Our commitment to safety.
safety

Creating and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment at Achilles USA is the right thing to do for our employees, for the residents of the communities in which our operations are located, for our customers and for the environment. It’s also just plain good business.

New Employees Orientation

All employees undergo several orientations before they begin work, including:

  • Environmental
  • Health
  • Safety and security

Government statistics show that new employees who do not have experience with their new duties and/or their new work environment are much more likely to be involved in incident and injury.

Ongoing Trainings

Trainings don’t conclude with new employee orientation; employees also receive more than 1,300 man hours of annual training on such topics as:

  • Portable fire extinguisher training
  • Lockout/Tagout training
  • Hazard communication training
  • Hazardous material handling training
  • Electrical hazard awareness training
  • Personal protective equipment training
  • Spill response training
  • First Aid/CPR & AED training
  • Emergency evacuation training
  • Forklift training
  • Stormwater awareness training
  • Respirator training and fit-testing
