Your project is in safe hands

HOW WE DO IT

IME’s Safety Committee fosters a culture where safety is paramount. Our employees participate in safety observation practices and near miss reporting through our very own app. The app allows us to better educate the organization on ongoing safety improvements. These observations are then added to our safety process, so that the same mistakes aren’t repeated.

SITE-SPECIFIC SAFETY PROGRAMS

Each site has specifically tailored daily safety programs designed to identify, mitigate, and eliminate safety issues. There is an in-house safety director and jobsite training of all new employees. Weekly toolbox safety meetings at all worksites are mandated. IME provides company supplied safety equipment and training, as well as jobsite safety checks. Daily Job Hazard Analyses are the cornerstone of the Safety Program and make IME’s worksite that you have to worry about.

SAFETY COMMITTEE

We are committed to fostering a safe and healthy environment for all of our employees and clients. Our Safety Committee creates industry best practices for our field team to live and work by.

NOT JUST A METRIC

Safety is more than good statistics. IME empowers our personnel to enforce our rigorous safety standards. Every personnel has the RIGHT to stop any work they feel is unsafe.

WE SAVE LIVES

Our team of professionals are trained in First Aid, CPR, and MSHA requirements. In the event of an emergency, job site-related or otherwise, our 24/7 trucks and vans are equipped with AED or automated External Defibrillator devices. To date, our team has saved the lives of 12 people with the help of training and safety knowledge.
