Safety

Our Commitment to Safety

Across our operations, our commitment to safety is reflected in our common goal to eliminate all workplace incidents. Our commitment to safety is the foundation of our strong safety culture, can be seen in reduced injuries and lost-work days, and has served as a leading indicator of our strong performance throughout all aspects of our projects. Our commitment to safety also is demonstrated by:
 

Team of Professionals

HEPACO employs a team of full time health and safety professionals that routinely communicate with the entire team on safety alerts any time a near miss or actual incident occurs to proactively bring awareness education.
 

KPI Statistical Review

We maintain a KPI dashboard for safety statistics and details of any incidents, allowing our site managers to monitor and continue to improve safety performance.
 

Regional Representation

HEPACO maintains regional health and safety representatives that report to the Corporate Director of Health and Safety on such matters.  Their role is to serve as a regional source of information for health and safety related topics and ensure uniformity across the five regions within the HEPACO organization.  We identified the need for this better regional representation and organizational consistency through our process safety management program.
  

Partners

HEPACO has sought out the assistance of its insurance carrier to request their help analyzing data, looking for trends, potential problem areas, etc. in hopes of preventing future accidents.  HEPACO is fortunate to have an outstanding relationship with our insurance partner and they have been extremely helpful in assisting HEPACO in its goal to eliminate accidents.
 

Routine Inspections

HEPACO has implemented an inspection team to conduct random inspections of HEPACO offices, warehouses, and project locations.  These random inspections are conducted and reports are generated with required recommendations for areas of improvement.
 

“Near Miss” Incident Reporting

Near miss incident reporting allows us to identify key performance indicators that are predictive in averting accidents.
 

Training

HEPACO continues to develop safety-related programs, training initiatives, guidelines, and other resources aimed at consistency in operations and eliminating accidents.
