Mercury Fire Protection Recognises Outstanding Safety Achievements

Author: Evan O'Quigley  /  23rd May, 2019  /  Environmental, Health & Safety

Mercury is delighted to announce that its Fire Protection business unit has recently achieved a number of Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) milestones. This is demonstrated by the continuous very low level of incidents and accidents along with a multi-year EHS performance without a single Lost Time Injury (LTI) or reportable injury.

Safety recognition from Project Managers, PSCS and General Contractors has been received across numerous projects for this outstanding commitment to Health & Safety, most recently demonstrated on a very large pharmaceutical project in Dublin where a joint venture project manager commended the Fire Protection project team on achieving major milestones regarding sprinkler testing, install quality and the overall ongoing high standard of site safety (Please see photographed above).

Another major positive consequence which arose from this recent accolade was the recognition from the project managers of an individual employee who identified an unsafe working environment on site which had the potential for serious personnel injury. The individual adopted Mercury’s “Find It, Fix It” policy and personally made the area safe and only then reported it to a supervisor, documented it and submitted a Project SOR (Safety Observation Report). This led to the individual receiving an individual award for SOR of the Week from the PSCS. The Mercury Contracts Manager received the award on behalf of the individual (pictured above).
