ECC - Never Compromising Safety

"ECC--Never Compromising Safety,” a tagline created by our employee-owners, is more than a safety slogan to us--it’s a way of life. Safety is a core value at ECC and its importance is reflected through all organizational levels and in all operating standards. We are committed to ensuring a safe environment for employees, subcontractors, clients, and the public. ECC adheres to the strictest safety practices and enforces a “zero-tolerance” policy toward safety hazards. Everyone, from our corporate organization and field teams to our subcontractors, is responsible and accountable for safety.

Led by certified experts in the fields of occupational safety, industrial hygiene, and hazardous materials management, ECC’s Environment, Safety, and Quality (ESQ) organization oversees the development, implementation, and monitoring of our ISO 9001-certified safety and health processes, which include:
  • Management leadership both at the corporate and field levels
  • Engaging all employees and partner firms and encouraging involvement in the process
  • Mandatory training, professional development, and safety skill enhancement for employees, partners, and site visitors
  • Standard operating procedures enforced during field operations, frequent safety audits, and daily site meetings to review safety issues
  • Near miss and lessons learned reporting to ensure continuous improvement
  • Consistency with Occupational Health and Safety Management System standards endorsed by the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program, ANSI/AIHA Z10-2005, and BS OHSAS 18001-2007
  • Compliance with OSHA standards, host nation regulations, EM 385-1-1 and other client program and contractual requirements
ECC has been recognized for safety with more than 50 awards and commendations in the past 5 years, including 26 Perfect Record Awards, 6 Million Work Hours Awards, 3 Occupational Excellence Achievement Awards and 9 Milestone Awards from the National Safety Council; 21 client commendation letters; and VPP Star Site designations in Colorado, Massachusetts, Texas, and Guam, including OSHA Region 1’s VPP “Star Among Stars” award for ECC’s work at the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
