Health and Safety
As a firm and as a team of individuals, Hart & Hickman operates from the principle that all accidents are avoidable. Through our continuous emphasis on proper preparation and safe work practices, our employees promote and monitor a safety-conscious culture, which is practiced not only in the field and at the office, but embraced in everyday life. Each of our employees has ‘stop-work’ authority if they observe unsafe behaviors on our job sites or in our work place. If it can’t be done safely, we don’t do it. In addition to on-the-job safety training, all field personnel receive 40-hour Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Training, and annual 8-hour refresher courses. Our field personnel undergo annual physicals, drug & alcohol testing, and background checks for driver safety. Our company vehicles are equipped with driver safety monitoring devices to ensure we are practicing safe driving behaviors.
