Enel Maritza East 3 Celebrated April 28th – the International Safety Day

The International Safety Day was traditionally celebrated by Enel Maritza East 3. The company realized a series of events to put the accent on a number of components of safety culture. The day started with the personal example of the managers, who distributed personal protective equipment and H&S information materials to the personnel coming to work in the morning. The initiative did not differentiate between Enel’s employees and Contractors staff. This is another example of the high appreciation of the human life and health at work by Enel Mariza East 3.


The core of the daily program was the meeting with the Company – Contractors’ H&S inspectors - the people working on daily basis in the power station. The event was open by John Clark – Enel’s Manager for Bulgaria and Quinto Di Ferdinando - Enel Maritza East 3 Thermal Power Plant Director.  The traditional host of the meeting - TPP Health, Safety and Security department - shared with their colleagues selected information about the noise as the factor of the working environment, which exercise a negative effect on the human health as well as preventive use of PPE. The meeting was focused on “near misses” – their importance and the ways of reporting them on TPP site.


During the meeting special guests were H&S managers of Knauf – Bulgaria – Maritza Plant, Mini Maritsa East EAD and AES Galabovo Power plant – three companies which are our good neighbors and partners with whom we have shared our safety culture.


With a minute of silence at the end of the meeting was commemorated the memory of all those killed in industrial labor accidents in the Complex.


International Safety day in TPP included other activities aimed at boosting the general level of information among Enel Employees in Bulgaria about the importance of providing health and safety at work to the employees. A dedicated  address by John Clark, Enel’s manager for Bulgaria was circulated by e-mail to all employees and   attached to the notice board at the power station main gate. It was accompanied by a message on the occasion of this important date by Fulvio Conti – Chief Executive Director of Enel Group.


The Management carried out a general and detailed Safety Walk, during which areas and activities for raising safety awareness and standards were nominated.


During the day a Hard Hat replacement campaign was started; A specially selected safety food menu was offered in the Plant Canteen. The information materials were accessible during the day; the electronic version will additionally be available to the colleagues in the power station after the event though various communication channels (Intranet, information kiosks, e-mail)


Additionally, a practical initiative „5 minutes for health” was conducted for the first time. It included gymnastic at the work place, accompanied by tips for Health and safety in office environment.
