Safety and Sustainability
We set the safety the bar high. Layne is committed to the long-term health and safety of our people and the communities we touch. We understand the challenges associated with complex cultures and harsh environments that are found on water management, drilling and construction sites around the world. As ONE Layne, our purpose is to enhance the lives of people by providing and protecting the world's essential natural resources – and it all begins with safety.
Layne's dedicated team of Safety, Health and Sustainability (SHS) professionals drive continuous improvement and heightened awareness across our enterprise through a robust training and auditing program. On the job site, we ensure our field employees possess the necessary personal protective equipment and detailed, site-specific safety information. We also provide a monthly “Layne Safety Topics” publication, translated into the primary languages where we operate, which covers issues such as ladder safety, first aid and electrical color coding compliance.
All field personnel participate in an annual two-day safety training class that is compliant with the latest OSHA, MSHA and DOT regulations. Clients and partners are also invited to participate in the training, where we review our Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA) program and Layne's Accident Prevention Policy. In areas such as South Africa, where safety regulations are less developed than other parts of the world, this kind of training reinforces our strong international reputation for safety and supports employee retention.
