MY SAFETY Means Educated Employees

Recognizing that a trained workforce is vital to minimizing accidents, we provide all our employees with the training needed to properly and safely perform their jobs. Employees participate in the My Safety Leadership workshop, behavioral-based safety training that encourages discussion and resolution of real-life job scenarios.

Field operations leaders receive between 40 and 100 hours of safety training. This training is designed to create safety advocates who are empowered to act responsibly and encourage the same behavior in their staff. The result is a team of employees that is knowledgeable, confident and capable of managing safety at the project location.

COMMUNICATION IS KEY

Our leaders know that good communication is one of the best ways to prevent incidents. They conduct daily safety sessions and hold comprehensive safety talks and meetings.

Additionally, to prepare for real-world experience, highly participatory workshops engage employees in a variety of safety-related scenarios.
