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, and comprehensive regulatory training. Most importantly, it mandates that safety be considered first when planning any task or project. Our consistent and comprehensive approach to safety has earned an Experience Modification Rate (EMR) of 0.82 for 2019.

With frequent safety training and consistent communications, our staff can confidently develop and efficiently implement field tasks with safety as a priority.  On site, Peak’s staff has responsibility for our safety, and the authority to enforce Peak’s safety plans. 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 when necessary.

Our extensive safety program and the extended industry experience of our project managers provides our clients with the knowledge that their safety concerns and procedures are understood and addressed, the confidence that Peak is acting responsibly with regard to safety on their facilities, and that they have a reliable source for safety support at their own operations.
