Integrated into all MD systems is Health and Safety. Policies and Procedures have been implemented across a diverse range of working conditions to ensure a safe working environment for management and staff (refer attached Health, Safety and Environmental Policies). These procedures include initial induction and ongoing training of all personnel in their respective tasks/duties and all associated health/safety documentation and reporting (training matrixes for all personnel are available on request).
MD have long term contracts with Clients such as Exxon Mobil and Chevron working on live fuel station sites, therefore Health and Safety systems are routinely audited and refined to ensure the highest possible level of safety is maintained.
As well as conducting normal routine internal audits, in April 2009 MD Health and Safety Systems successfully passed a review by the Labour Department. MD currently hold valid 2014-2015 secondary level accreditation for ACC Workplace Safety Management Systems and expects tertiary levels to be forthcoming within 2015-2016.
One fully comprehensive document is routinely implemented into projects to form the Health and Safety Plan. For major projects a more detailed pre-start Site Inspection and Site Specific Hazard Assessment is carried out. The findings from these are reviewed and a Site Specific Health and Safety Plan compiled.

<li>Iain Haycock Project Manager</li>
