Your Safety Is Our Top Priority

Our Safety Philosophy

Everyone Goes Home Safely

Everyday. No exceptions. It’s pretty simple, really.

We believe that safety starts with every team member being actively engaged in the safety process, and everyone is empowered to stop work for safety’s sake. We actively encourage interventions for unsafe acts or conditions.

Working Safely Starts with You

Prior to the start of any task, all IST Team Members complete a job safety analysis. Before work ever begins, we want you to make sure you have the proper PPE on for the job, have identified and mitigated hazards in the area, and know what to do in the event of an emergency.

In our opinion, this is the most important task you’ll do.

Drug and Alcohol Screening

Before starting with IST, each candidate has to pass a pre-employment drug and alcohol screening, and are subject to “for cause” and post-incident substance abuse testing after becoming Team Members.

This is all to ensure our team is working safely at all times.

Nothing we do is worth getting hurt!

We’re Committed To Your Safety

We take your safety on the job seriously. IST Team Members work in some of the most challenging industrial settings, and we maintain rigorous safety standards to ensure a safe working environment for our team.
