Investing in Safety, Health & Environmental (SH&E) programs is an important practice that brings many benefits to the entire Champion organization.
The nature of our construction-focused work means that our crews typically encounter significant risks during the performance of their day-to-day activities. To help our employees in recognizing and mitigating these hazards, we have created and implemented a variety of job site programs and procedures.
Among our most effective workplace SH&E programs are the computer-based training modules that we have made available 24/7 via the internet and phone applications. Pairing these with specific task-targeted classroom training courses enables team members to stay up-to-date on the SH&E requirements for their current jobs and to prepare for advanced positions that call for specialized knowledge and skills. Training completions and recertification criteria can be accessed by our employees simply by using their phones, making it easy for everyone to know where they stand and what they need to accomplish their goals. What’s more, supervisors and clients can view these records in real time before assigning workers to tasks that require specific expertise or enhanced training.
By investing in our SH&E programs and platforms, Champion has established itself as an industry leader in workplace safety. This translates into:
Since November 2022, Champion Industrial Services has actively undertaken coatings removal at the Savannah River Site. Our crews have logged over 33,000 labor hours on this project to date, and we’ve surpassed 17,500 labor hours since our last safety incident. Despite occasional challenges, we continuously adapt means and methods in real time to enhance employee safety while meeting all project demands. The Champion employees at the Savannah River Site have consistently promoted a safe work culture since the beginning and remain diligent and engaged as we progress.Contact Champion
