MDD, Ship Building in three-year safety partnership

Malta Drydocks and Malta Ship Building have joined forces with the Swiss-based internationally-renowned safety company - Du Pont Safety Resources - to implement a major safety improvement programme involving all levels of employees throughout each business.

The extensive and in-depth programme will last three years and has the objective of substantially reducing the number of unsafe acts that ultimately lead to accidents.

Continuous work is on-going to improve safety performance at both MDD and MSCL. Improvements over recent years have taken place with MDD being awarded the British Safety Council 4 Star rating in 2001. This new initiative will enable more progress to be made and takes the safety agenda to the forefront in both companies.

Chief Executive Peter Moore explained, "Safety performance is a major factor in winning contracts particularly when dealing with the offshore sector.

Ship owners and management companies are also now appreciating the benefits of effective safety performance. Safety in the workplace is a prime objective and this is a clear example of MDD and MSCL leading the way in improving safety and the working environment."
