We Build Safety In All We Do

Why does Enerfab care about safety? First and foremost, our mission is to send every employee home at the end of the day as healthy as they were when they arrived at work. A safe environment is a more productive environment, and one that serves the customer.

Our commitment to safety is evident in the way we work every day:

  • Safety Is A Core Value –  It’s a part of every project from the time we start a RFQ review, through estimating and bidding, pre-project planning, execution and closeout.
  • Human Performance Improvement – As people, we make mistakes. HPI recognizes this and provides 8 tools for every worker to use to enhance our safety environment. This program helps prevent mistakes, encourages people to think before making mistakes and lessens the impact of mistakes when they do happen.
  • OSHA Training – Every Enerfab employee, whether craft worker or accountant, has a minimum OSHA 10. Any management personnel with project oversight, including our field supervisors and foremen, have a minimum OSHA 30.
  • Contribution to Safety in the Industry – Safety isn’t a fad for Enerfab. Our team members have been involved in the development and execution of safety training programs for decades.

Safety as a Core Value

When safety is ingrained in your company culture, you conduct business differently. Having executive safety leadership, proper personal protective equipment (PPE), comprehensive safety manuals, daily safety meetings and site-specific safety plans become standard operating procedure. We keep safety top of mind by requiring every meeting, with at least three Enerfab employees or more, begin with a safety message.

Safety is also a critical element in our lean construction approach and continuous improvement platform, known as e3 Project Execution. Each phase of e3 has established safety processes, plans and considerations. No project moves through the e3 steps to completion without safety embedded in the process.

Human Performance Improvement (HPI)

HPI Tools are designed to empower employees to speak up for safety. We expect people to question, use their judgment and utilize these tools every day. In addition to monthly and/or weekly training topics and emphasis, we use regular meetings at the beginning of shifts to address safety concerns:

  • STOP (Stop When Uncertain)
  • Peer Checking
  • JSA Use
  • Questioning Attitude (QVV)
  • Two-minute Drill
  • Procedure Use
  • Three-way Communication
  • Employee Intervention

OSHA Training

Going beyond the industry’s norms, Enerfab requires every employee  – even the administrative and executive team – to have a minimum 10 hours of OSHA training. Enerfab employees who will be in the field and on the job site – including field supervision and foremen – have OSHA 30.

We also have our own OSHA 500 Outreach Trainers conducting classes, in coordination with the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) to customize classes and include the most relevant topics.

Industry Leadership

Enerfab recognizes our employees work alongside craft workers and other contractors on job sites across the country. We believe we can be the catalyst for improving safety, but it will take the efforts of many companies and individuals in order to make safety a core value in the entire industry.

That’s why Enerfab team members and executive leadership are involved in safety committees in our associations and unions. This includes close participation in the MOST program for the Boilermakers national union, and with IMPACT, the Ironworkers flagship training program.
