VES Safety Culture
Our engaged leadership embraces a Proactive Safety and Human Performance Culture that is embedded in our processes and values’. It empowers individuals, alerts them to hazards and allows them to maintain positive control of their work through identification and execution of the critical steps of their tasks. Our proactive safety culture’s number one goal is everyone goes home safely each and every day.
VES Proactive Safety Approach:
VES is committed to provide all employees with the tools to proactively prevent unwanted events before they occur.
Proactive Safety Programs:
- Our “Stop the Job” program leaves no uncertainty about an individual’s authority to “Stop a Job” to resolve identified hazards, evaluate warning signs and to ask questions and discuss uncertainties. This is accomplished with training and by providing insight as to why individuals tend to work through stopping points.
- Good Catch and Near Miss program allows for prompt reporting and a proactive approach to sharing information and feedback on all good catches and near misses. We will perform a root cause analysis on a near miss independent of the client’s driver to improve our processes and eliminate the possibility of a similar occurrence. All good catch and near miss reports are recognized, communicated and rewarded with positive feedback
- Our Job Site Safety Assessment Program engages our leadership team to access our regulatory compliance, self-access leadership effectiveness and gauge the morale and culture of our site teams. This allows us to “Know” what we may otherwise “might not know”
If an unplanned event does occur:
- VES believes that we owe our employees and our clients to perform a thorough root cause analysis to identify causal factors and establish the true root cause. This allows for us to implement clear, concise and workable corrective actions as well as provide a platform to focus on continuous improvement.
