Accident-free production of industrial gases at Messer

The industrial gas specialist Messer receives European safety awards.

The Messer Group was presented with three awards for accident-free work at this year’s European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) conference in Düsseldorf. A Czech and a Bosnian subsidiary of the industrial gas specialist each received a silver EIGA award for ten years of accident-free work. Both are gas cylinder filling plants. The Latvian Messer subsidiary Elme Messer in Riga also received a silver award for 500,000 accident-free work hours.

Stefan Messer, owner and CEO, was appointed EIGA President on 1 November 2007. The European Industrial Gases Association is based in Brussels. From this location, it represents the vast majority of European companies that produce and distribute industrial, medical and food gases. The member companies closely co-operate in trying to achieve the highest possible standards in terms of safety and environmental protection during the production, transportation and application of gases.
