- All engaged in the works were given the required level of information, instruction and training to deliver their individual tasks safely
- All isolations were handled by MSS
- On going site audits, comprehensive inductions and supervision ensured the site operated safely
- A system of welfare cabins and offices were sited to provide a CDM compliant welfare provision for all site personnel
