ILA H&S Award


During the 2018 General Assembly and Information Exchange Forum in South Africa the ILA joined the Global Initiative “VISION ZERO” ( for safety, health and wellbeing at work, developed by the International Social Insurance Association (ISSA). By committing to this successful international strategy, we intend to establish a culture of prevention at all the workplaces in the global lime industry. We will strengthen our efforts for better workplace safety, health and wellbeing towards zero accidents and work-related diseases. In 2022 the ILA Health & Safety Award was celebrated for the first time in person with all award-winners, participants, jury members and several other ILA members.
