VERTEX MAINTAINS A CONSTANT EMPHASIS ON HEALTH & SAFETY
VERTEX prioritizes Health & Safety (H&S) in all that we do. We go well beyond protocols and checklists to empower every colleague with the tools necessary to be safety leaders. We want this for our company, for our colleagues, for our clients and vendors. We strive for zero incidents of all types by providing constant education and training, engineering controls, and personal protective equipment for all tasks whether in the field or in the office. We nurture an environment that promotes ownership of H&S on the job and encourages the same off the job. Our Management Site Visit observations work to reinforce these practices with effective mentorship. From PPE to employee programs, we vow to provide Health & Safety education, work practices, and leadership in everything we do.
OUR SAFETY PHILOSOPHY
Our H&S philosophy is simple: everyone has the right to return home healthy and safely at the end of each day. We believe that fostering a culture of H&S excellence prevents incidents of all kinds – safety, quality, environmental, etc.
We believe that H&S is a collective responsibility, and every colleague is a safety leader. Our colleagues are provided with the necessary tools, training, and resources to make informed decisions and take proactive steps to prevent incidents.
H&S is not a destination; it’s a journey. We are dedicated to continuously improving our H&S practices through ongoing collaboration with our leadership and colleagues, providing education, regular safety observations, and embracing best practices in the industry.
PARTNERING FOR HEALTH & SAFETY
We understand that H&S extends beyond our team to include our clients, partners, and families. We work collaboratively to ensure that H&S is a shared value throughout every project and in our offices. Our Monthly H&S Webinars and annual Global H&S Day events promote themes and provide technical and wellness information that can bridge the gap between our H&S expectations at work and at home.
A Healthier and SAFER TOMORROW
At VERTEX, we are not only committed to H&S today, but also to a safer tomorrow. Our dedication to Health and Safety is not a “requirement,” it’s a promise we keep to our colleagues, the clients we serve, and the communities in which we work and live.
Our Comprehensive Programs
Our Health and Safety program covers a wide range of critical topics to ensure the well-being of our colleagues, clients, and partners.
At VERTEX, “health” and “safety” are more than buzzwords; it’s our culture, our commitment to a safer and healthier workplace for everyone. Our comprehensive program is a testament to this commitment.
