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 Project Management puts safety first on all design and construction projects. On Friday 31st May 2019 Tandem ran a Safety Morning for all contractors working on a construction project at the Alexion biologics manufacturing facility, in Athlone, Co. Roscommon.
The event included co-ordinated cross-trade health & safety walk downs, guest Health & Safety key note speaker James Gorry, a Tandem Project Management Safety Prize giving, and interactive presentations from the Client, the Tandem Project Management Construction Management Team, EHS and the Tandem established project Safety Action Team (SAT; a cross functional safety team empowered to deal with all safety issues and safety queries on site regardless of which contractors are involved) covering a wide range of topics.
The event marked over 50,000 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. Over 1000 Safety Observation Reports have been submitted by contractors since the beginning of the project, testament to the emphasis placed by Tandem on safety and continual improvement. Tandem Project Management would like to thank all participants in contributing to such a worthwhile and successful event.
