Setting the Industry Standard

Providing the safest and healthiest workplace for our most valuable assets – our employees.

Being a part of the Quanta Services family we operate within the Quanta Human Performance Principles:


Failure can occur safely

It’s not if, it’s when. We will always plan and execute our work as if failure is going to happen today.


People make mistakes

Error is normal. Even the best people make mistakes.


Context Influences Behavior

Workers do what they do for a reason, and the reason makes sense to the workers given the context of the situation.


Violations are rarely, if ever, malicious

Blame fixes nothing.


Incidents can stem from normal deviations

How we imagine work takes place is different from how work actually takes place.


Management’s response to failure matters

Managers shape how the organization learns by the their reaction to failure.


Learning is a deliberate improvement strategy

Learning is a strategic and operational choice towards improvement


There is nothing more important than our employees going home safely.

“Rooted in our culture, Summit Line Construction’s Core Safety Values establish our uncompromising commitment to our employees, customers, contractors, and communities to provide the best-trained workforce and best-established work practices.  Summit Line Construction empowers every employee to create a work environment that focuses on preventing an incident while also applying effective methods to actively manage safe outcomes.  At the end of the day, there’s nothing more important than our employees going home safely.”

Our safety approach is centered on the people that make up our team

Our people have always been our greatest asset. We understand that people our fallible. The Capacity Model allows us to plan for failures, learn from them, and grow into a safer team. Our management believes strongly in the Capacity Model and will continue to lead our team through its values. At the end of the day there is nothing more important than our employees and their safety.

The Energy Wheel

The Energy Wheel is a hazard-identification tool that helps workers systematically look for types of energy. The Energy Wheel focuses on hazards that can cause a life-threatening, life-altering, or life-ending injury.

STKY Discussions

It’s important for crews to start focusing on STKY scenarios that could occur on their jobsite. Significant events are a result of a release or transfer of energy that can’t be absorbed safely. When high-energy exposure exists, we must have capacity to fail safely.

STKY discussions are brief talks that focus on identifying STKY and deciding how to deal with it. These should be part of normal job briefings but can be repeated throughout the day.

  1.  What’s STKY on this job site?
  2.  When a STKY event happens, what will protect you and the crew?
  3.  Is that protection enough, or do you need more? What else can you do to protect against STKY?

Summit Line Construction

Safety Programs

Summit Line Construction crews operate regularly from elevated surfaces.  Making sure that everyone is properly trained to execute their scope while working from heights. This program is administered to all Summit Line Constructions operations employees.

Every job site has its own unique hazards. Our job hazard analysis program prepares our crews to effectively mitigate potential hazards.

Our grounding and bonding program prepares Summit Line crews to limit the dangers of electrical potential.

Quanta AED Stories

The goal of our Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival for people who have sudden cardiac arrests.

The AED program is designed to provide equipment and training to enhance life safety response measures. AEDs make it possible for trained and untrained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

We deploy an AED on every job site across North America. We go above the industry standards and hold ourselves to the Quanta standard. Our AED program has so far saved 26 lives (including several civilians) and continues to be a life-saving success for our workforce and communities across North America and beyond.

AED units deployed: 10,984
Lives saved: 32

Stepping up to Supervision

This course explains the basic ideas, techniques and skills a newly promoted foreman/supervisor will need to master.  It identifies the tasks that lie ahead and presents strategies to help anticipate each new challenge and deal with them safely and efficiently.  Our foremen and supervisors are our first line of management and crucial for ensuring safety of all employees.

The Process:

Step 1: The senior manager has a one-on-one discussion with the newly promoted foreman/supervisor.  The discussion centers around the roles and responsibilities of that position, what to expect in the position, and where to obtain assistance and guidance.

Step 2: The newly promoted foreman/supervisor attends the first available Stepping Up to Supervision training session. This course is approximately six hours and begins the leadership development process.

Step 3: The foreman/supervisor may then attend the Supervisory Leadership Skills Outreach Training class (O.S.H.A. 20-hours) and/or the Pipeline Leadership Training class.
