to the maximum extent possible.

or practices, to control health hazards, and to fully comply with OSHA safety and health standards for every job.

drug and alcohol free workplace through pre-employment screening, reasonable suspicion, and random drug screening. Our employees understand
that we have a zero tolerance policy in regard to drugs and alcohol in the work place.
We recognize that responsibilities for occupational
safety & health are shared:
Our management accepts responsibility for leadership of the safety and health program, for its effectiveness
and improvement, and for providing the safeguards required to ensure safe work conditions.
Supervisors are responsible for developing
proper attitudes toward safety and health in themselves and in those they supervise, and for ensuring that all operations are performed
with the utmost regard for the safety and health of all personnel involved, including themselves.
Employees are responsible for wholehearted,
genuine operations of all aspects of the safety and health program – including compliance with the rules and regulations – and for
continuously practicing safety and health while performing their duties.
With safety a core value, we nurture a culture that will protect
our employees and everyone who visits our work sites. We pride ourselves on protecting people, property, and the environment. That
is the commitment all of us at PWS make, to each other and our clients. Our Safety Program focuses on everything from preventative
maintenance to accident prevention. It addresses the responsibility, accountability, and discipline that we all share and accept as
the key to maintaining a safe, healthy, and productive workplace. We also utilize a hard-hat color-coding system, so every worker
knows each other's level of experience.
At PWS, we strive to continually improve in both safety and quality by being innovative
and bringing the most relevant information to our programs and challenging our people to be the best they can be in all ways of safety.
