As part of the GBV Prevention Award, the Nuremberg company was honored with a certificate. The VBG, the largest provider of statutory accident insurance in Germany, honored the commitment of the people of Nuremberg in the Corona vaccination campaign. Almost 5,100 people visited Impfstrasse at the company headquarters, including employees from other companies in Nuremberg.
When it comes to health and safety at work, there are numerous companies in Germany that find and implement exemplary solutions. This is the conclusion reached by Edgar Wilk, vice president of the VBG representative assembly: “Nuremberg Insurance is definitely one of them. With his professional and rapid implementation of an in-house vaccination and testing line, he made a significant contribution to the fact that many people could be vaccinated in a short time. That’s why we decided to honor the people of Nuremberg with a certificate for their commitment.”
Vaccination offer for 22,000 people
Frank Hillingshäuser, Head of Materials and Service Management at Nürnberger Versicherung: “We are very pleased with this award. Finally, it recognizes the commitment of all those involved who have contributed to making the vaccination route a success.” A total of nearly 5,100 people received a first, second or booster shot. In addition to Nuremberg employees and their families, vaccinations were also offered to employees and their families from 15 companies in Nuremberg. Hillingshäuser continues: “Since we, as Nurembergers, are optimally networked in all important areas of public and medical life, we were able to set up the vaccination line very quickly. We were able to vaccinate around 22,000 people.”
Teamwork as the key to success
According to Hillingshäuser, a team from various relevant areas was first brought together in the company, which in turn established a vaccination route concept in many meetings, planning sessions and agreements with authorities and doctors. “Vaccine supply, close coordination with IZ Bayern GmbH or organization of vaccination appointments: there were so many different tasks that all had to be completed in a very short time. None of this would have been possible without the excellent teamwork,” sums up Frank Hillingshäuser. Experts from the fields of occupational safety, health management, marketing and business continuity management played a prominent role.
