Safety

At Environmental Management (EMI) we know the most important assets are our employees.  We take a deep stake in safety, which goes from the President all the way to any entry level position.   We have several degreed safety professionals on staff and EMI takes great pride in ensuring the safest work environment possible.  EMI has developed many methodologies that strive not just for compliance with safety regulations, but exceed safety standards and raise the bar for safety expectations.  The behavior based safety program that has been developed protects our employees, without slowing production of work projects.  On each project we conduct a pre-job safety meeting and a daily safety meeting, which encourages every team member to take part.  Safety is a team effort at EMI which every employee is responsible for.

Emergency Response – As an emergency response company, we know that every situation is different. We are able to think fast and include hazards associated with all known chemicals, too provide the safest work environment possible.

Short Service Employee (SSE) program – All employees who have been with EMI for six months or less we have a SSE program.  This program allows us to assign different, well qualified, mentors to help guide new hires through different safety functions.  During this time new employees are never allowed to work any safety sensitive function without direct supervision.

Field Supervisors – All field supervisors have, without a doubt, shown they have a strong commitment to all safety and health programs.  All of our Field Supervisors are able to perform and explain how to do any job task safely.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – When an emergency occurs, PPE is the only protection available to our employees.  We provide PPE to our employees that exceed any safety regulation.  Our Project Managers have years of experience with hazardous materials and emergency response, and they know how to select the proper PPE to protect our workers.
