IPC receives Award for Equipment and Safety Procedures

On behalf of IPC, Stefán Friðfinnsson, President and CEO, accepted the Reykjavik Carpenters Union´s 2002 Award for Equipment and Safety Procedures on Friday 17th January, 2003. The Award was presented by Finnbjörn Hermansson, Chairman of the Reykjavik Carpenters Union.

Quality equipment and safety procedures have been aims of the Reykjavík Carpenters Uninon over a long period of time. With co-operation between the Association, the Governmental Authorities (IOSHA) and other parties, the safety precautions, quality of equipment and standards of the job sites have greatly improved in recent years. As further incentive, the Association has chosen one company per year that it feels has done the most work during that year towards keeping a high standard of equipment and safety precautions. The first Award as made in 1985 and has been every year since, with the exception of 1997 when the committee did not feel that any particular company qualified.

The Selection Committee has been working hard during recent weeks, inspecting various companies, concentrating on the job sites. The Committee chose IPC and specifically the job site at Klapparhlíð in Mosfellsbær. All facilities such as the coffee room, the toilet facilities and the locker rooms were considered to be excellent examples. The jobsite itself, the use of personal protection and other safety measures were said to be excellent. This points to all IPC job sites being excellent examples with regard to quality of equipment and safety. Further, IPC has taken leading steps in safeguarding the health and training of employees with regard to avoiding accidents or stress related illness.
