It always is an impressive gathering of our teams where sharing, empowering, learning from each other and cross-divisional networking are on the agenda. With volunteers like you, we have a chance to make this world a better place!

The MSD Gives Back Day is a unique opportunity to get away from daily routine and do good for our  society.

Some of the activities may take place outside. An alternative activity cannot always be provided. Spending the day outside in less ideal conditions is also part of the experience

Can I take pictures?

If you would like to take pictures, you can. We suggest you ask the permission of your local project coordinator first out of respect for the privacy of the organization’s guests or clients. Never take pictures of children without the explicit permission of the organization.

What should I do in case of an occupational accident?

In case of an occupational accident, you will be insured by Time4Society’s insurance (and not MSD’s work injury insurance). If this happens to be the case, immediately contact your local project coordinator. He will decide what steps need to be taken. He will also immediately report the injury or accident to Time4Society.

Clothing that can get dirty, work gloves and suitable footwear, e.g. boots, walking shoes, high tops, etc. Wear long sleeves/long trousers for your safety.


The necessary equipment and materials will be available on the spot, unless specifically indicated otherwise. Disposable overalls will be provided for painting activities.
