“Safety First” is more than a cliché workplace slogan; it’s an attitude that permeates all parts of our organization.
This mindset is cemented into our corporate culture at every opportunity. We set this tone by kicking off all meetings with a “safety moment” to educate and reinforce coworkers on a relevant safety topic, promoting proactive hazard assessment and accident prevention. We strive for staff to take this mindset even into their personal lives because no matter what, they are our #1 asset.
Our staff Certified Industrial Hygienist and Certified Safety Professional develops, approves, and enforces our health and safety processes and procedures, which are updated regularly. From near miss analysis to post-incident investigations, we are continually working toward our goal of a 100% safe workplace 100% of the time, whether in the office, on the road, or at a client’s site. Stell consistently maintains an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of < 1.0..
Our “Safety First” attitude is further reinforced with an extensive corporate health and safety plan, project-specific safety plans, tailgate meetings at project sites, an active safety committee that does job safety analysis, and safety incentive rewards.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response training, physicals for field staff, emergency action plans for each office, first aid, CPR and blood-borne pathogen training, and an annual safe driving campaign also highlight safety as a priority.
Safety is more important than convenience so we take the time and commit the resources to ensure our most valuable resources, our people, are exposed to as little risk as possible. With our “Safety First” culture being incorporated into every project, we also mitigate safety risks for our clients.
