Built Around Safety
Safety comes standard on every Hunter worksite from ensuring every employee is properly trained and outfitted with the right PPE, to elevating engineering for the unanticipated blast. Since our company’s founding in 1999, Hunter has proudly led the charge for safety-focused practices and unsurpassed structures in environments worldwide. Every Hunter structure is designed and built in-house, ensuring quality control at every step. Through our collaboration with the best of the best in our industry, and third-party policy and site audits that help us pinpoint and improve upon weaknesses, we ensure we’re putting out the best possible products and services, each and every day.
Hunter is RL-2 designated and has twice been ranked by EHS Today as one of America’s Safest Companies. Our solid safety record regularly gains attention from industry leaders including the Industrial Safety Training Council, the Health and Safety Council and the Houston Business Roundtable.
Safety Starts with a Quality Team
At Hunter, it’s safety first, last and always. Our team regularly takes part in teambuilding exercises, award-winning quarterly safety days and training aimed at ensuring we’re operating in the most efficient, effective manner possible.
In our view, safety is everyone’s responsibility. Hunter has fostered a team dedicated to ensuring everyone makes it home at the end of each day in the same shape they were in at its start. We accomplish that goal by considering safety hazards at every stage of our work — beginning at the bid phase and continuing through a project’s completion.
Helping Houston Students Thrive
In 2018, Hunter proudly donated a 145,000-square-foot control room to Houston’s San Jacinto College’s petrochemical, energy and technology training program. The facility, which serves the college’s glycol distillation unit, is Texas’ largest petrochemical training grounds, and provides a hands-on opportunity for advanced students to learn the technical aspects and safety considerations of work in an industrial setting.
