Engineering & Construction


Managing health and safety on project sites and in remote areas carries unique challenges and requires a self-sufficient infrastructure. This includes site security and emergency medical care.

Due to these demanding work locations and complexities in the value chain, companies operating in the Engineering and Construction sectors face extraordinary challenges compared to other industries.

With a strong focus on prevention, International SOS works with you to build a holistic healthcare solution that evolves with your business. We support your business continuity agenda at all times, by providing timely and quality medical care to your employees, increasing their productivity, and reducing lost time injuries. We also provide security support to ensure your people remain safe, even in the most remote or hostile environments.

From preventing unnecessary recordable injuries, to retaining your employees, our capabilities ensure the wellbeing of your people is protected. We help reduce medical costs, enhance HSE performance and maximise your productivity.

Key Challenges faced by the Engineering & Construction Sector

  • 8.5%

    of all injuries resulting in lost days of work happen within the construction industry

  • +130,000

    construction workers missed days of work due to injuries in 2019

  • $40B

    paid each year by employers and their insurers in workers’ compensation benefits, or nearly $500 per covered employee

“We want to create an environment where our people are happy, healthy and safe; enabling everyone to achieve their full potential, thrive and feel empowered to take responsibility for and focus on their own health and wellbeing.”


Laura Hague, Group Safety Manager, Mott MacDonald
