Join Tetra Tech’s Health & Safety team in recognizing Safety Month during June by reaffirming our commitment to Leading with Safety.

As leaders in the markets we support, we must also lead with safety. Not only do we provide clear solutions to complex problems, our employees and clients also expect our work is performed safely.

“While we work on tens of thousands of projects every year, there’s not a single one of those projects that are more important than every one of our employees going home every day safely,” said CEO Dan Batrack. “And there’s nothing that’s a higher priority to this company than that.”

Leading with Safety means that Tetra Tech staff are engaged in the safety program and take a proactive approach to health, wellness, and injury prevention. During Safety Month 2023, we have an opportunity to show how each of us can lead with safety.

Leading with Safety can vary depending on your assignment and perspective—but it’s all about the actions we take now that prevent an injury from occurring tomorrow. These actions can include identifying and controlling potential hazards prior to initiating work and participating in relevant safety training so that your work is performed safely.

Each of us can be safety leaders, whether you are working remotely, in the office, or in a hybrid model.

Throughout June, we will highlight weekly articles, photos, and resources related to how each of us are valued for our contributions to the program, health and wellness, and common field hazards on our social media profiles—LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Remember that safety leadership is a choice. “Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another,” as John C. Maxwell said.

Let’s take the time in June to exemplify safety leadership to others around us.
