ATL’s internal safety program starts with a simple idea – all injuries are preventable. Embracing this concept, ATL employees strive on a daily basis to achieve zero accidents. Our management team is committed to this goal and promotes a culture emphasizing safety as a priority and not a compromise.
With an internal motto of “Think Safety First,” we encourage, equip, and empower our employees to work in a safe manner. This holds true whether working in our own facilities, while traveling, or performing services on a project site.
Safety training begins within the first week for new employees who are required to complete ATL’s New Employee Orientation and the OSHA 10-Hour Course in Construction. Employees providing Environmental Services or working on hazardous waste sites also complete 40-Hour Safety Training for Hazardous Waste Operations course, as well as an annual OSHA 8-Hour HAZWOPER refresher course.
At the heart of ATL’s safety program is hazard recognition. ATL employees are continually reminded of hazards to look for while performing their daily work and of their responsibility to review their surroundings for potential dangers. Through different mediums of teleconferences, meetings, and informal conversations, employees are regularly encouraged to share their experiences, promoting recognition that other employees can learn from. Employees are encouraged to report hazards through our “If you see something, say something” approach.
ATL has three dedicated safety professionals that implementand monitor a rigorous health and safety program. ATL also has an exceptional safety record, with an EMR of 0.70 for 2023.
At ATL, we are committed to the health and safety of our employees and remain focused on serving our clients and the public in a responsible manner.
