Worms, 1st March 2017. AOK’s Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland branch has bestowed its AOK-Mehrwert 2016 health award on the Worms location of Fiege Logistik. The health insurer presented Fiege with the innovation award and its 5000 euros in prize money for the FIEGE Tools database monitoring software which allows an integrated, healthcare-supporting and sustainable implementation of individual components from Occupational Health Management as well as measures derived from performance reviews and employee surveys. 47 companies from the whole of Rhineland Palatinate and the Saarland had vied for the AOK award with innovative ideas dedicated to the health of their employees. 

A jury of experts established the overall winner, the seven regional winners and the winners of the special category as well as of the idea competition from a total of 47 projects. The ideas were rated on the grounds of criteria such as innovation and sustainability in relation to the company. Michael Suden, Managing Director Industry Logistics at Fiege, accepted the accolade. For Suden, Occupational Health Management is vitally important: “We regularly invest in the maintenance and repair of our machinery. But it is just as important to lend our support to our employees. Which is why the 5000 euros in prize money will benefit our employees’ healthcare in full.”

And even within the Worms region, the company is the sole enterprise to have been re-certified with a TÜV Gold accreditation. The location currently has 900 employees working shift for the full range of supply chain services of electric tools by Robert Bosch Power Tools GmbH. This requires good organisation and sustainable Occupational Health Management as well as the continuous adaptation of working conditions. The AOK-Mehrwert 2016 health award is a competition initiated by AOK Rheinland-Pfalz/Saarland which will also be held in 2017. The closing date for interested companies is 31st October 2017.
