SAFETY AT IPS (INS:400-209240)
At IPS, we are committed to conducting our business the right way for our company and our customers.
We strive to achieve excellence in all areas of our support services to the oil gas industry in New Mexico and Texas. We consistently and systematically implement Social Responsibility programs through our comprehensive Health, Environment and Safety Management system, which sets a high expectation and standard for managers and employees across each business unit which helps us to better manage our performance and risks.
IPS believes that all injuries are preventable; therefore, we will continually strive to prevent injuries from occurring. Management also recognizes that every employee share in the responsibility for safety on the job; consequently, safe work practices and timely reporting of incidents and potential accidents (i.e., near misses and unsafe conditions) are a condition of employment.
Everyone is encouraged to provide suggestions and establish high personal goals for eliminating accidents and injuries. Participation in meetings to discuss the safety aspects of each assignment is mandatory. If the source of a hazard cannot be eliminated, the use of special procedures, safety devices, or protective equipment and clothing must be utilized to reduce the exposure potential; if these measures cannot sufficiently reduce the potential for harm, then the job will not be performed.
IPS takes a proactive approach to conducting our safety program. Incidents and near misses will always be investigated and more importantly learned from.
IPS conducts all of its business with high ethical standards of practice. We apply these standards to all interactions with employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
