Safety Culture


We believe that no job is so important that we cannot take the time to perform it safely. Our commitment to safety is a core value of the company, and it is ingrained into every aspect of our culture.

We equip our team members with Human Performance Improvement (HPI) tools to empower employees to speak up for safety, and our OSHA training requirements for each team member exceed industry standards.

At Enerfab, we are building a safety culture – an environment where employees are stakeholders in safety, believing that safety is everyone’s responsibility. True safety success comes when employees and teams operate independently and then interdependently to care for each other.

We believe in this culture from the executive leadership to the skilled worker on the shop floor or the customers’ job site.

Human Performance Improvement

  1. STOP – Every employee has the right, and the responsibility, to stop and ask about any task or activity they feel uncertain about or have a safety concern about.
  2. Peer Checking – We encourage every employee to take a moment and ask for a second opinion about how a task is being performed.
  3. Job Safety Analysis (JSA) – At the beginning of every shift in the shop or every task in the field, we complete and discuss a JSA listing the anticipated activities, the hazards associated with the take, the Most Error Likely Association (MELA) list and plans for avoiding those errors and hazards.
  4. Questioning Attitude & Verifying – We empower employees to question the way that they conduct a task, even questioning a supervisor to confirm the safest procedure.
  5. Two-minute Drill – After a break or interruption of work, employees take a few minutes to review the environment, look for new hazards or changes and double check the task set-up.
  6. Procedure Use – Each task has a documented process for it to be completed safely. We train employees on those procedures.
  7. Three-way Communication – Employees are trained in a communication technique that includes repeating and restating messages to improve clarify and confirm understanding.
  8. Employee Intervention – Every team member has an obligation to stop an unsafe activity that they witness, to correct, coach or communicate with a supervisor. Just as importantly, they are expected to present the intervention in a way that will be received, without being confrontational.

OSHA Training

  1. All Enerfab employees must have completed at least a 10-hour OSHA training class.
  2. Field engineers, timekeepers, project managers, supervisors and management team members, including all Enerfab team members on a job site, must complete at least a 30-hour OSHA training class.
  3. Craft workers on our job sites and projects must have at least a 10-hour OSHA completion, and those in supervisory roles, such as general foreman, must have a 30-hour course completion.
  4. All Enerfab safety professionals have an OSHA 510 course certificate, OSHA 500 Outreach Trainer certification or a 4-year degree in Occupational Safety and Health. At Enerfab, rarely use third-party representatives for safety management, enhancing consistency and accountability to our safety procedures.
