Health & Safety
Peak’s people – hydrogeologists, geologists, environmental scientists, engineers, administrators, technicians, subcontractors – are its greatest strength and asset, and the continuing investment in them and the resources available to them are the primary basis for the success of Peak. To ensure the safety and health of our employees, Peak has developed a comprehensive safety program with the primary objective of embedding safety values into company culture. The program provides general safety and health awareness, detailed technical training for safety equipment, and comprehensive regulatory basis training for field staff. Most importantly, it mandates that safety be considered first when planning a task or project.
With consistent training and communications, our staff can confidently develop and efficiently implement field tasks with working safely being a priority. On site, Peak’s staff is trained to recognize potential hazards that could affect the safety of workers and are authorized to stop work and bring any potential hazards or unsafe conditions to the attention of management and if needed, the Client. Throughout a project, our staff works closely with our subcontractors and site operations personnel to identify and manage hazards prior to work and effectively adjust to changing field conditions, including stopping work if or when necessary.
Peak’s extensive safety program and the long time industry experience of our managers provide our clients with the confidence and knowledge that their safety procedures and concerns are understood and that Peak is a reliable source for safety support for their operations and will act responsibly regarding safety on their facilities.
