Our Safety Achievements
Safety organizations and clients recognize Tetra Tech’s commitment to the health and safety of its employees and excellent performance in the safe execution of its projects. We incorporate this commitment to safety throughout our organization, from our executive management to each member of our field teams. Safety is emphasized in our Project Management Training courses and the Tetra Tech Leadership Academy.
Commitment to Incident Prevention
In addition to job- and site-specific safety training and evaluation, Tetra Tech implements two enterprise-wide campaigns that emphasize the importance of safety for all employees.
Our Focus Four Injury Prevention Program (FOCUS 4) educates employees about the most frequent types of incidents that result in injuries at Tetra Tech’s project sites and offices. FOCUS 4 guidance applies to all operations as a means to address the risk of injury, assess hazard controls, target improvement areas, encourage employee participation, and prevent injuries.
Tetra Tech also recognizes and celebrates Safety Month each June. We post weekly updates and resources on key safety topics to Tetra Tech’s intranet and Facebook and Twitter pages. During this time, employees renew their commitment to safe work practices and participate in various awareness and prevention activities.
