Great result of the Jokey trainees in the occupational safety competition of the trade association BG RCI

About 2,100 apprentices from 138 companies took part in the 2021/2022 apprentice competition organised by the German Trade Association for Raw Materials and Chemical Industry (BG RCI). Among them were trainees from the Jokey plants in Wipperfürth and Gummersbach. In a gripping final on 23 June, the team from Jokey Wipperfürth finished in a sensational 4th place.

The trainee competition under the motto "Safety from the start" is part of VISION ZERO, a prevention strategy of BG RCI for workplaces free of accidents and illnesses. In a 9-month challenge, the trainees learn in a playful way to stay fit and healthy in their working lives.

The apprentices of Jokey Wipperfürth took part in the competition for the second time; the apprentices from Gummersbach were there for the first time. The trainees from Wipperfürth were delighted to enter the final of the “Safety Heroes” with a great performance, while the newcomers from Gummersbach performed excellently in qualifying.

The finale – pure excitement and excitement

The grand finale took place from 22 to 24 June in Willingen, in the Sauerland region. At the final, the six best teams of the group challenge competed against each other. The team from Gummersbach was of course part of the game to cheer on the Wipperfürth team. In an exciting, highly thrilling final, the participants had to collect points in a quiz and pass practical safety exercises. "It was super exciting, we were cheering along with every question and every action," reports Leonie Metzner, participant and commercial trainee at Jokey SE in Wipperfürth. After an intense struggle, Jokey Wipperfürth was finally tied on points with the team from Spezialpapiere GmbH, and both thus took 4th place. At the end of an emotionally charged final, confetti rain fell on the exhausted but happy "Safety Heroes".
