SAFETY

At Envirotrol, safety is our top priority. We are supported by a full-time team of safety professionals with a host of programs and employee training to ensure every member of our team is safe on any site. 

We focus on accident prevention, not just OSHA compliance. Our philosophy is to create an accident-free environment through leadership, communication, and motivation.

 

Our goal is to eliminate unsafe acts and conditions that might cause personal injury, and staying committed and involved keeps our workplace and job sites injury free. We take pride in maintaining one of the lowest EMRs in the industry, 0.61, which is well below the industry standard of 1.0.

TRAINING & PROCEDURES

  • Hazard control includes preventive measures such as periodic workplace inspections and injury prevention training. 
     

  • Pre-job safety meetings are held to learn all job safety requirements.  In addition, a company safety meeting is held to establish loss control measures and to arrange for proper protective equipment and materials.  
     

  • New employee safety orientation class and drug screening.
     

  • Field Superintendents have successfully completed a 10 hour OSHA Outreach Training Course for Construction and the American Red Cross Standard First Aid/AED training.
     

  • Regular “Tool Box” safety meetings to discuss the work for the week, any special safety precautions or equipment needed to complete these tasks, and any concerns the employees may have in regards to safety. 
     

  • Envirotrol managers attend a spring and fall safety weekend in conjunction with our corporate partners each year. 
     

  • Via the iAuditor app, our team frequently performs job site audits and can report "near miss" incidents when an accident was avoided

  • Our Courage to CARE pledge is taken by every employee upon hiring, which is their promise to themselves and each other that everyone will go home safe to their families every day

Through our partnership with Comfort Systems USA, we have adopted the 5x5 technique. The 5x5 safety initiative is to "Take 5 seconds and 5 steps back" to think about the surroundings and work area to make sure it is a safe work environment.
