Engineering & Construction
With global construction set to grow faster than the world economy over the next decade, opportunities will abound in the sector. At the same time, increasing project risk and complexity demand that organisations in the E & C space pay closer attention to their compliance obligations than ever before.
Established in 1968, Bowen Construction Ltd. is a diversified full-service Irish Building and Civil Engineering Contractor with offices in Cork, Dublin, Belfast, Limerick and Waterford and is a member of The Bowen Group. The company has annual sales approaching ’300M, placing them among the largest construction companies in Ireland.

Emex Incident & Claims Management will also be implemented ensuring all key health & safety information is being centralised in a single database improving the company’s reporting capabilities and helping to reduce the cost of administration.
McLaughlin & Harvey Ltd.
McLaughlin & Harvey Ltd., one of Northern Ireland’s largest building and civil engineering contractors, selected the Emex platform to automate core compliance and Health and Safety activities. McLaughlin & Harvey use Emex Audits to monitor suppliers, using the advanced reporting capabilities of the system to track trends in supplier compliance. The company can thereby respond quickly to instances of non-conformance, and the link between the Audit and Accident module has enabled the company to identify responsibility for incidents more easily.
Kilsaran needed to create a central repository to manage the compliance to health and safety legislation. It was identified that one central system needed to be implemented in order to locate, report and analyse data relating to claims, training and accidents and incidents. By implementing Emex they can provide data to various departments without having to email/fax etc. this has lead to a reduction the number of hard copy files kept on site.
