DREDGING AND MARINE SERVICES
Dredging and marine construction environments are nothing like “typical” construction sites. From piers, docks, barges, and beaches to waterways, levees, and lock systems, outdoor and isolated worksites present unique risks to people, property, and the environment. HazTek has broad experience with dipper, clamshell, pipeline, and hopper dredges and other marine construction equipment and processes. Our comprehensive safety management services help reduce risks, while protecting the wellbeing of employees and businesses.
HazTek offers customized safety services that address the specific hazards and safety requirements of the dredging and marine industry. HazTek’s Site Safety Officers (SSO) have extensive experience with USACE EM 385-1 and the regulatory variations of different regions. They thrive in the dredging and marine environments and are comfortable with rotational work schedules. In addition, our SSOs are accustomed to working in remote environments. In fact, HazTek dredging SSOs are some of our most tenured employees and are well-trained in the special challenges created by this type of work.
HazTek understands the unique work schedules required by dredging companies. Around-the-clock shifts, 365 days a year. Employees rotating in and out. Workers traveling to different job sites and moving from day shift to night shift. Flights, hotels, and rental cars. Continual changes as plans and projects evolve. HazTek handles it all by providing a dedicated Client Service Representative to help you manage the details and logistics.
We will provide training to your workers and cross-train our own employees when making personnel switches. Our resources and management systems assure project continuity when workers leave the company or job site. HazTek’s unique employment structure alleviates the need for excessive overtime payments. Our system enables significant cost savings during periods when extended work hours are necessary.
