Quality affects safety, safety affects lives
At EAD, we recognize that we cannot be a world-class safety organization without understanding the affect that quality has on safety. Whether it is in our engineering designs, our automation systems, our control panels or how we execute and construct a project, every detail counts.
Every single detail on our projects can impact worker safety, and that’s why we have worked so hard to develop our standard processes and procedures. Like an airplane pilot, we want our employees to know what they need to do every step of the way. But, we don’t want robots – we want employees who are trained to use SOPs so they don’t have to sweat the small things. They are able to focus instead on making the smart decisions, and more importantly, EAD empowers them to do so.
This is why we talk constantly about the lessons learned on our projects. This is why we started EAD University as a training platform for our people. This is why we hire the people we do. This is why we manage our business the way we do.

Each new employee goes through a face-to-face safety orientation during their on-boarding process.
