With this fundamental approach in mind, Vistabution developed its “ZERO Injury” program to uphold safe and healthy working conditions. Demonstrating our commitment to this high standard is as follows:
- 100% safety record
- 100% of our work sites are performing at the ZERO Incident Level
- 100% of our work sites are performing at the ZERO Injury Level
- 1.0 EMR Incident Rate for the past 10 years
The success of Vistabution’s safety record can be attributed to every employee and sub-contractor’s commitment to personal and project safety. At Vistabution, safety is a collective effort, resulting in NO legal judgments, liens, fines, violations or law suits associated with project performance or professional liability by the Federal or State Government.
Vistabution is a forerunner within the industry because of our uncompromising allegiance to the health and safety of our employees and neighborhoods we work by complying with environmental regulations. We are constantly implementing and reviewing work practices to ensure all risk factors are minimized.
Safety is a paramount responsibility for everyone working at Vistabution, regardless of position or job classification. Every employee is expected to embrace and follow all safety procedures. To that end, safety expectations are communicated to each employee during new-hire orientations and are reinforced through safety programs, training sessions and regular safety meetings. Health and safety must be treated in the same professional manner as production, quality, marketing, cost control or any other business fundamental. All personnel working with Hazardous Materials are accredited by the HHCU and have completed a minimum 40 hours of EPA AHERA/OSHA required hazardous waste operations training.
