people first


Perfex is a “People First” company, and maintaining a strong safety culture is the most important thing we do. We do not believe in safety being a segregated part of our culture; we believe in safety being the #1 priority throughout all aspects of our company. With this focus, our employees are protected, and we can give our business partners’ confidence that everything is being achieved to protect their employees and investments. In addition, heightened awareness in the workplace translates to a new consciousness of safety at home, behind the wheel, and is contagious to our families and customers.

Perfex is a participating member of both ISNetworld and Veriforce/PEC Premier Services and maintains a record of statistical information on both websites. As part of our commitment to safety, compliance, risk and injury management, and environmental stewardship, Perfex is proud to partner with:

Training &Meetings

Short Service Employee (SSE) Program – Perfex employees attend a new hire orientation during which they are introduced to the Perfex safety culture, job hazards, policies, and procedures. Following the new hire orientation, employees enter the (SSE) Program, where they receive mentoring, training, and direct supervision before being released on their own.

Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) Program – Perfex uses a BBS approach to Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) performance by focusing on our employees’ actual behavior to influence their safety. Through a continuous process of observations, statistical analysis, and discussions with all team members, Perfex creates customized, relevant, and research-supported strategies to improve the way our team works and behaves regarding their HSE performance. We promote a safer work environment by recognizing both positive and unsafe behaviors and continuously reinforcing HSE policies and procedures.

STOP Program – All employees are trained in new hire orientation, to use the STOP program any time they feel a work condition is unsafe. All employees, regardless of their position within the company, know they have a duty to stop any hazardous work and only resume work after all concerns have been resolved. Forms are provided to employees to document all STOP interventions.

Work Observation Program – Supervisors complete an observation form on each employee at regular intervals. They evaluate the proper use of equipment, work positioning, behavior, personal protective equipment (PPE) selection and service. Corrective actions are immediate and recorded, which is part of the employee’s safety record.

Drug and Alcohol Program – Perfex uses DISA and TPS Alert for Department of Transportation (DOT) programs, and all covered employees who will enter a company location are on those data bases. Our supervisors receive the required two-hour drug and alcohol training and are approved by DISA and TPS Alert. Statistical records are submitted to the National Compliance Management Service (NCMS) for the review of DOT pipeline employees.

Perfex uses a variety of methods to deliver training to our employees. HAZWOPER is an eight-hour training course required for all employees annually. Computer-based safety programs are used to train the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) core programs. This program is administered through the Safety Skills Learning Management System and students must receive a certificate of completion and is evidence of their training.
