Employee Safety

Safety is our priority every single day. Working as a team, each employee is responsible for ensuring that their coworkers return home safely at the end of the day – we take that responsibility seriously. Our intense focus on safety benefits our suppliers, shareholders, coworkers, and customers. We are committed to preserving a safe and healthy workplace for all our team members in every situation and role. We know it takes hard work to be a leading inspection and integrity provider. That's why we're committed to maintaining the safest possible work environments in all our operations.

All our employees take responsibility for safety in everything they do daily including compliance with widely held standards of workplace safety, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, employee feedback and periodical evaluations. Safety begins on an individual level and our employees take ownership and are responsible for their own well-being and that of the people around them.
