Our Safety Culture
At EAS Companies, we are guided by the belief that people matter. As a result, we are driven by a continuous improvement mindset for safety excellence - our Courage to Care. Our safety culture is led by business leadership and safety teams working to develop and reinforce programs tailored to each business unit and department. Our data-driven approach, use of leading technology, and strategies for sustainable development directly impact the safety of our customers and teammates.
Our Safety Approach
Sustainable, safe work practices are fundamental to our daily success. We partner with our customers to drive our safety programs and initiatives in tandem with their safety programs to ensure that we all make it home safe to our families each day.
Our data-driven, customized safety programs increase quality and productivity, decrease schedule changes and labor time, and improve safety and security for our customers and teammates.
Our Safety Team
Our safety team is comprised of 33 safety professionals with the knowledge base and skills to manage the safety results of our businesses and departments. Our primary goal is to provide employees with specialized training and ongoing development opportunities. The team focuses on safety awareness training, which includes discussions on best practices to help employees perform their work safely, recognize hazards, and mitigate safety-related risks. Attention to data allows us to identify safety-related incidents and implement corrective measures to prevent potential safety concerns that may affect workplace and worker safety.
5x5 Safety Awareness Program
Our 5 X 5 program asks that an employee take five steps back and 5 seconds to assess the risks associated with the task before starting a work task. We must always be on the lookout for dangers in our jobs, and this program has proven effective in preventing injuries.
