Safety is a word you see everywhere in the oil and gas industry. But at IAG, safety is more than a mandatory term we must use to show we care about our employees and the environment. It’s the guiding principle of our company. It’s our core purpose and an integral part of our founder’s vision.
IAG is committed to protecting the health and safety of every single person that sets foot in our facilities and on our sites. There’s a reason Safety is our No. 1 rule. If our employees do not arrive home safely every night, then nothing else matters.
At IAG, we all work together to eliminate work-related injuries, illnesses and incidents by educating employees, improving safety processes and spreading awareness. Our dedication to achieving outstanding safety performance is evident in our safety record. IAG boasts a work comp modifier of .8 and a TRIR rate of 0. We have accomplished these superior metrics by enforcing the highest standards, policies and procedures. We utilize advanced equipment, comply with OSHA regulations, and provide mandatory new-hire training and continued training for employees.
IAG’s safety culture is instilled in every single one of our employees, no matter their role. Safety is crucial at every level. Our employees are trained to practice safety in all aspects of their jobs. All employees have the authority to cease operations if they deem a job hazardous.
