Over the past two decades, engineers, biologists, geologists, and other environmental specialists restored Guadalupe’s ecosystem while adhering to the most current and best safe work practices.
Health and Safety Management- ‘Safety built around our work and work built around our safety’. The the Health, Environment and Safety Program ensured that all employees worked in a controlled and safe environment while being in compliance with all government regulations. Every morning at the Guadalupe site, all staff met 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, began with a Job Safety Analysis that addressed obstacles that the employees could face or that could affect their performance. The team was empowered with ‘Stop Work’ authority and had a voice when it came to protecting lives from potential hazardous activities. The employees also participated in a Behavioral-Based Safety Program that allowed them to proactively improve work habits while capturing at-risk factors in job tasks. Any potential hazards that could potentially be of industry-wide consideration were published and shared in what are referred to as SOSs (See It, Own It, Share It) events.
