Metso has been recognized with two awards for its proactive and dedicated efforts in occupational safety. One of the awards was presented to Metso for its outstanding management in preventive security by the National Safety Council of Chile, and the other one to Manuel Guzman, Manager, Health and Safety at Metso Chile, who received the Management Award for Prevention presented by the Institute of Occupational Safety.

"We have been impressed by the work of Metso's Joint Safety Committees, and we value the proactive processes they have developed to enhance safety - processes for which they have won various awards and recognitions," says Guillermo Gacitúa, President of the National Safety Council of Chile.

Metso is continuously looking for new innovative ways to enhance occupational safety and well-being at work. One of the most important initiatives implemented by Metso's Pacific Rim market area in 2016 was the immersed virtual reality training system, where risk situations can be trained for in a 3D factory environment.

"For us it is an honor to receive these recognitions. We put an emphasis on generating new initiatives and engaging our employees, families and children to help them to recognize unsafe situations. Constantly innovating so that every employee is always aware of the importance of safety has always been one of our important focus areas," explains Aldo Cermenati, SVP, Pacific Rim market area, Metso.
