Health, Safety, and Environment

Committing to the health and safety of all parties and to protecting the environment is paramount in FWS operations and placed at the forefront of everything we do. Our people are our greatest asset and nothing is more important than having everyone go home safe at the end of each day.

FWS has a comprehensive Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) program which is implemented throughout all levels and sectors of our company. Our goal is to prevent incidents by ensuring each employee is trained and educated in their roles. Employee engagement is encouraged through active participation in hazard identification and risk management, regular job site inspections, and full compliance with FWS’ HSE program.


Our Commitment to Safety

FWS’ commitment to safety is simple: everybody goes home safe! To succeed, we work diligently with all stakeholders including our employees, clients, and other contractors to ensure our worksites are as safe as possible. While we work with our “partners” to constantly advance and improve safety interests, we also adopt a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to serious and potentially serious infractions.


Our People – Our Safety Culture

At FWS, we know that our greatest asset is our employees. Without them, our business could not be successful. We strive to maintain an environment in which employees demand our workforce to be competent, safety-focused, personally fulfilled, and driven to succeed.


Our safety culture stresses that employees take ownership of the safety of themselves as well as others and do not accept low standards and risk-taking. We share a collective belief that true improvement can only be achieved as a group and that zero injuries are attainable goals.


Our Commitment to the Environment

FWS recognizes environmental protection as a key component of sound business performance, and a matter of delivering on our duty of care towards future generations. FWS is committed to reducing environmental impact and is continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods. It is our priority to encourage our customers, suppliers, and all business associates to do the same.


Safety Leadership

Our HSE manager, along with the support of the FWS executive management, maintains our HSE program by listening to employees’ concerns and suggestions and working with FWS’ team of professionals who monitor and set forth adjustments to our HSE Policy.
