MDE WELLNESS MONTH
In the dark month of November, MDE are aiming to inspire some positivity by running a Wellness Initiative across the business.
All MDE employees and their families have the opportunity to partake in virtual fitness classes and online wellness / mental talks across the entire month of November. With weekly spot prizes on active participation in our weekly challenges, Geraldine Shanahan was our first winner of €100 One for All voucher.
Last weeks challenge was centred around Healthy Eating with ‘The Most Creative, Healthy Lunch / Dinner,’ being rewarded. We had some excellent entries across the company but Geraldine just pipped the post with the final vote.
This week, we have The Active Challenge, with squats, burpees, and jumping jacks. Watch this space! Thanks to Ryan’s Gym for all his hard work in preparing our company specific training videos.

Week 2 of our MDE’s Wellness Month was focused on keeping active. Our Active Challenge was to complete burpees, jumping jacks and squats. We are very proud of our staff’s participation in this challenge. The efforts of our valued employees in trying to live healthier lives must be highly commended. Fantastic to see our MDE families getting involved too!
It was a very close call, but our winner was Kevin Cochrane – a key member of our Smart Meter Installation Field Team. Even more impressive, during his tea break Kevin had one of his Customers counting his reps!
Super effort Kevin! Well done to everyone!

This week brought the ‘Clearing our spaces, clearing our minds challenge.’
The MDE Team spent time this week decluttering and organising their work spaces.
Cleaning and organising are strongly associated with decreasing stress and anxiety. Going through this process can also lead to a great level of satisfaction and feeling the positive energy associated with being productive.
Again, we received some fantastic entries of clean, tidy, well organised desks and vans! MDE has never looked so good! Our winner this week was Karl Casserly, a key member of our MDE Field Team. Well done Karl.

REDUCE SCREEN TIME CHALLENGE
The final week of MDE’s Wellness Month brought a challenge which was perhaps the most difficult in our modern ‘technology-filled’ world.
Our smartphones, tablets, laptops and televisions engulf our time by providing infinite possible functions – work, entertainment, shopping, socialising, organisation, direction finding, learning, fitness tracking, news. However, evidence shows that all of that screen time is affecting our health.
MDE continue to put our employees’ health and well-being first and set a challenge of reducing screen time on personal phones.
With this, there are 4 big benefits of getting less screen time:
1.) It can reduce eyestrain.
2.) It can improve posture – too much slouching over digital devices can damage muscles nerves, tendons, ligaments and spinal disks.
3.) It can improve your sleep.
4.) It can increase your focus.
Congratulations to Cheryl Kelly in our Omagh Office who won our challenge this week. A €100 voucher on it’s way to you!

MDE continue to be one of the first electrical engineering companies to become certified to the new international Quality Management Standard ISO9001:2015 and the Environmental Management Standard ISO14001:2015.
An independent assessment was conducted by the leading Certification Body (SGS UK Ltd) which firmly established MDE Ltd as a leading player in its field for customer service, quality and environmental awareness. As a result of which, MDE were awarded a ‘high standard’ of implementation for both accreditations.
MDE Ltd have achieved these standards by combining a process approach with risk-based thinking, employing a Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle at all levels in the organisation and by showing comprehensive leadership by embedding quality and environmental performance into all aspects of our everyday services.
These ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 standards highlights MDE’s commitment to continuously implement improvements and to ensure consistency, assuring our clients and customers of our highest level of performance, satisfaction and our ability to step up to meet the demands of modern industrial requirements throughout all our work practices.
We have been working hard over the past few months on our new website and today we are delighted to launch the new MDE Installations website.
One of the major updates in our new design was to create a mobile friendly website.
We take pride in the work we do, take a look at some of our latest projects.
We are extremely proud to announce that our Health & Safety Management System, Safe-T-Cert has been accredited by the Construction Employers Federation in February 2018 and that we have maintained the highest possible grade (Grade A) for a third year running.
This grade demonstrates MDE’s long term commitment to ensuring the paramount safety of all our employees and that of any third parties that may be effected by our work practices.
The Safe-T-Cert accreditation which MDE has adopted, covers a wide variety of policies and procedures including a Training Matrix, Inductions, Toolbox Talks/Discussions, Site Rules, Emergency Procedures, PPE, PAT, Accident Reporting, Method Statements, Risk Assessments and many more.
The Health, Safety and Welfare of all our employees is at the forefront of MDE’s priorities and we believe that with the right attitude, positive culture and sufficient training, all work practices can be completed in a safe manner without the occurrence of injuries.
MDE has a ‘zero tolerance’ for poor safety and dangerous work practices. This is validated by regular and robust audits on all our sites to ensure standards are being maintained at all times. The commitment and dedication that senior management have towards Health and Safety has contributed to low accident statistics throughout the years.
MDE are proud to confirm that in the 20 years of operation, we have never experienced a serious accident, which is a great achievement for a company that is involved in the electrical industry.
Our latest audit, dated February 2018 stated ‘The company continues to manage health and safety in an highly efficient manner. Accreditation is maintained at the top level of ‘A’.
MDE has achieved 425,750 man-hours within the last 3 years without lost time injury over a various range of complex construction sites.
This accomplishment demonstrates the MDE Team’s working ability. Each and every employee across the sites and offices, takes full responsibility for their own safety and that of others, whilst ensuring that the highest standards of occupational health and safety management is implemented throughout all work practices.
MDE are committed to operating with foresight and with a safety conscious mind-set at all times.
MDE believe that in highlighting this excellent achievement, it gives all of MDE’s personnel a feeling of great accomplishment, pride and sustained motivation to lead by example as we continue to develop the company for the future.
