Vista’s occupational health and safety program extends beyond a written policy; it is a vital part of our culture promoted by a 24/7 safety outlook that encourages everyone to think about safety at the office, in the field, and at home.
Our people – employees, subcontractors, and agency staff – are the foundation of everything we do as an engineering services firm. Their safety is in our hands and we owe it to them to provide a safe working environment to perform their specialized engineering consulting duties. We take great measures to ensure our work environment is caring and safe.
Our people regularly participate in safety training, with field staff completing comprehensive training specific to their work prior to heading into the field. Meeting the standards of regular independent evaluation and maintenance audits, Vista’s program maintains a Workplace Safety Certificate of Recognition.
Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) protection is a core value at Vista. We always aim to operate a safe, healthy, and environmentally friendly business. Vista supports the right of all personnel to work in a safe and healthy work environment and will take all reasonable steps to consistently uphold this value.
