Wisetek Celebrates Environmental, Health and Safety Week
19th September: Wisetek recently organised and celebrated its Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) week from 14th-16th September. Wisetek organised this latest Corporate Sustainable Initiative to promote the dual causes of safety and environmental awareness. The company has previously celebrated its annual Environmental Awareness Week to encourage employees to take part in environmental activities, and extended the theme of the annual event to include health and safety, given its importance to the work that Wisetek does every day.
The initiative was organised by Wisetek’s internal EHS team, and staff members across Wisetek sites took part. Wisetek created a variety of games and activities for staff including a staff quiz, crazy golf, basketball, penalty shoot outs and cornhole. All of the equipment for the games was handmade by the Wisetek team and created using 100% recycled material.
Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek said: “I would like to thank all of our employees who took part in this year’s EHS week. Environmental Awareness and Sustainability have always been huge areas of focus for us, given that they are at the heart of everything we do. However, this year we felt it was also important to focus on health and safety, as this is another issue which is an essential aspect of our operations and which is a core value for the company”. I would particularly like to thank our EHS team, for all of their hard work in helping to organise this fantastic initiative”.
Chris O’Neill, International Quality and Compliance Manager with Wisetek, said: “It was fantastic to see such a strong, positive response to EHS week this year from all across the Wisetek team. These kinds of initiatives, which celebrate a company’s core values but which do so in a way that employees can enjoy, are important to recognise and celebrate. I look forward to seeing some of the creative and fun ways we can celebrate EHS week in the future.”
