Our safety program is behavior-based and fully compliant with OSHA and state regulations. All Pluim Environmental 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.
Unique to each project, Pluim Environmental utilizes site-specific Health and Safety Plans (HASP).
The HASP typically address the following areas:
•Safety and Health Responsibilities
•General Site Safety and Health Rules
•Confined Space Entry
•Dust Control Program
•Emergency Response, Evacuation, and Contingency Planning
•First Aid and Heat Stress
•Hearing Conservation and Noise Control
•Personal Protective Equipment
•Site Security and Site Control
•Welding and Cutting Operation
Pluim Environmental uses initial, weekly, and daily health and safety meetings to provide project-specific information to field staff. The field superintendent is responsible for accessing hazards on a daily basis.
Performance is also improved through accident and near-miss investigations so that preventative measures can be taken immediately. Root cause analyses are used to find the underlying cause of a problem. Pluim Environmental employees are expected to work safely without exception.
