Safety Standards

We recognize that our people are our best asset, and their safety both in the field and out, is our top priority.

Our Safety History

Since being founded in 2003, we have only had 4 recordable incidents. Our immaculate safety record is due to our unified, aggressive approach to safety. This includes several layers of management working with field personnel, thorough training that incorporates hands-on practice, and low-service employee procedures to make sure that the most experienced operators are doing the most critical jobs. We routinely experience a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of a perfect “0”.

We also routinely run a Days Away/Restricted or Job Transfer Rate (DART) percentage of “0”. We have never had an injury that caused lost work time, adjustment or rescheduled work, or transfer to another job. This has allowed us to average 0.71 Experience Modification Rate (EMR) for the first 12-years of our company history, with our first Worker’s Compensation Claim occurring in 2015. Our EMR is currently 0.71 for 2019.
