Health & Safety

At Moretrench, our people are our most important asset. Providing a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, as well as for subcontractors and visitors to our premises or field operations, is our first priority.

The company administers a comprehensive health and safety education and training program managed and coordinated by a designated in-house Safety Officer. And our workforce, from the company President to the newest junior staffer, is committed to putting that education and training into practice in the field, in the shop, and in the office.
