Michael O’Connor, QEHSS Director, launches Safety Month 2022 at Mercury
Safety is our anchor value, and as a global contractor delivering complex projects alongside our multi-national clients, safety is embedded in our DNA.
Mercury is a proud partner of the CIF’s Construction Safety Month, and EU Safety Week 2022. We are looking forward to celebrating our safety culture throughout our key regions from October 17-28th.
Over 7,500 Mercury people, on 40+ projects will take part in safety month initiatives, including toolbox talks, training, practical demonstrations, stand downs, presentations, and more.
Speaking ahead of the beginning of our Safety Month initiatives, Michael O’Connor, Group QEHSS Director said: “Safety is our anchor value, and key industry events such as CIF Safety Month & EU Safety Week provide us with a platform to further demonstrate why Mercury’s reputation as a global safety leader is deserved.”
The theme of Safety Month 2022 focuses on celebrating best practice, while promoting the importance of safety, health, and overall wellbeing, not only in the workplace but also in applying the safety skills learned in work to our lives at home.
Mercury continues to influence best safety practices within our industry and has led the way on multiple programmes across international projects that benefit our own operations, those of our clients, and the construction sector. We are excited to demonstrate further our industry-leading safety practices throughout October, but also beyond as every month is safety month for us.
Michael O’Connor added: “We have recorded remarkable groupwide EHS performances this year, which we are very proud of. These achievements would not be possible without the dedication and buy-in of our people and management.’’
He continued, “In addition, our commitment to delivering industry-leading safety training and inductions, while nurturing a culture that supports the wellbeing of our people both inside and outside the workplace, has been crucial, and I would like to thank our team members for their continued dedication, and efforts to communicate, and coordinate works in a safe manner.”
Keep an eye on our social media channels over the coming weeks where we will be showcasing some of our best Safety Month initiatives.
We are dedicated to achieving the highest possible standards of Health & Safety. Safety is embedded in our DNA, it is the Mercury way – from design to construction, commissioning, and handover – our safety processes ensure adequate coordination and communication to enable our projects to be constructed safely.
Our team understand that by sticking to the safe coordinated plan we can guarantee that our team get home safely to their families at the end of every day. Safety is personal and our team intervene proactively to ensure compliance day by day and hour by hour. We respect our workforce, and they respect our management as an integrated team with a common goal – to get home safe each day. Through our Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) policies and procedures, we ensure an industry leading project delivery every time and most importantly – the safety and wellbeing of all our employees.
