Services: Health and Safety Management
Client: Chevron Environmental Management Company

Health and Safety Management- ‘Safety built around our work and work built around our safety’. The role of the Health, Environment and Safety Program is to ensure all employees are working in a controlled and safe environment while being in compliance with all government regulations. Every morning at the Guadalupe site, all staff meet in the ‘One Team Safety Room’ to discuss daily tasks and to engage in a safety discussion. All tasks on-site, routine or one-of-a-kind, begin with a Job Safety Analysis that addresses obstacles that the employees may face or that may affect their performance. The team is empowered with ‘Stop Work’ authority and has a voice when it comes to protecting lives from potential hazardous activities. The employees also participate in a Behavioral-Based Safety Program that allows them to proactively improve work habits while capturing at-risk factors in job tasks. Any potential hazards that can potentially be of industry-wide consideration are published and shared in what are referred to as SOSs (See It, Own It, Share It).
