“Ocjo”: RadiciGroup puts safety on stage
As part of the safety awareness training for RadiciGroup employees, a special event was held to develop a safety culture at work, as well as in private life. This morning the show “Ocjo…La sicurezza č di scena” [Watch out… Safety is on stage] was performed at Campus Educa (one of the Group’s major partners on safety training matters). The format of the production was created about ten years ago by Flavio Frigč – a disabled worker – and Bruzio Bisignano – an accident prevention instructor – to raise the awareness of students and workers on accident prevention.
“Ocjo…La sicurezza č di scena” is a travelling show performed mainly at schools and factories, with the goal of increasing awareness of safety issues, both in the workplace and in everyday life.
“In May 2016, we re-launched the ‘RadiciGroup for Safety’ campaign, consisting of various safety training courses attended by 330 employees,” said Angelo Radici, president of RadiciGroup. “In little more than a year, managers and supervisors at the Group’s Italian sites participated in a total of almost 8,000 hours of activities in class and in the field. I am convinced that, if we cascade training to all employee levels, by working together on the ‘roots’ of safety culture, continuous further improvement is possible.”
RadiciGroup has scheduled six performances of “Ocjo...La sicurezza č di scena”, on different days and at different times, so as to allow the employees at the various Italian production sites (including Noyfil in Stabio, Switzerland) to choose the option that best fits into their work schedules. The Group companies involved are engaged in the production of chemicals, plastics and synthetic fibres.
Today’s performance was attended by Group employees and top management, in addition to representatives of various public institutions, trade unions and the school system, who got a close-up look at RadiciGroup’s daily commitment to safety.
“Ocjo” is an innovative training format, which conveys the message that safety is a key factor in the quality of life and work. “Translating concepts into emotions” is a new mode of safety training and the intent of the show is to generate a gut reaction from the spectators, so they come to the realization that safety knows no bounds of time, seasons or schedules: safety is an asset to build together and preserve forever.
