Promoting Safety Through Leadership


At ACE we strive toward the highest level of safety in all activities and operations. The safety and well-being of our people is our first priority…everyone goes home safe every day. We are committed to continuously improving our health and safety programs, policies, procedures, and practices to ensure that all of our people are protected.

Safety-Focused Training

ACE’s safety training program encompasses regulatory training as required by OSHA, RCRA, DOT, state and local regulations. Additional training such as confined space entry and rescue, marine transfer, specialized training to work with hazardous or other wastes, and hazard recognition processes is also part of our safety program. Training updates are conducted monthly as part of operational meetings. At ACE, safety is more than just a program; it is a part of our culture. ACE’s Safety Team is actively involved in day-to-day operations within our organization, visiting job sites, mentoring employees, managing our programs, and implementing continuous improvement initiatives to help improve the level of service we provide our clients.
