Safety & Quality Overview

Safety is a Core Value

We strive to operate event free and believe that no work is important enough to compromise the health, safety, or mental well-being of our employees, the public, or the communities where we work. Supporting this is our commitment to fostering a world-class safety culture where our high standards for safety, health, environmental, and quality (SHEQ) are incorporated in everything we do – from creating a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, ensuring our services are performed safely and responsibly, minimizing our environmental impact, and delivering a quality service. With our Think Ahead philosophy, we continue to advance our SHEQ goals with investment in programs and initiatives that ensure continuous improvement.

Safety and Quality
Management System

Centuri’s internal Safety and Quality Management System serves to formalize the safety policies, processes, and program standards that will apply to our employees, partners, and contractors. As with all management systems, ours facilitates goal setting, planning, and measuring performance. It becomes part of the culture and the way people do their jobs.

Pillars within our management system are the foundation on which the system is based. Each pillar below contains elements that establish our system’s framework.

Leadership and Commitment

Senior leadership is committed to provide the vision, establish the framework, set expectations and provide the resources necessary to achieve world class safety and quality culture and performance. Employees must also commit to personal responsibility for their safety, the safety of their fellow workers, and the public.
