Every year, thyssenkrupp recognizes select locations throughout the world who go above and beyond when it comes to employee safety through the “we care” award. This award is their form of recognition for outstanding achievements for Occupational Safety and Health practices throughout thyssenkrupp AG. I am pleased to announce that Plant Hamilton has been recognized as one of three plants for our “Near Miss Reporting App”, and will be taking home the 3rd place award for the 2019 “we can” awards!!

I would personally like to congratulate and recognize our OPX and Health and Safety team for their creativity and dedication to keeping our Bilsteiners safe. The way we are able to use modern technologies to reduce our accident count is a monumental step in our industry, and very very important to me. I encourage our Bilsteiners to keep reporting those near misses and continue to keep safety as our #1 priority!

To read more about the “we can award” and to see who the other recipients are, read the official announcement here and watch the video! Join me in congratulating our EHS and OPX teams, but most importantly, every Bilsteiner should give themselves a pat on the back because if it weren’t for you all reporting near misses, this award would not have happened.

Congratulations to all of the award recipients. It is an honor to stand next to various thyssenkrupp plants throughout the world and know that we all take pride in the responsibility of having an impact on the safety and well-being of others.


Signing off,

Fabian Schmahl
