Workplace Health & Safety
Creating a Safe Working Environment

We are committed to employee safety at all ESCO Technologies facilities. Our corporate headquarters has a designated person tasked with oversight and monitoring of appropriate safety programs for all subsidiaries. Through employee training and continuous improvement, we strive for a zero-incident environment. We have equipment and procedures to protect employees in their work and we train employees on proper protocol. Our corporate headquarters and each ESCO subsidiary have designated safety employees.

We require all ESCO companies to comply with applicable local, state and federal safety laws and regulations. Our corporate team periodically performs environmental, health and safety compliance audits at our subsidiaries. This includes reviewing OSHA protocols for the following:

  • Training records
  • Machine guarding
  • Emergency planning
  • Egress
  • Injury recordkeeping
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Audiometric programs
  • Forklift safety
  • Electrical safety
  • Lockout tag out
  • Hazard communication
  • Emergency action plans
  • Cranes and hoists
  • Spray booths
  • Respiratory protection
  • General housekeeping

In addition, as required in our facilities and processes, we monitor air quality to ensure that we maintain exposure to dust, fumes, chemicals and/or hazardous substances below OSHA mandated levels. Our subsidiary, PTI Technologies, was recognized by Cal OSHA and received its Golden Gate Partnership Recognition/Certificate for its efforts in implementing and maintaining an effective injury and illness prevention program.

Our insurance carrier is also an active partner in helping us keep our facilities safe. Inspectors periodically visit our locations to ensure that our fire protection systems are operable and meet current requirements based on fire ratings. They also perform tests of our alarm systems, inspect our pressure vessels for integrity and check that we meet seismic requirements for fire protection piping and natural gas lines.


Employee Wellness

ESCO believes that when our employees are healthy, our employees and our businesses thrive. Nearly ten years ago, we implemented a wellness program to offer our team opportunities to follow a healthy lifestyle. Our subsidiaries each have wellness committees that champion these efforts. Our programming includes:

  • Fitness challenges such as “Maintain – Don’t Gain”
    and other programs
  • Classes such as lunch and learns, yoga and meditation
  • Health fairs at corporate and subsidiary locations
  • Volunteering and participation in events such as fundraising walks/runs/rides and other events in support of charitable organizations

The programs are tailored to the interests of the employees at each location and therefore activities vary by subsidiary.
