Tandem Project Management puts safety first on all design and construction projects. On Friday 2nd August 2019 Tandem ran the latest in a series of ProjectSafety Mornings. The event was run for all contractors working on a construction project at the Alexion biologics manufacturing facility, in Athlone, Co. Roscommon. It was an opportunity to pause and thank contractors for continued levels of engagement with EHS systems and procedures on site.
The morning’s events focused on live services and associated hazards and included a co-ordinated cross-trade health & safety walk down, a health & safety quiz with spot prizes, the monthly EHS prize giving and presentations from members of the project Safety Action Team (SAT). The morning culminated with a full Irish breakfast for all contractors before the bank holiday weekend.
The morning marked over 80,000 hours without a Lost Time Injury on the project. Contractors were commended on their compliance, engagement with and participation in Tandem Project Management Safety Initiatives. Tandem Project Management would like to thank all participants in contributing to such a worthwhile and successful event.

Following the success of our 2018 Undergraduate Programme, we are delighted to welcome six students to Tandem Project Management as part of our 2019 Undergraduate Programme. The view of this programme is to develop undergraduates through structured work experience over a number of months, whose work can make a positive difference to our clients, our team and the larger community.
This year we welcomed the following engineering students from University College Cork, Cork Institute of Technology and University College Dublin, Ciara O’Connor (B.Eng. Civil), Shakil Rahman (B.Eng. Civil), Liam O’Connor (B.Eng. Process), Michael Cantillon Murphy (B.Eng. Mechanical), Nicholas Hourigan (B.Eng. Electrical) and Roisin Hickey (M.E. Engineering with Business). The students will have the opportunity to work in our design offices and on site, and will be mentored by our senior team members throughout their internship. Working on site will allow the students to learn the social and communication skills they need to work in teams, liaise with contractors’ and deal with clients and communities.
We would like to thank these students for their positive contributions to the team to date and we hope to see them entering our Graduate Programme in the coming years.
As part of the Tandem Project Management EHS & Wellness Initiative Mary Carmody of Mary Carmody Nutrition came to Tandem head office to give a nutrition talk and demo. Tandem personnel were treated to an interactive presentation covering the importance of nutrition in our overall health and wellbeing. There were sample smoothies, snacks and plenty of practical, easy tips on how to make nutritious, healthy food and snacks that work well in our busy modern lives. Mary also had her Tanita scales (as seen on Operation Transformation) and offered individual confidential consultations to all Tandem personnel.
Tandem strives to promote the importance of health & wellbeing both at work and in the daily lives of its personnel. Thank to you to Mary and Tandem personnel for participating in the latest EHS & Wellness event.

Tandem can offer our clients Operational Readiness Services to assist in preparing the client and planning for the handover of a capital project to operations. We work with the client team to establish what key activities and associated actions need to be completed by each function to ensure readiness for the next phase of the project, prior to and including commercial operations. We work collaboratively with our clients to think objectively about what tasks are essential, to project manage the volume of work, to establish roles and responsibilities between functions with the aim of ensuring all areas are ready for the next milestones in the project life-cycle .
We use our extensive industry knowledge to help our clients develop the steps necessary to ensure successful start-up of their facility. We can provide the software tools to support both people and workload management, as well as providing Operational Readiness progress tracking and monitoring for reporting to the Client’s key stakeholders and sponsors.
If you would like to find out more about Operational Readiness or any of the services that we offer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Tandem Project Management is proud to have partnered with the CIF for Construction Safety Week 2018 and is delighted to have been actively involved in promoting industry best standards. The objective of Safety Week was to continue to highlight the issues of health and safety in the Irish construction industry and to drive continual improvement.
We ran a series of events across our construction sites to mark CIF Construction Safety Week. The events included Tandem toolbox talks on CIF’s daily safety topics and an interactive ‘Safety in Numbers’ workshop. The aim of this workshop is to challenge attendees to think about how they view health and safety in the workplace and re-evaluate its importance from the individual and team perspective. Attendees were presented with a certificate on completion of the workshop. We also shared the daily topic posters across sites and on our social media platforms to raise awareness and promote Construction Safety Week to our employees and followers.
