EHS Solutions for the 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.

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.   

Occupli 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. Occupli 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.
