At EWI, our goal is to protect our most valuable asset – our people. EWI is a member of ISN, a global resource that connects corporations with safe contractors, and Avetta (formerly PICS), a renowned supplier risk management organization.
Maintaining an outstanding safety program takes time, dedication, and commitment. Our management team is invested in the continual growth of our safety program; additionally, EWI’s entire team undergoes routine safety training that far exceeds OSHA training requirements. Whether it’s in the boardroom or in the field, EWI’s policies are designed to prevent injuries and accidents while complying with environmental and safety mandates.
Our Safety Code
Everyone deserves to be surrounded by safe, responsible teammates. Our people protect and support each other; however, each team member is ultimately responsible for their own safety and for immediately reporting unsafe conditions, near misses, and injuries. Safety training is provided, yet each individual is responsible for understanding and applying what they learned.
There is no hierarchy in safety. From their first day on the job, all team members have the authority and responsibility to halt a job if they see a safety concern.
If a team member is creating or allowing an unsafe working condition, we confront them quickly and respectfully. Safety hazards are not downplayed or exaggerated, and each safety issue is resolved logically and promptly.
At EWI, we learn from our mistakes. For that reason, we don’t hide or cover up safety issues. We share and openly discuss safety concerns and near misses with the whole team.
Exposing yourself or others to danger and risk will directly impact your ability to advance at EWI. If a team member does not take safety seriously, they will be coached to improve but ultimately replaced.
