As environmental remediation and engineering firms work to restore or protect our environment, HazTek works to ensure that projects proceed safely. We’ve managed safety programs at Superfund sites, manufactured gas plants, landfills, refineries, water treatment facilities, and power plants. HazTek also provides safety management services in support of underground work and during disaster response and recovery efforts following hurricanes, spills, fires, floods, tornados, and other disasters.
Expertise in known contaminants is essential while emergency procedures must be in place to protect against unknown and unexpected contaminants. Many times, this must all be managed while complying with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) safety regulations and coordinating with DEP and EPA.
HazTek was originally founded as a safety consulting company focused solely on environmental projects. We are broadly experienced in managing health and safety at environmental remediation sites and have extensive USACE expertise at Superfund sites, as well as on dredging projects. Our in-house staff includes a Certified Industrial Hygienist with more than 35 years of experience managing EH&S for large environmental remediation firms. In addition, our experience managing subcontractors of all tiers allows us to prequalify and manage your subcontractors for you and ensures that all aspects of your project progress safely and smoothly.
Every construction site has its own unique safety and health hazards related to location, environment and the type of work in progress. General contractors and construction managers must adapt their operations to each phase of work and manage safety relative to the primary concerns of a given activity. HazTek makes it easier, with site-specific safety management expertise at pharmaceutical facilities, chemical plants, refineries, power plants, substations, high-rises, hospitals, airports, casinos, mass transit systems, and more.
HazTek has managed worksite safety and health for many of the nation’s largest and most respected construction management firms and general contractors. Our experts are skilled in recognizing potential worksite hazards and highly effective in planning and implementing proactive measures. At the same time, HazTek has excellent relationships with owners, and is familiar with owner safety cultures, programs, and expectations.

Every industry has unique challenges relating to EH&S. HazTek has an outstanding reputation and a proven track record of success working with firms of all sizes at facilities and work sites in wide-ranging industries such as:
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.
The inherent dangers of construction sites can be compounded by the varied environments where electrical contractors apply their skills. From pharmaceutical and manufacturing facilities to refineries, chemical plants, and power plants, HazTek offers the site- and industry-specific expertise needed to protect the wellbeing of employees and businesses.
Working in and around high-voltage presents daily hazards for electrical contractors. Incidents are often severe to fatal, leaving no room for error. Additional challenges are created by staffing thresholds and related requirements for dedicated safety representatives; the need to follow multiple safety programs; working at highly regulated facilities; issues related to up- and down-sizing of crews; and the difficulty of finding prequalified second- and third-tier subcontractors.
HazTek has extensive experience and a proven track record of effectiveness working with electrical contracting firms of all sizes at facilities and work sites in wide-ranging industries. Many HazTek health and safety professionals are former electricians and craftsmen. They have in-depth knowledge of the industry-specific challenges you face, enabling them to employ safety solutions that will keep your employees safe and your project moving.
