Safety: The Cornerstone of our Culture

Safety is the cornerstone of our culture. It is more than something we talk about; we incorporate it into everything we do.

Michels has developed extensive programs to help ensure the safety of everyone who works on our projects. Every employee has Stop Work Promise. We ask everyone to make a promise to their families and co-workers to STOP or not perform any work or action that is or might be unsafe without fear of repercussion, whether on the job or in their personal lives.

Our mission is to ensure our people return home safely each day. Our projects are supported by a team of more than 180 trained HSE professionals who work with our crews to ensure safety by providing training, conducting audits and overseeing operations from an HSE perspective. Our managers and HSE team are responsible for exploring innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint and preserve the environment. We hold ourselves to HSE standards that comply with regulatory and legislated requirements, and create a safe and environmentally friendly workplace.

Michels was honored to receive the 2021 Distribution Contractors Association Arthur T. Everham Safety Award (first place), the 2021 ASDC Outstanding Safety Award, and the 2021 ASA Chicago Bronze Safety Award, among others.

Michels has also received recognition for its "Mi-Promises" campaign.

The only way to be truly satisfied is to do
what you believe is great work.
