Access to safe, clean water is something many people in the US don’t think about much – it has
become a part of their daily lives. Most don’t realize how much work is done behind the scenes
by wastewater treatment operators, laboratory technicians, utilities and other workers who face a
variety of potential safety hazards on a daily basis.

These hazards can include exposure to pathogens, chemicals, physical hazards including falls
and working on machinery in confined spaces.

safety for water utilities workersTo keep workers, and the general public safe, it is critical that all levels of operators and workers
at wastewater treatment plants, local utilities and public works clearly understand and follow
OSHA compliance, safety guidelines and best practices. When employees aren’t properly
trained, don’t understand safety protocols, or don’t feel confident their facility makes safety
culture a priority, the potential for critical risks and hazards increases.

The experts at Circle Safety & Health Consultants work with sites across Virginia and beyond to
provide Industrial Hygiene sampling, analyze and identify any potential safety hazards or areas
of non-compliance including proper storage and exposure to chemicals, protective clothing
practices, noise levels and much more.

We also develop a customized safety plan including documented safety manuals, an
implementation plan and the tools to foster a safety climate where employees and workers feel
confident management takes their safety seriously and they are empowered to speak up if a
potential hazard or behavior is identified.

Training plans for employees and workers include critical safety elements which may include:

  • OSHA Compliance
  • Fall Protection
  • Confined-Space Entry
  • Lockout/Tagout
  • Hearing Conservation
