Preventing accidents and maintaining safe working conditions

FEHRS provides the highest quality services to our customers by employing a team who is committed to superior Safety performance.  One of our most fundamental beliefs is that zero accidents are achievable; we reinforce this belief by working to continuously improve our Safety culture.

The target of operating with zero incidents is essential to the success and growth of our company and this will not vary, even when others may have different priorities.  To ensure our company is always aligned with this goal, our corporate SAFETY expectations shall be grounded in the following basic principles:

  • All Safety incidents are preventable
  • Delivery of Safety performance is everyone’s responsibility
  • Working safely is conditions of employment
  • Safety performance must be measured and actively managed
  • Leadership and management commitment are essential
  • Compliance with applicable laws and regulations is the starting point
  • Everyone has “Stop Work Authority” and is expected to use it

By these actions and with the full cooperation of all employees, we are the industry leader in Safety performance.

We at FEHRS believe that leadership is a prerequisite to establishing Safety as a core value in the workplace.  Our team demonstrated its commitment to Safety by conducting regular workplace inspections, accident investigations and by clearly defining Safety roles and responsibilities for our employees.  Managers are responsible for fostering a culture of Safety participation by encouraging each employee to become a workplace Safety leader.

Our Safety staff consists of OSHA 500 certification, 30 hour OSHA Construction Industry “train the trainer” certification, 30 hour OSHA General Industry “train the trainer” certification, and 10 hour OSHA certification.  Our Safety trainers make sure all employees receive extensive training in their field as well as cross train them in all areas so that they understand every aspect of each job.  We have a behavior based Safety program that encourages all employees to assess potential hazards around them and report them to management.
