MSD Animal Health
Finalist - ACC Workplace Safety
Vet's Best Friend
MSD Animal Health produces a wide range of animal vaccines at two sites in Upper Hutt, with approximately 85% exported overseas.
With 130 staff working on-site and numerous hazards ranging from chemical and biological substance to working in confined spaces, the company’s top priority is safety.
“We’ve spent the last decade integrating safety into everything we do,” HS&E Manager Matt Lister (pictured) says. “Safety is very visible at our facilities. Every meeting, from the shop floor to the monthly site meeting, takes the first minute to talk about safety. It’s our way of life.”
The company has a Tertiary level accreditation under the ACC WSMP programme, meeting all of the NZ standards for safety processes and many international best practices.
