On Monday 17th February 2020, we celebrated 4 million hours without a Lost Time Incident, on the MSD Biotech project in Dublin. This is a hugely significant achievement over a 23 month period.

World-class health and safety standards

"This is a clear demonstration of what can be achieved by maintaining world-class standards in health and safety on our construction sites. Key to our success was establishing a clear link between safety and quality from the start. The safety and quality programmes rolled out and maintained throughout the project life cycle are truly world class.

Supporting these programmes required conscious, continuous focus. Safety was at the centre of the planning, coordination and execution phases on what is MSD’s largest project globally. More than 6,200 safety inductions were completed. We also had various campaigns including Working at Heights, Mental Health and Climate Change Awareness,” said John Hassett, Construction Director, PM Group.
