Environmental Health & Safety

The Shaw Group Inc. is firmly committed to operating all of our facilities and projects in a safe, efficient manner and in compliance with all applicable safety, health, and environmental laws, rules, and regulations. Through the adoption of these sustainable practices we are committed to securing a high quality of life for current and future generations, restoring and sustaining a healthy environment, and increasing value for our customers, shareholders, and business partners.

We uphold the highest environmental health and safety (EH&S) standards, and promote a proactive safety culture and a heightened awareness of our surroundings both on and off the job. We focus on proactively identifying potential risks and hazards in order to provide an injury-free work environment where people, equipment, and the environment are not placed at unreasonable threat of injury or damage and we continually strive to be responsible citizens in every community in which we operate.

As trustees of this policy, Shaw employees actively participate in this on-going process and advocate this philosophy in every aspect of our work.

Beyond Compliance

At Shaw, our commitment to environmental health and safety goes far beyond complying with prescribed standards. We strive to set the standard for EH&S excellence.

Each Shaw employee is empowered to set a standard for safety. Our "STOP WORK" card program empowers every employee to stop a work activity that presents a danger to themselves, other employees, or the public, and to do so without fear of reprimand or retaliation. And our off-the-job safety program teaches employees that safety awareness doesn't stop when they leave the building or the job site.

Safety isn't just a program at Shaw – it's a way of doing business.
