On September 11, 2012 a five-member SGS safety team conducted a one-time comprehensive safety audit of the entire project. The key audit findings were then presented by the SGS inspection team and an interim report was submitted to MMOPL senior project management in a close-out meeting on September 12. MMOPL immediately implemented major recommendations outlined in the initial SGS safety audit. Impressed by the quality of SGS audit observations, MMOPL project managers solicited SGS safety engineers to continuously monitor project safety on a full-time basis. On September 17, a dedicated full-time team of ten SGS safety engineers was deployed and, after consultation with MMOPL, subsequently increased to fourteen.
