Safety Programs

At Quanta, safety is a core value.

Our job is to complete every project without incident or injury. Quanta’s management team creates a culture in which all employees have the opportunity and responsibility to take ownership for their safety and the safety of their coworkers. We’ve always held the belief that our most valuable asset – what truly sets us apart – is our employees. At the end of the day, there’s nothing more important than our employees coming home safely.

 

AED Program

The goal of our Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival for people who have sudden cardiac arrests.

The AED program is designed to provide equipment and training to enhance life safety response measures. AEDs make it possible for trained and untrained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

We deploy an AED on every job site across North America. We go above the industry standards and hold ourselves to the Quanta standard. Our AED program has so far saved 24 lives (including several civilians) and continues to be a life-saving success for our workforce and communities across North America and beyond.

AED units deployed: 7,615
Lives saved: 24

Commitment Coin

 

We know that in order to reach the goal of ZERO incidents, our leaders must drive the safety initiatives.

We are dedicated to bringing all of our people home each day, and that means having support from the top down. Not only are we committed to our employees, but Quanta is also committed to the industry we serve, to our customers and to our communities.

To demonstrate our commitment to our employees, the Quanta Commitment Coin is awarded to those employees who exemplify safe work habits and their commitment to safety.

Leadership Development

Stepping up to Supervision

This course explains the basic ideas, techniques and skills a newly promoted foreman/supervisor will need to master. It identifies the tasks that lie ahead and presents strategies to help anticipate each new challenge and deal with them safely and efficiently. Our foremen and supervisors are our first line of management and crucial for ensuring safety of all employees.

The Process

Step 1: The senior manager has a one-on-one discussion with the newly promoted foreman/supervisor. The discussion centers around the roles and responsibilities of that position, what to expect in the position, and where to obtain assistance and guidance.

Step 2: The newly promoted foreman/supervisor attends the first available Stepping Up to Supervision training session. This course is approximately six hours and begins the leadership development process.

Step 3: The foreman/supervisor may then attend the Supervisory Leadership Skills Outreach Training class (OSHA 20-hours) and/or the Pipeline Leadership Training class.
