Safety Brings You Home
Mears operates safely in every situation. Safety is ingrained in our culture. We strive to complete all projects without incident or injury because we believe it is our duty to do so. We have created an atmosphere in which all of our employees have the opportunity and obligation to take ownership of their own safety and that of their coworkers. Our goal is a workforce that is safe, 24/7, both at work and at home.
The Lazy Q Ranch
A WORLD CLASS TRAINING FACILTY: Mears’ customers count on receiving the safest and most skilled workforce in the industry. Mears delivers by preparing personnel at the Lazy Q Ranch, Quanta’s state-of-the-art training facility in La Grange, Texas. The 2,200-acre campus provides employees hands-on instruction from master trainers in a controlled environment, focusing on safety, skill development and certifications.
Providing a safe work place for our employees always comes first. In an effort to provide special recognition for workers who exemplify safe work habits and a commitment to safety above and beyond ones normal activities, we want to formalize our efforts in awarding the Quanta Safety Commitment Coin. We believe it is important to take the opportunity to identify and recognize those employees who may go unnoticed but have demonstrated outstanding commitment to a safe work environment, as well as safety away from the job site
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. Each team under the Mear's umbrella is assigned an AED apparatus. AEDs make it possible for trained and untrained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Our AED program continues to be a life-saving success for our workforce and communities around the world.

WE ARE CHANGINGTHE WAY WE DO SAFETY
We are in the people business and we know that people are fallible. We always choose prevention, but we realize that mistakes will happen. The question becomes do we have the capacity to absorb failure without causing harm. To be ready, we will plan and execute work assuming that failure could happen at any moment. We will learn from each job, each mistake and success – to continue getting better in every aspect. Safety is not the complete absence of injuries – it is the presence of capacity. Safety is not just a policy – safety is the core of who we are and always at the forefront of our focus.LEARN MORE
