Safety & Environment
Health, safety and environment management (HSE) utilizes a holistic approach to employee wellness. It takes into consideration their work and personal lives. From safety practices to gym memberships to a solid employee assistance program (EAP), Cougar is there for its employees.
Cougar Helicopters Inc. is committed to providing all employees with a safe and healthy working environment. We strive to provide our staff with the very best safety measures available in today's marketplace. The safety department personnel monitor the safety equipment, address any concerns, attend customer safety meetings and attend Cougar's HSE committee meetings. Cougar is also now certified as a "Heart Start Company" which means we have an automatic electronic defibrillator on site.
Our facilities are consistently monitored for safe practices. Our monthly safety inspections, safety audits and employee buy-in to company safety culture, ensures concise reporting and mitigation of all safety concerns.
Further, our program includes ergonomics to the highest degree. Various initiatives have been completed to ensure that safe and healthy workstations are available to all our staff. Cougar also stresses the importance of physical education and activity by offering fitness center membership discounts at the local gym.
We believe that healthy employees with a sound safety attitude are productive employees.
