At the award ceremony, held in Dublin, Murphy was awarded joint first place in the ‘best health and safety initiative’ category, second place in the ‘best project (€2 - €5 million)’ category and was highly commended in the ‘best project (under €2 million)’ category.
John G Murphy, managing director of Murphy International, said: “It was a source of great pride to receive joint first place in the ‘best health and safety initiative’ category. We came up against stiff opposition from eminent industry peers and so a big thank you has to go to all our staff whose hard work saw us receive such high recognition. It was great to see so many Murphy entries shortlisted for awards and praised by the judges - all of whom are respected leaders in the Irish construction industry.”
The team collecting the ‘best health and safety initiative’ award did so due to the proactive measures they had taken to manage and mitigate the impact of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) on all sites.
