Manufacturing Sector - Chris Mee Group | CMSE

Manufacturing Sector


Ireland’s manufacturing story has evolved from traditional to modern manufacturing over the years and has remained a key driver of the economy.  There are over 4,000 manufacturers throughout Ireland, with over 159,000 employed.  Manufacturing contributes 24% of total economic output and Manufacturing firms invest over €3.4bn in the Irish economy and purchase over €12 bn from Irish suppliers.  ( Source IBEC).  Ireland has strengths in a range of manufacturing sectors including Food, Medical Devices, Pharma/BioPharma, ICT, Plastics, Engineering and Green Technologies.   Food, Chemicals,  Computer, Electronics & Optical Products together equate to 50.2 per cent of manufacturing employment  while  Machinery and Equipment equate to 14 per cent. There has also being  marked growth in Medical Technologies sector as well as an  emergence of Green/Clean Technologies sector.

EHS Solutions for the Manufacturing Sector

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.

Sustainable Manufacturing – No Longer a Choice

Environmental & energy concerns regarding sustainability have increased over the past decades. Manufacturing is potentially one of the most significant sources of negative environmental impact given the carbon footprint arising from material and energy use, and the solid waste, air and water emissions that occur through production.  Those manufacturers that invest in energy efficiency will be better positioned for the future.  Sustainable manufacturing involves minimising negative environmental impacts across all aspects of production involving materials, energy, consumption, natural resource conservation, waste management etc. Chris Mee Group is a leading provider of environmental and energy consultancy for a wide range of manufacturing clients. Services include Climate Change and Carbon Emissions, EU ETS, Waste Management, IPC IED Licensing and EMAS & ISO 14001 Environmental Management.
