ECT is committed to safety and is a proud member of ISNetworld, the global resource for connecting corporations with safe, reliable contractors. Ongoing occupational safety training is a requirement of all project staff, and compliance with ECT’s Corporate Health and Safety Program is a safety performance metric against which staff members are evaluated annually.
Site-Specific Health & Safety Plans (HASPs) – ECT designs individual HASPs to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) and establish the additional requirements necessary to protect the health and safety of all personnel working at a particular site.
Key plan elements include:
- Blood-borne pathogen exposure control
- Subcontractor management
- Hazard communication
- Hearing conservation
- Personal protective equipment
- Welding, cutting, and hot work
- Respiratory protection
All ECT field personnel on sites where hazardous substances are known or presumed to exist are enrolled in a medical monitoring program, which includes a baseline physical examination and surveillance examinations as recommended by qualified and licensed occupational health physicians.
All ECT personnel who work at sites where hazardous conditions exist are certified through OSHA-approved HAZWOPER training. Additionally, all such employees attend annual OSHA-approved 8-hour refresher courses, and are required to maintain an up-to-date Red Cross certification for CPR and first aid.
