Wrapping up our 10th annual Safety Month celebration
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. As we reflect on Safety Month, let’s look for ways to incorporate what we learned in our daily work and lives.
Engaging our employees in our strong safety culture this Safety Month
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.
Sharing learnings about cost reductions and innovations made in decommissioning projects
TotalDECOM released its Cross-Industry Learnings report in June 2020, sponsored by Tetra Tech. It offers a thorough look at the cost reductions and innovations made in decommissioning across sectors, including oil and gas, energy, and nuclear, that increase productivity and deliver economic growth.
Addressing the four types of hazards that most frequently result in injury to our employees
Tetra Tech’s Focus Four Injury Prevention Program (FOCUS 4) is a foundational component of our Health & Safety program. FOCUS 4 addresses the four types of hazards that most frequently result in injury to our employees. For Safety Month, we want to show how we are Safer and Stronger Together by ensuring everyone is aware of these hazards and can take the necessary precautions to avoid them.
Our goals for this program are that each employee is aware of the FOCUS 4 program, understands what it means, recognizes these hazards, and the common controls that can be applied.

Highlighting our Vehicle Safety Program to keep you and your colleagues safe while on the road
The use of motor vehicles is integral to Tetra Tech’s business, and the safe operation of these vehicles by our teams is a top priority. Our Health & Safety Vehicle Safety Program is designed to prevent injury and property damage resulting from motor vehicle incidents. We value each member of our team and want all to arrive safely to wherever their destinations may be.
Sharing emergency preparedness tips and resources to keep you safe
This year will forever be known as the year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the beginning of 2020, many of us have had to evaluate our safety and security and that of our families, employees, and clients due to this virus. Facing our vulnerability can be difficult for those who may not have considered the unexpected challenges an emergency like this can pose. Everyone can become less vulnerable to disasters by becoming better prepared to handle them.

Providing innovative technology solutions for tailings dams
Tetra Tech is a leader in developing solutions to support the operational safety of geotechnical and natural structures. On a global scale, tailings dam breaches are increasing in frequency, causing significant damage to the environment and even loss of life. To mitigate these catastrophic events in the future, Tetra Tech developed microseismic technology that can monitor the structural stability of tailings dams and identify parameters that may cause a failure.
On June 1, 2010, Tetra Tech launched its first Safety Month campaign to promote an annual focused safety message as part of the company’s strong safety culture. Our Health & Safety leaders teamed up with the U.S. National Safety Council to provide our employees with access to various safety tools and resources, and Tetra Tech’s Safety Month was born.
