At Westech Drilling safety and protection of the environment is our foremost priority. Nothing else we do in the course of a day or project takes precedence over Health, Safety & Environmental considerations. This mindset is reinforced with our employees through both daily and monthly discussions on safe work practices. In addition, all members of our leadership team perform best safety practices at all times, leading by example. We have implemented extensive employee training and mentoring programs in order to fine tune best practices and procedures and allow for constant improvement. We view these measures as the only path to long term success as a company.
Safety starts with understanding, communication and awareness. Clearly defined roles and responsibilities are vital for determining how and what information is communicated through our organization. Clearly outlined responsibilities help management & supervisors determine what is required training for employees and how to best deliver it. This allows employees to focus on their work safely, ultimately leading to supporting our goal of "no one gets hurt", resulting in a more effective and productive workforce.
