At Beitzel Corporation and Pillar Innovations, safety is not simply first. Rather, it is a continuous process that starts in the design phase of a project and continues until the work is done. As an employer, our first obligation is to protect our most important asset – our people. As a contractor, we also recognize that as guests on the oil and gas, mining, and industrial sites where we work we have a responsibility for the safety of those working around us. Sometimes this means that we have to make tough decisions to ensure a safe workplace even at the cost of production.
Our personnel are trained and empowered to make the right decisions concerning safety. We are proud of our safety record and constantly work to improve it. In recent years, we have achieved one million man-hours with no lost time accidents — twice. We are currently over 2.5 million man hours with no lost time accidents (8/4/14). These milestones, while great, are simply that — milestones. What that means is that while we are headed in the right direction, we can never be content with any accidents or incidents, no matter how minor.
Safety goes beyond our work practices and goes into the very services and products we provide. Beitzel and Pillar products not only contribute to safety but also do it while increasing productivity and reducing costs. Many of our recent developments including the Mudster cuttings handling system and automation and instrumentation offerings have given our customers competitive advantages while improving safety. As we continue to innovate, this mix of production and safety benefits will be the hallmark of a Beitzel or Pillar product or service.
If your organization has a production or safety concern, our team welcomes the challenge.
