SIUT GmbH

Luminous platform edge made of light fiber concrete

The entry

“Caution at the edge of the platform!” SIUT GmbH from Berlin has developed a solution precisely for this danger. A luminous platform edge made of light fiber concrete directs and warns passengers on the platform.

Decision of the jury

The tactile guidance system in the floor provides signals that warn of passing trains, controls passenger flows, and thus avoids crowding and falls. And it provides a visual barrier at the edge of the platform. The system has also proved its practical benefit in test railway stations.

Bornack GmbH & Co. KG

Fallbag

The entry

Airbag protective vest against falls

Falls from low heights are among the most frequent accidents at work. The “Bornack Fallbag” by Bornack GmbH & Co. KG from Ilsfeld is designed to provide protection against the worst injuries to the trunk, spine, tailbone, and the back of the head.

Decision of the jury

For work performed at heights between one and three meters, conventional safety measures such as safety nets usually do not work or are not used at all. If there is a fall, a sensor-controlled airbag built into a protective vest is triggered at lightning speed and dampens the impact. For the jury, this solution closes a gap in safety at work.
