Health and Safety
No issue is more paramount to MEI then the safety of our
employees. Every service that MEI provides is enhanced by employees who feel
valued and protected by a company determined to keep them safe. MEI invests a
great deal of time and money on employee safety. All field personnel receive 40
hour OSHA training and the appropriate yearly 8-hour updates. In addition,
weekly safety meetings are held and safety is continually discussed and
MEI takes all reasonable precautions to protect the
environment, safety and health of employees and members of the public. Our
in-house Safety and Health Program meets or exceeds the requirements of OSHA 29, CFR 1910 and other applicable federal, state, and regional environmental safety
and health regulations. All MEI personnel, including subcontractors, receive
training appropriate to the work to be performed. Every attempt is made by each
employee to reduce the possibility of an accident.
certified OSHA instructor is kept on staff and copies of all training
certificates and medical monitoring records are supplied for job specific
requirements. Marion hosts seminar classes on various skills by experts in that
particular discipline. Our crews are carefully selected, evaluating physical
abilities, experience and teamwork capabilities. Management is very conscious of
the necessity of matching the crews’ experience and skills to individual
projects. MEI’s retention rate is high and we have the luxury of supplying
seasoned personnel to every project. A safe work environment is most readily
achieved if the manpower employed for the project possess industry savvy.
Safety is approached from several angles, training, experience, and prioritizing
by management. There is no room for error and MEI stands behind their “safety first” motto.
