At work, at home and on the road
Our culture of safety begins with our Be Safe principles – Be Smart, Aware, Focused and Equipped. The information emphasizes keeping V Teamers safe at work, at home and while on the road. We created 15 new courses during 2017 to educate about best practices and working safely with evolving technology such as small cells. Training topics included aerial lift safety, lead awareness and exposure, pole removal and equipment transfer, pole climbing and radio frequency. Our occupational injuries and illnesses rate was 1.30 per 100 employees, well below the Bureau of Labor Statistics telecommunications industry average of 2.0.
