According to IBEC the top business environment issue facing Irish Manufactures is regulatory compliance including health and safety and environmental regulations. Manufacturing is one of the industries with the most workplace injuries and fatalities. As with any manufacturer, where employees work around automated machinery, moving parts and electrical devices, employers must protect their workforce from the risks. Failure to comply to legislation can lead to punitive fines, potential personal lawsuits from injured employees, not to mention the damage to a company’s reputation. Chris Mee Group was founded in 1996 in Ireland as a specialist health and safety consultancy firm and has being working with manufacturing clients since to reduce the risk of workplace accident or injury occurring. Chris Mee Group provides health and safety support in areas such as working with machinery and exposure to hazardous substances which are some of the main causes of fatalities, major, and minor injuries within the manufacturing industry. Chris Mee Group also work with manufacturing clients to implement realistic health and safety checks to improve compliance and ensure procedures are being properly adopted and practically executed by the workforce.
