Excellence in Health & Safety

What did we submit?

EPS was delighted to have our work on the Coppermills WTW, London for SMB / Thames Water / eight2O recognised at the Irish Construction Industry Awards.

The DfMA (Design for Manufacture & Assembly) approach to this project delivered some incredible H&S statistics, not least 890 safe days on site; 90% reduction in working at height; 92% reduction in labour and 40% reduction in carbon.

These principles are applied to all our projects. Our UK Contracts Manager Michael O’Sullivan accepted the award on behalf of our MEPS joint venture delivery partners MWH Treatment and fellow Irish company Shay Murtagh Precast.

We were already so proud to have played a significant part in safeguarding the water supply for over 4M people in London on this project.
We were in excellent company and up against stiff competition in this category, so to get recognised for our achievements shows us that our approach is the right one.
