End of May 1996 an eco-audit work group was initiated by Henning Eggers, by that time shop steward and environmental manager of Heidelberg Prepress. The work group was managed by Klaus Kuhl, TBS S-H.
The work group discussed experience with environmental management systems with a large number of shopstewards and employee representatives in Schleswig-Holstein. The summarized results were published in a TBS brochure. Especially the companies Schülke & Mayr, Heidelberg Prepress, Elac Electroacoustic and SP-Beton together with their environmetally minded shopstewards and employee representatives were at the forefront of the development.
After some years we combined the group with another work group
dealing with occupational health and safety of the metal union
in Kiel. It consists mainly of shopstewards and employee representatives
from all sectors. Nevertheless there are also union members without
function and guest participating. Any other interested people
The work group meets every fourth Tuesday in a month; venue is the union house in Kiel. Environmental issues have lost its prominence, meanwhile mainly OSH issues are on the agenda.
