Tandem Thanks Contractors for Safety Performance

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 Project Safety 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.
