Newry based marine outfitter, MJM Marine, has hosted a Health and Safety Seminar for employees, aimed at the reinforcing the importance of safety in the workplace and highlighting the impact of workplace accidents.

The event, which took place at Carnbane Business Park in Newry was led by a renowned motivational and health and safety presenter, James Gorry, from Kildare.

James suffered a workplace accident in 2005 in Dublin which left him paralysed. He subsequently had his right leg amputated in 2017 due to a lack of blood circulation. Despite this adversity, James draws on his personal experience and the trauma faced by those closest to him, to deliver health and safety seminars to businesses throughout Ireland.

Drawing on his own experiences, James delivered a thought-provoking and impactful presentation during which he reminded MJM Marine employees about the unambiguous need for health and safety in the workplace; the importance of risk awareness and continued vigilance in carrying out daily tasks; and the personal responsibility that each employee must take for their own safety while working under MJM Marine’s Health and Safety policy. James’ key message is that every individual has a choice to make in every situation.

James Gorry shared his story of the life-changing impact a workplace accident had on him and his family with employees at MJM Marine.

Gavin McKevitt, MJM Marine Contracts Director said, “Health & Safety in the workplace is of the utmost importance to MJM Marine. As the company is expanding, so too is our approach to Health & Safety culture and awareness amongst our people.

“James Gorry’s story is truly shocking but very motivational.  We are thankful that he took the time out to give our employees a “real-life” reminder of what can happen when safety guidelines are not implemented; and to highlight the devastating consequences which accidents can leave behind, not just to the victim but to their wider family circle.”

MJM Marine works on some of the world’s largest cruise ships in locations all around the world.  In 2018, the company completed 38 project and is currently expanding to meet the ongoing demands of business.

Gavin continued, “MJM Marine has a strong Health & Safety record which is something we work hard to maintain.  Engaging with our employees is vitally important to ensure that we take collective responsibility for health and safety. By sharing James Gorry’s story with our employees, we have heightened awareness and increased vigilance of the risks associated with working in the marine industry.”
