Our Approach

Our safety story begins with our core values. Ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees, subcontractors, clients, and the environment at the forefront of our operations. Our approach is designed to ensure that everyone goes home safe, that we have whole families – with zero harm and zero injuries. Our corporate commitment to safety is evidenced in our programs and most importantly, in the performance of our employees.

Risk Reduction

Through partnerships with our insurance carriers, aggressive employee training, and proven approaches to risk analysis and reduction (including utilization of our LIFE program), WHPacific engages in active risk reduction on all its programs and projects. Moving risk reduction from an authority-based model to a responsibility-based model is a major program initiative at WHPacific.

Journey to Safety Excellence

National Safety Council: Campbell Institute Logo

As a charter member of the Campbell Institute, the National Safety Council’s (NSC) Center of Excellence, we have adopted the NSC Journey to Safety Excellence™ as the cornerstone of our of our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) program. This is a carefully-crafted partnership between employees, management, partners, and our clients. Based on W. Edwards Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, the Journey is centered on the four pillars of safety excellence.

Performance Management

ISNET World Logo

WHPacific measures performance success through leading indicators: audits, inspections, observations, training, and our employees’, partners’, and clients’ perception of our quality and safety performance. We utilize lagging indicators as a benchmark to see if our successes are proving effective. Through trend analysis, we adjust the training and observations, audits and inspections to move us to zero incidents. In addition, we utilize systems like ISNetworld and PICS to ensure we meet the highest standards of reporting that our clients expect.
