Our Commitment to Safety

Our Commitment

The safety of our personnel and that of our partners is fundamental to every project PipeWay Energy Construction Inc. takes on. Our commitment begins with the careful selection of professionals specifically experienced in underground utility construction. This commitment to safety is demonstrated by continual training and strict adherence to safety guidelines.

Preparation & Planning

Careful planning, and phasing are incorporated into each project to minimize disruptions, integrate the work within the context of the surrounding area, and most importantly, keep the client facilities, personnel, and pedestrians safe and operational during the project implementation.

We Hold Ourselves to the Highest Standards

To prevent injuries to people and damage to property and equipment, PipeWay Energy Construction Inc. ensures all assigned personnel, subcontractors, and visitors are protected by the highest possible health, safety, security, and environmental standards, and that all applicable concerns are adequately addressed before the project begins.

Risk Mitigation & Accident Prevention

We implement a process on each project to reduce exposure to risk. Daily crew huddles review the planned work, review current site conditions, clarify what is expected of each crew member, and voice concerns. Foremen are responsible for equipment and tag out anything that is worn or defective. Crew are expected to have each other’s welfare as a priority.

Accidents on the job can easily lead to injury, and delays and damage to property and equipment. That’s why risk mitigation is held to the utmost importance. No lost time is the objective, but if accidents still occur, we make the effort to return employees back to modified duty positions as quickly as possible.
