Centennial employees can exercise “stop work” authority when subcontractors put themselves or others at risk.

Centennial Contractors Enterprises

Centennial Contractors Enterprises views project pre-planning and early communication with the health, safety, environmental and quality (HSEQ) team as the best way to eliminate or engineer hazards out of the work process.

Centennial routinely provides its project staff with tools and resources to pre-plan and identify hazardous acts or conditions by proactively addressing potential hazards and processes instead of reacting when faced with challenges or adversity. Hazard recognition is not a skill gained only through attending health and safety courses, but a performance-based standard that is necessary to effectively pre-plan for safety.

Centennial also promotes the advancement of its HSEQ staff through professional development courses at no cost to employees. The company’s HSEQ staff members hold numerous professional certifications offered by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals, National Registry of Environmental Professionals, and the International Board for Certification of Safety Managers.

The effort required in developing an outstanding health and safety culture and climate at Centennial has been an ongoing commitment carried out through the calculated actions of every employee.
