Jones Engineering Group has achieved accreditation to the Safe T Cert which is promoted by the Construction Industry Federation (C.I.F.) and certified by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (I.O.S.H.).

- An in-depth audit of the Safety Management System in Waterways House.

The following Group sites were audited:
- Conoco Phillips – O’Sheas Electrical.
- Intel – H. A. O’Neil & Patrick Lynch Electrical.
- Astellas – H. A. O’Neil.
- Project Edge – H. A. O’Neil and Irish Sprinkler & Fire Protection.

Interviews were conducted with the relevant Contract Managers (Richie Moloney (O’Sheas) Robert Irvin (Patrick Lynch), Brendan McAtamney (H. A. O’Neil ) & Ray Greene (Irish Sprinkler Fire Protection), all who were exceptional in their knowledge of the company safety systems.
The site supervisor’s (Joe Geary/Nathan Fitzpatrick/Joe Keogh/Ian Dagg/Tony Gomez/Seamus Fox), EHS Advisors and some of our workforce were also interviewed and must be commended for their efforts.
Jones Engineering Group was awarded three sections:
a) Observations & interviews
The sites were chosen at random by the independent auditor. He was very impressed with the level of safety knowledge expressed and the commitment of all persons involved to carry it through from the planning level at the workface.
This ultimately proves that the management and staff are fully committed to providing a safe working environment for everybody when we are carrying out work for the company on any project. This certification must be renewed every year after an independent audit and our company must provide evidence that it is continually improving its safety performance.
Every day the group strives to ensure a safe work place for all, but this also requires each one of us to play our part. We must constantly identify where our work could present hazards to ourselves or others and that we have the resources to eliminate or reduce these hazards to an acceptable level.
A huge thank you must go to those named above and all of their teams involved; for their efforts in ensuring a safer workplace and attaining this certification.
