Environmental Health & Safety
As a family owned and operated company, ensuring each employees’ safe arrival home following a workday is of paramount importance at Haugland Group. Positioning Environmental Health and Safety is at the forefront of its business operations. Each day, every employee strives to make a difference; and together, we constantly improve our organization’s safety culture.
All Haugland Group divisions endeavor to build the safest, most environmentally friendly projects, while adapting to changing industry standards, varied field operations and the world around us. Project-specific Health and Safety Plans (HASPs) serve as an essential tool, guiding each project from kick off to completion. All HASPs incorporate Owner/Project-specific requirements, and are collaborated on by our management, operations, and safety teams, as well as our subcontractors. Throughout all project phases, task-specific Job Hazard Analyses are developed to assist with Environmental Health and Safety impacts during high hazard tasks.
Haugland Group’s industry-best safety department, working in unison with Risk Management, measures the effectiveness of its program using leading and lagging indicators, reporting several monthly indicators for each division, comparing them against OSHA and BLS national averages, then adjusting and focusing training needs where necessary. As a result, while our manhours increase, our OSHA numbers continue to decrease and are all well below the national averages.
NECA has awarded Haugland Group its “Safety Excellence” and “Zero Injury” honors in the years noted below. NECA’s Recognition of Safety Achievement program is an elite safety acknowledgement, identifying companies that excel in multiple areas of safety and health programs. Those awarded are member companies that implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance, and consistently demonstrate OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard.
