Health & Safety

At Metro Environmental, it is a fundamental belief that if health and safety are managed properly good things will follow. Better employees, better cost performance, better completion times, improved quality, and more importantly, more repeat business. Our industry leading safety standard, Experience Modification Rate (EMR) is not something that just happened. Management from top down share the belief that a strong safety record is the road to long term success and to personal and professional growth.

To maintain our high standards, a variety of techniques and training are incorporated into Metro’s core practices. We believe that no two jobs are identical and as such daily “tool-box” meeting are tailored to the characteristics of every job. This attention to detail is supported by training in:
