No one wants something bad to happen at work but it’s critical to be prepared for it. At CJK, our emergency preparedness process ensures our teams are ready to react. Our First Aid Responders, Fire Safety Managers and Risk Management Specialists ensure that we have sufficient training and resources to respond to emergencies and mobilise our business continuity plan.
Working at height is one of the biggest causes of death in the construction industry so it’s essential to CJK that we provide in-house at height training in our unique training facility based in Dublin.
Our training facility provides quality in-house training that allows all of our project teams to work safely at height across all of our sites in Ireland.
A key mission of CIF Safety Week is to reinforce the Covid-19 prevention message. Given the new government restrictions that will take place from midnight tonight - this is now more important than ever.
Construction workers need to maintain an extra level of caution due to Covid-19 related hazards on top of all of the pre-existing hazards across sites. Yesterday, our team at our Spencer North project attended a Covid-19 meeting talk that was hosted by PJ Hegarty & Sons.
We’re proud to play our part in ensuring that the construction industry remains open and we will continue to ensure safety and efficiency on all of our sites.
At CJK we understand that working in construction has many hazards and it’s our responsibility to minimise these risks and to protect our employee’s health. Our ultimate goal is to create a healthy and safe environment for all to work in. We promote a culture where we are continuously working with colleagues and others to strengthen our awareness of Occupational Health and Safety.

CJK is proud to be a partner of this year's Construction Safety Week 2020. We sat down with CJK's QHES Manager, Fergus Foran, and asked him about today's safety theme "Mental Health, Welfare and Wellbeing in Construction".
CJK is delighted to announce that the money raised on the day of the CJK Dún Laoghaire Harbour Race, along with the sales of the Leinster Open Sea Calendar, is going to such great charities - Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and St.Luke's Hospital Rathgar. The money was raised by the Leinster Open Sea Swimming Community and was presented to the charities last week.
It's amazing to be involved with such great organisations and to be able to aid them in the fantastic work that they do. We are still so impressed by all the swimmers and would like to say a big thank you to them for their tremendous efforts on the day and throughout the season
Today is World Mental Health Day and now more than ever, CJK understand the importance of the wellbeing of our employees. As such, we offer our employees an Employee Assistance Programme which is an independent and confidential service to help employees identify and resolve their personal problems.
CJK has also achieved the KeepWell Mark - the first electrical contractor in Ireland to do so. The Mark is a set of health and wellbeing standards that companies can achieve through the promotion of wellbeing in the workplace. Our employee’s mental health are a key focus for CJK and our goal is to create an environment where our employees can become the best that they can be.
