The cold protection cream from the STOKO Skin Care product range was given a prize for innovation by the British Safety Industry Federation in May. "We are very proud of this prize," comments Johannes Sitzmann, head
"We are very proud of this prize," comments Johannes Sitzmann, head of STOKO Skin Care, "as it underlines the performance of our research and development." The BSIF gives annual awards for innovative products that make a significant contribution to preventing workplace accidents or illness.
At the Health & Safety Expo in Birmingham Phil Lockheed accepted the award on behalf of all at STOKO Skin Care.
And this year the winner of the BSIF Product Innovation Award is STOKO frost protect. Frost protect protects skin from cold and ice, and is used, for example, by railway employees in Siberia. But Arctic researchers have also been able to successfully rely on the protective effect of the cream during their work at the Arctic Ocean, thanks to a special anti-freeze effect even when the temperature is below zero.
