AirTek’s Commitment to Safety - Our Values
At AirTek, our commitment to safety allows us to maintain, install, and upgrade electrostatic precipitators consistently and without incident, one project at a time. When we’re called to job sites, we understand the risks. We don’t stop until each individual member of our crew understands them too.
Our commitment to safety culture throughout the Southeast has led to a likewise commitment from our customers. In fact, 80% of our business is based on repeat customers—testimony to our high safety standards.
From our headquarters in Troy, AL, and then beyond throughout the Southeast, we safely handle ESP outages for a multitude of loyal clients. But how does our commitment to safety play out in the everyday? What makes AirTek the preferred ESP maintenance choice for pulp and paper industries, cement, and power plants across the country.?
Injury Free, One Project at a Time
Complacency is the #1 contributor to worksite accidents. When a contractor of any kind believes too strongly in the same old safety plan, accidents are more likely to occur. Sometimes, the most likely risks are those we think we’ve avoided.
At AirTek, we never rest on our safety laurels. Each new job presents another chance to consider our protocols. Our safety procedures are reviewed constantly from one job to the next. We update those procedures to meet the latest applicable safety requirements and the latest, unique jobsite.
Once we decide on the correct safety protocols for a jobsite, we employ an active process to instill those safety values in each employee and regularly implement programs to reinforce safety practices. In short, there’s no such thing as being too safe at AirTek.
OSHA & Beyond
At AirTek, we believe that meeting the minimal requirements for safety sounds better on paper than in practice. Our commitment to zero injuries extends beyond the minimum OSHA requirements to grant us, and our customers, some extra peace of mind.
Every unique jobsite, job scope, and customer safety standard is taken into account. This above-and-beyond attitude ensures a safety procedure that meets or exceeds OSHA guidelines. We continuously improve our safety processes to ensure that we stay on the path to industry-leading safety excellence.
To adjust our safety procedures with each job, we stay informed on the shifting standards and adapt accordingly. Our safety procedures are constantly reviewed and updated to meet the latest applicable requirements.
Everyone Knows the Plan
A plan is only as good as the people who know it and execute it. That’s why we actively instill our safety values in each employee and regularly implement programs to reinforce those practices. In addition, comprehensive safety training and coaching is ongoing with each new project, fostering an environment where workers help each other work safely.
Our dedicated safety program includes ongoing improvements, such as:
Adopting a behavior-based safety culture to ensure safety compliance from top to bottom
Recruiting professional safety personnel to the AirTek team
Enhancing our safety manual and supplementing with updated on-boarding and orientation videos
Involving immediate supervisors and foremen in annual safety seminars
What results from our holistic, 3-dimensional approach to safety is a crew that—from top to bottom—knows the plan like the back of their hand. Only when safety is comprehensively understood, and only when each individual is accountable for that safety, can a plan really come to fruition.
The AirTek Safety Advantage
There are too many good reasons to be as safe as possible on the jobsite. For our crew, for our business, for our customers, and for the successful completion of the job at hand, we take every precaution.
At AirTek, our commitment to safety is our #1 advantage. Our extensive knowledge and experience with electrostatic precipitators wouldn’t be worth much without the continued health and safety of our employees and the accident-free record we bring to the jobsite.
For the safest, most experienced, most dedicated ESP maintenance partners in the industry, trust AirTek in Troy, AL, and beyond.
