Safety is a way of life at Pacific States and is integrated into everything we do. We are committed to providing a workplace that is free from any recognized hazards and we will do everything within our power to ensure that our employees go home to their loved ones and families in the same condition in which they came to work.
Our safety department consists of four full time safety professionals and two administrators who set the stage for safety by conducting training classes, site surveys, accident investigations, and consultations with field personnel. Our career safety professionals have academic and technical training in occupational health, industrial hygiene, and health physics. Our safety staff has technical training and specialization in areas including remediation, mass excavation, demolition, emergency response and toxic cleanups.
Each year at our corporate training facility, in-house instructors and outside professionals conduct extensive training in construction and environmental safety. All Pacific States management, staff and on-site work force have completed a 40-hour OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) training. We require annual HAZWOPER updates, annual physicals, and medical surveillance programs including a comprehensive drug and alcohol-screening program.
