MSD would like to take this opportunity to thank all of its team members for their hard work and
dedication to safety. As of July 1, 2014 MSD’s EMR has dropped from a 0.72 to a 0.65, and after the
first half of the year its incident rate went from a 7.62 in 2013 to a 2.02. This kind of improvement is in
direct correlation with the awareness and drive of MSD’s team members to be The Industry Leader in
everything that they do. This achievement gives MSD the ability to continue relationships it has built
with clients and develop new ones. It also leaves room for some new programs that will benefit all of its
team members. Congratulations and keep up the good work, remembering that safety and health are not
destinations, but journeys.
MSD is pleased to announce our new “Safety Rewards “program.
Here is how it works.
Who- Any team member can nominate any team member (including oneself) for “Safety Team
Member of the Month”.
For What- Anything that is “above and beyond” our normal safety requirements.
Ex. Safety suggestions, voluntary participation in audits and/or training, investigations, hazard
recognition and abatement, near miss reporting, leading classes, etc…
How- 1) Paper form, available in the file folder at the front desk, returned to the Safety Manager.
2) Portal form submitted online.
All nominations will be presented anonymously to the safety committee, which meets the last
Wednesday of each month. The committee will select the winner based on the reported actions. That person
will be named “Safety Team Member of the Month”.
Other Possible Categories:
“Co-Safety Team Member of the Month”
The winner of each applicable category will receive a comparable prize.
Ex. gift card, basket, package, cash, etc…
The winner will be recognized and picture published in the newsletter and on the portal.

Helicopter Lift Safety Helicopter lifting can be a fast and efficient way to move materials and equipment to locations beyond the practical reach
of perimeter cranes. For buildings or plants with large plan areas, helicopter lifting is often an efficient alternative to crane access
through the roof, which can require major structural work and disrupt plant operations. Locations suited to helicopter lifting include
auto plants with their typically large, sprawling plans.
The operation and control of helicopters requires highly trained and experienced personnel. Helicopter lifting demands careful
planning. The work must be organized around the aircraft and the factors that govern its operation such as load limitations,
surrounding terrain and structures, and weather conditions. The prime movers and key personnel during lifting operations are
the pilots and the mechanics or marshallers who normally work for the helicopter rigging subcontractor.
Under the aircraft
• Downwash from aircraft rotors produces high winds and turns dust, dirt, and loose objects into airborne projectiles.
• Noise and high wind under a hovering helicopter contribute to tense working conditions that can be
tiring for the ground crew.
• Constant concentration, safe practice, and vigilance are required.
Helicopter Lifting Accidents Statistics
• 90% of accidents occur during pickup or laydown
• 5% are caused by defective sling gear
• 5% have other miscellaneous causes.

(DND does a lot of bulk lifting using nets as rigging.)
41% occur at pickup point
51% occur in flight
8% occur in drop zone
