New records in the apprenticeshop - 800 days without any accident!

800 reasons to celebrate – our 80 apprentices have been working for more than 800 days without any accident – a record result but there is also another!

800 days without any accident in the apprenticeshop are an occasion for joy throughout the company because the safety of our employees is our priority. At the same time, we are proud of our great apprentices, who are well trained in order to work without any risk in the apprentice workshop as well in diverse workplaces in the company.

The measures taken to achieve this important goal include, among other things, the safety siren in the apprenticeshop, which is ringing in the weekly meeting where current safety issues are discussed, as well as our Safety-RVVS (Rotax-improvement-suggestion-system), where new ideas are constantly submitted and realized in order to increase the safety at work and in which our apprentices are participating significantly.

Because of this reason, the apprentices had a powerful breakfast together with the management on Tuesday, 17th July 2018 at 9.30 am, so that they are strengthened for next 800 days coming. We thanked the apprentices for their engagement and effort and congratulated them for their premiere win at this year’s Businessrun in Wels on 8th June 2018.

Out of the 84 Rotax participants, 40 apprentices started at the Businessrun and took the 1st place at the 1st apprentice-challenge; one of the apprentices, Florian Lorenz, even won the 1st price, a brand new Renault Clio!

DI Thomas Uhr, General Manager BRP-Rotax GmbH & Co KG and Vice-President Powertrain BRP and R&D/Operations Lynx was very proud of our apprentices and was happy about 800 days without any accident. Also, he congratulated them on the great winning in the apprentice challenge at the Welser Businessrun.
