Safety Policy Statement
Habitat Management believes that our most important asset is our employees and we are dedicated to keeping them safe. As such, there is no job so important that we will risk the safety or health of our employees to achieve it. We have a safety program that encourages employees to work safely and to report any concerns or incidents. We provide First Aid/ CPR training for all employees and all field employees are required to go through MSHA and any site or project specific training. Our project managers promote open communication with all field crews and all employees are empowered with Stop Work Authority to immediately address a safety issue. Our employees are required and encouraged to report any potential hazard or incident to the supervisor. Daily tailgate safety meetings are held before the start of work to discuss planned activities and a Job Safety Analysis for new activities. We take the health and safety of our employees very seriously and all incidents are thoroughly investigated to prevent reoccurrence.
As an environmental and natural resource management company, Habitat Management is grounded in environmental sustainability. It is not just our bread and butter, but also the basis for our business operations. We are dedicated to creating a clean and sustainable environment for future generations and strive to achieve internally by:
- Implementing recycling programs (for trash, office supplies and electronics)
- Reduce our resource consumption through such measures as use of electronic instead of paper deliverables, working with office lessors to reduce electricity use, office recycling, and working towards a “paperless” filing system
- Reduce unnecessary travel via the use of web-based meetings and seminars
- Offer flexible working arrangements to employees
We believe in being proactive leaders in achieving and maintaining a sustainable work environment that reduces our footprint and provides a healthy environment for future generations.
