Safety Brings You Home

Safety is ingrained in our culture, and we have created an environment in which all our employees have the opportunity and obligation to take ownership of not only their safety, but that of their coworkers as well. Our goal is a workforce that is safe 24/7, both at work and at home.

The Capacity Model

We are in the people business, and we know that people are fallible. Therefore, we will always do our best to prevent incidents, but we realize that mistakes will happen. When mistakes happen, the question becomes, “Do we have the capacity to absorb failure without causing harm?”. Our Capacity Model creates a work environment that focuses on preventing an incident while also building the capacity for failure by always planning and executing our work as if failure is going to happen today.

Quanta Advanced Training Center

Our customers depend on us to provide a consistently trained and skilled workforce to ensure the safest job sites across North America. As part of the Quanta family of companies, Mears has access to the Quanta Advanced Training Center at the Lazy Q Ranch in La Grange, Texas. This 2,300 acre converted ranch provides hands-on instruction from master trainers in a controlled environment, where the focus is on safety and skill development. By constantly innovating with the latest research and technology, the Lazy Q Ranch delivers the highest level of training across the industries we serve.

Commitment Coin

We are dedicated to bringing all of our people home each day, and that means having support from the top down. Not only are we committed to our employees, but Quanta is also committed to the industry we serve, to our customers and to our communities. To demonstrate our commitment to our employees, the Quanta Commitment Coin is awarded to those employees who exemplify safe work habits and their commitment to safety.

AED Program

The goal of our Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival for people who have sudden cardiac arrests. The AED program is designed to provide equipment and training to enhance life safety response measures. AEDs make it possible for trained and untrained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

We deploy an AED on every job site across North America. Our AED program continues to be a life-saving success for our workforce and communities across North America.
