Wrapping up our 10th annual Safety Month celebration
Article

Throughout June, our employees displayed their commitment to being Safer and Stronger Together, making our 10th annual Safety Month a huge success. This month is a time to reinforce our Health & Safety practices that support a strong safety culture year-round.

Tetra Tech’s employee participation and engagement are vital to the success of our Health & Safety program—we strive to engage more employees each year during Safety Month. We believe a successful safety program must include engaging employees in various safety processes at all levels.

When employees are well informed about safety practices in their workplace, they are more aware of their surroundings. Research shows that 70 percent fewer safety incidents occur in highly engaged workplaces, which is a win-win for both employees and employers.
