Celebrating Safety Stars

Three Leixlip based employees selected as Intel Safety Stars

World Day for Safety and Health at Work took place on April 28th and to coincide with the global celebration Intel recognised a number of safety stars from our sites around the world.

Amongst those recognised as Safety Stars were three Leixlip based employees who were selected for their innovations, impact, execution, and going above and beyond so they and their colleagues go home safe and healthy every day.

  • Brian McGrane, from Sallins in Co. Kildare, was recognised for being a role model in ergonomic injury prevention. Brian has tackled more than 300 pieces of equipment and works across departments to share and remove ergonomic hazards. Brian has worked across a number of different departments to help introduce fixes that he has developed and implemented, ensuring that his passion for safety has an impact across the whole organisation.
  • Johnny Marron, who is originally from Co. Monaghan, has worked to find better processes to prevent injury. Johnny worked with suppliers and employees to design and deliver material handling systems on Wet Etch tools to prevent injury. Johnny has gone above and beyond not only to prevent injury and ensure a safe working environment for his direct colleagues, but for his colleagues in other departments across Intel’s global network.
  • Colm Daly, who lives in Co. Offaly, developed creative safety activities to prevent ergonomic injuries and help his team learn at the same time. Colm’s attitude has always been “Safety tomorrow is a day too late” and he has role modeled excellent safety leadership both at a site and global level, successfully ensuring that all Intel sites are compliant to ergonomics and well being best practices by implementing global structures and engaging activities.

Congratulations to each of our Leixlip based Safety Stars who have been role models for Intel’s commitment to provide a safe, injury-free workplace.
