PICS (Pacific Industrial Contractor Screening) is a pre-qualification program designed to connect environmental consultants with subcontractors. H&P’s health and safety program has been independently audited and pre-qualified by PICS, which allows environmental consultants to readily hire H&P for field work taking place at refineries and various other sites.
The focus of H&P for vehicle safety is preventative maintenance. H&P drillers and mobile lab chemists maintain detailed vehicle maintenance logs outlining services as they are performed. The vehicles undergo a bi-annual Safety Check at an approved maintenance facility. In addition, weekly vehicle inspection checklists are completed by each driller and chemist, and then reviewed by employee supervisors in an effort to address any issues before they become a problem.
Health and Safety Binders
Each H&P employee has a health and safety binder in their vehicle that contains the most recent Job Safety Analysis (JSA/JLA) sheets, standard operating procedures, personal training certificates, and the corporate Health and Safety policy at their fingertips.
