  • 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”

    honorable mention

    top nominator


    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.

    The winner will also be nominated for “Safety Team Member of the Year”.

    Safety Team Member of the Year:

    Each “Safety Team Member of the Month” will automatically be nominated for “Safety Team Member

    of the Year”. The Safety Committee will convene for a special session in December to determine the winner, to

    be announced at the Christmas party.

    “Safety Team Member of the Year” will receive:

    A prize commensurate with their accomplishment.

    Recognition in the newsletter and on the portal.

    A Nomination for ABC National’s “Safety Employee of the Year”.

  • 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.)

    Accident locations

    41% occur at pickup point

    51% occur in flight

    8% occur in drop zone
