This year’s CIF Construction Safety Week ran from 21st-25th October and Tandem Project Management was proud to participate.
Tandem ran a host of events over the course of the week ranging from guest speakers, demonstrations, videos, Q&As, group discussions to health and safety quizzes and a prize giving.
Key topics covered included; Mental Health and Wellbeing in Construction, Working Safely with Electricity, Working Safely at Height, Vehicle Risk & Safety in Lifting Operations and Working Safely with Hazardous Substances. Tandem employees, contractors and even clients also got involved and added their CSW Health & Safety Pledges to the Tandem safety pledge board.
The week started with a presentation on Mental Health and Wellbeing in Construction, which included some staggering statistics on suicide in the Irish Construction Industry and tips on what we can do to protect our mental heath and how to find support.
Discussions continued all week with Adrian Jones, Tandem EHS officer, leading the dialogue, and guest presenter, Anthony Flood from Maor Scaffolding, who had expert advice for working on or around scaffolding and elevated work platforms.
The week was a great success and allowed us all to stop, think, and put safety first, something Tandem pledges to always do.
