Providing a safe and healthy workplace is a fundamental business responsibility, and one that CES takes very seriously. We are fully committed to the continuing development of a strong company-wide health and safety culture focused on preventing and correcting hazards and safety concerns before an injury occurs.
CES strives to deliver safe and error-free products and services to its customers. We have supplemented our comprehensive environment, health, and safety (EHS) programs with the Westinghouse Human Performance (Human Performance fundamentals) program to help them achieve operational excellence through world-class EHS performance.
CES employs HuP to motivate its personnel to carry out tasks in a safe and responsible manner, which values the prevention of errors instead of simply focusing on regulatory compliance. CES personnel are therefore trained to be “constructively intrusive” — to always be ready to proactively intervene in a positive manner for their personal safety and for the safety of colleagues. Employees are empowered to stop in the face of uncertainty or if in unsafe conditions. Similarly, CES leadership provides continuous appropriate reinforcement and coaching of these behaviors.
CES also has a certified instructor to enable us to qualify personnel to OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 standards. All of our personnel are subjected to safety and HuP training and testing prior to being placed in the field. Additionally, all personnel are required to pass a rigorous security background investigation and fitness-for-duty testing prior to employment. Through this process, CES has achieved Occupational Safety and Health Administration incidence rates (TRIR, ISAR) that are well below the national averages for its industry.
