HGS’s mission as a company is to protect the public and infrastructure assets of New Zealand, Australia and the wider South Pacific from the impact of geohazards. No less important is the health and safety of HGS crews while doing so. Because HGS considers our employees as our most valuable resource, safety is a core value at HGS and a part of our culture. Fast paced, cutting edge, and industry leading projects require a fast paced, cutting edge, and industry leading safety program. HGS employs a full time, dedicated safety team, maintains a written safety plan, and trains & retrains all employees in the most current practices of the industry. Through daily toolbox talks and weekly, monthly, and quarterly companywide training, HGS maintains the best safety statistics in the industry.
