Safety is the most important consideration for a Skyler project.

Skyler has an evolving safety approach that carefully considers client and federal, state, and local requirements to protect the workers and community. 

Skyler employs a highly‐structured Health and Safety Program
to ensure the safe and quality performance of field and workplace activities. 

The program provides health and safety training in accordance
 with both company and regulatory requirements. 
A site‐specific health and safety program is developed and implemented for each project prior to its initiation that considers:
Safe work practices
Engineering safeguards
Medical surveillance
Environmental and personnel monitoring
Personal protective equipment (PPE)
Education & training
Standard operating procedures for safe operations
Skyler’s comprehensive “safe” standard 
operating procedures provide instruction and guidance that consider:
Site description
On‐site organization and coordination
Site entry and control points
Site assessment
Hazard recognition
Emergency response, and decontamination

Site assessment and Hazard recognition, are always a continuous process due to ever changing site conditions. Skyler’s commitment to health and safety is further reflected in its 
Experience Modification Rate (EMR).
