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 Industry Training Program. 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.
ATL has two dedicated safety professionals that implement a rigorous health and safety program. This includes mandatory 16-hour safety orientation and training for new employees prior to any field assignment. We also hold “toolbox” safety meetings, project and laboratory safety audits, and daily activity hazard analysis prior to work initiation to establish controls for eliminating and/or mitigating potential safety hazards.
