MDD and MSCL Partner with Du Pont

Monday, June 24, 2002
Malta Drydocks (MDD) and Malta Shipbuilding (MSCL) have joined forces with the Swiss-based Safety Company, Du Pont Safety Resources, to implement a major safety improvement program involving all levels of employees throughout each business. The extensive and in depth program will last three years and has the objective of substantially reducing the number of unsafe acts that ultimately lead to accidents. Continuous work is ongoing to improve safety performance at both MDD and MSCL. Improvements in recent years have taken place with MDD being awarded the British Safety Council 4 Star rating in 2001. This new initiative will enable more progress to be made and takes the safety agenda to the forefront in both companies. Chief Executive Peter Moore said, “Safety performance is a major factor in winning contracts particularly when dealing with the offshore sector. Ship owners and management companies are also now appreciating the benefits of effective safety performance. Safety in the workplace is a prime objective and this is a clear example of MDD and MSCL leading the way in improving safety and the working environment.”
