In the first half of 2016 there were 10,276 workplace accidents in Hungary – 27 percent more than in the same period of 2015 – and many of these could have been avoided. MOL has decided that from 1 January 2017 the company requires a health and safety at work certificate from those contractors that perform high-risk work. At international level most of the large companies work with contractors that have the SCC/VCA certification, which guarantees health and safety at work.

This certification scheme was established by oil companies in the port of Rotterdam in 1994 and has been standardised and adopted all over Europe since then. The programme has been available in Hungary since 2009 and thanks to MOL’s decision, from this year only those contractors can work for the oil company that have earned the SCC/VCA certification. Csaba Kurucz, MOL’s work health and safety manager told that this step would create safer conditions for Hungarian workers. (x)
