Safety in the Workplace
EW Howell has established and endorses a Safety Program which provides a safe and healthy workplace for each employee, while also protecting the environment.
All employees are expected to work towards accomplishing the goals of the Safety Program and act responsibly in accordance with established policies and procedures. We believe that accidents are preventable, and zero accidents is our prime goal. EW Howell provides corporate safety training to all of our field personnel, supervisors, project team and management, which includes pre-task, field & office, pre-planning and project team meetings to review safety issues. Our Health and Safety Program (HASP) is available to all operations personnel.
