Reduce sick leave - increase productivity

March 5, 2021
Employees with masks greet each other by elbow.

High sickness rates are a burden for many companies. Many companies have discovered that this is not only dependent on the time of year and the incidence of infection, but can also be directly influenced. They are actively working to improve employee satisfaction and are developing suitable programs to increase this important factor. However, the heating factor is often overlooked, especially in production companies.

The problem: Heating systems commonly used in production halls or warehouses blow warm air into the work areas. This not only stirs up dust and disperses aerosols, but also creates an unpleasant working atmosphere. It is not uncommon for sauna conditions to prevail in the immediate vicinity of the blowers and it can often be observed that people work in T-shirts under these conditions, even if the temperature outside is below zero. But no one puts on a jacket when the gate is open or when a quick walk across the yard is required.

One of Europe's leading manufacturers of precision chains in North Rhine-Westphalia regularly struggled with this problem in winter. The solution emerged as a side effect after the decision had actually been made to install a new, energy-saving hall heating system for economic reasons. This not only reduced the previously enormously high energy costs, but also significantly optimized heating comfort. This is because the infrared technology used ensures a pleasant, uniform and draught-free working climate in the hall buildings. In addition, the temperature can be precisely controlled, for example to a working temperature of 18 °C in the production area. Employees in production now work in seasonally appropriate clothing and absenteeism due to illness has fallen measurably.

  • Only around half of German companies are aware of their waste heat potential - this is what dena writes in its publication on waste heat utilization as part of the Energy Efficiency Initiative. This means that an estimated 226 TWh of usable heat goes unused every year. That is 36 % of the energy used by the entire manufacturing industry. Clearly, this costs companies an enormous amount of money, but at the same time the unused waste heat has a negative impact on the environment. Around 60 million tons of the greenhouse gas CO2 are unnecessarily evaporated into the atmosphere every year. In view of rising energy costs and climate protection targets, companies simply can no longer afford to do this.
  • Turnverein 1860 Mußbach e.V. is a traditional sports club with a long history. Since it was founded in 1860, it has got a large number of people of all ages and backgrounds moving and now has over 1,200 members. The club offers a wide range of sporting activities. Dieter Hackebeil, former chairman of the club and now (un)retired, was the main person responsible for the renewal of the heating system at the time and can "only praise KÜBLER to the skies." Satisfaction and conviction are the key words here.
  • While Germany is discussing the energy transition, KÜBLER GmbH from Ludwigshafen has already delivered. FUTURA is the name of the latest invention from the experts for hall heating systems - and it works regardless of the energy source: the infrared heating system for halls uses hydrogen, electricity, gas or a mix of these. It can process green and fossil fuels highly efficiently, thus building a bridge to the carbon-free era. This is one of the reasons why the Investitions- und Strukturbank Rheinland-Pfalz (ISB) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture awarded KÜBLER the special prize "Innovative Technologies for Climate Protection" at the SUCCESS Innovation Award on Tuesday evening.
  • Hot air, panel heating or infrared? There are many different heating systems to choose from for heating halls. This article will give you an initial overview of the six most relevant systems.
