Latest News > Construction Safety Week - Monday 12th September - Topic: Working At Height Awareness
For the first day of Construction Safety Week, MMD Construction organised a "Spot the Difference" scoffoldig event on the BioMarin Pharmaceutical Construction Site, in conjunction with our Scaffolding Sub-Contractor, Purcell Scaffolding.
Two scaffoldings were erected, one with ten faults, and one with no faults. Employees were asked to examine both scaffoldings to find as many faults as they could, employees put answers on a card, and these will be used for Septembers Safety Recognition. MMD Construction has introduced a Safety Recognition Scheme on our building sites, which encourages all Site Operatives to participate on a voluntary basis to gain acknowledgement of good health and safety practice.
As well as rewarding the construction workers on site, the MMD Construction Safety Recognition Scheme contributes to the improvement of the effective management of the Company's Occupational Health and Safety Managment System.
