Keeping Our Greatest Resource Safe
At Precision Environmental Company, we believe that people are our number one resource. That’s why we put such a priority on safety
Safety is given primary importance in planning and operating all company activities. Accordingly, it is company policy to place safety and health on an equal basis with quality, productivity and costs of providing services. We don’t just say it, we do it.
Safety Starts with the Right Training and Equipment
Precision Environmental Company’s safety and training program requires its workforce of 250-plus employees to continually upgrade their skills and improve productivity. Training programs at a minimum include asbestos, lead, hazardous waste operations ( HAZWOPER ), confined space, confined space rescue, powered industrial trucks, aerial lifts, lockout/tagout, fall protection, scaffold erection, excavation, and OSHA 10 and 30-hour for Construction. Re-certification and upgrading are constantly ongoing.
Our Reputation for Safety is in the Numbers
Precision Environmental Company is recognized as an industry leader for not only its quality of work but also for its safe work history. Since 1987 Precision has submitted over 3,000 notifications to the Ohio Department of Health. We have increased our annual hours worked to over 500,000 while maintaining a Experience Modification Rate ( EMR ) well below the industry average (<1.0) for over a decade.
Additionally, we have received safety performance awards from the Construction Employer’s Association for the last 6 years and have been recognized as Safety Contractor of the Year by NASA Glenn Research Center. Precision Environmental has also been annually recognized by ENR (Engineer News-Record) as one of the top asbestos environmental contractors nationally.
