples are the Golden Rules of Safety, the Occupational Risk Assessment Study, locking-unlocking equipment systems (LOTO), systems for protection from rotating parts (Zero Access) and procedures for safe workplace behavior.
Mr. Ilias Bekiros, CEO of Corinth Pipeworks, emphasized: “Health and Safety remain our top and absolute priority! Our people are the driving force behind our operations. We firmly continue to invest in their training, emphasizing safety at work and the proper implementation of emergency planning. Prevention is at the very essence of our strategy!”
This successful strategic positioning allows us to be ready for any circumstance that may arise. We continue to operate responsibly and respectfully, firmly committed to continuously improving our performance.
