We are in the people business and we know that people are fallible. We always choose prevention, but we realize that mistakes will happen. The question becomes do we have the capacity to absorb failure without causing harm. To be ready, we will plan and execute work assuming that failure could happen at any moment. We will learn from each job, each mistake and success – to continue getting better in every aspect. Safety is not the complete absence of injuries – it is the presence of capacity. Safety is not just a policy – safety is the core of who we are and always at the forefront of our focus.
The safety of our team and preventing harm to the environment for future generations is our goal. Simply put, HEALTH, SAFETY, AND ENVIRONMENTAL IS OUR STANDARD and we back it up every day, on every jobsite.
Our mission is to:
Our ultimate goal is to have prevent Incidents from occurring—and we know that an aware, well-trained workforce is a safe, competent and productive workforce. We train every employee to the highest industry standard, arming them with knowledge and techniques to work safely, prevent accidents and protect the environment. Our proactive commitment to safety has consistently earned Performance Energy Services an industry best safety record.
The Energy Wheel concept will be used to equip the worker to recognize sources of energy, discuss and determine controls needed, ultimately ensuring the Job Briefing process focuses on significant potential hazards unique to each activity and job.
It’s important for crews to start focusing on STKY scenarios that could occur on their jobsite. Significant events are a result of a release or transfer of energy that can’t be absorbed safely. When high-energy exposure exists, we must have capacity to fail safely.
STKY discussions are informal chats with crews about the stuff that can kill them on the jobsite. These discussions focus on identifying STKY discussions, determining what controls are in place that build capacity within the work, allowing them to fail safely, then asking, “Is that enough?”. STKY discussions highlight the hazards within our industry that have a history of killing individuals (electric contact, driving, struck by/line of fire, etc). Compliance-based safety talk is not part of these discussions. Rather, they are focused on high-energy hazards that are present on the jobsite.
STKYa – An actual STKY injury that results in one of the following three outcomes:
The goal of our Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival for people who have sudden cardiac arrests.
The AED program is designed to provide equipment and training to enhance life safety response measures. AEDs make it possible for trained and untrained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
We deploy an AED on every job site across North America. We go above the industry standards and hold ourselves to the Quanta standard. Our AED program has so far saved 28 lives (including several civilians) and continues to be a life-saving success for our workforce and communities across North America and beyond.
