Each Spring, ConServ idles most all of its projects to gather 100% of its employees for one week (5 days) of intensive and relevant class-room and hands-on training. From OSHA to MSHA to PHSMA specific training, we cover a broad array of subject matters while concurrently completing each employees annual physical/hearing examinations at the training location. This year, as in years past, we also had a number of our customers present their 2019 safety initiatives/focus areas to ensure we start the work season and our projects in the right mind-set.
This year’s Safety Summit closed out with a presentation by ConServ’s President Scott Freshwater and a group discussion on three themes: Care, Risk Normalization and Dilemmas. These three themes were used as a ‘lens’ to talk about anything to do with safety. They provided us with a common language across the company while also allowing us to have focused conversations that are relevant to our own situations. During this conversation we talked about all three of the themes, site specific examples, how they are connected, how we can use them to look at safety differently and how we will use them on an ongoing basis after ConServ’s Safety Summit. The goal of the conversation was to further refine the ConServ culture to where everyone is equally responsible for the outcome – to make Absolute ZERO a reality every day
