Safety is Our #1 Core Value


Safety is our top priority. No operation proceeds until safety has been fully addressed. The safety and health of all our employees is not only critical to our success, it also reflects the collective commitment of every employee each and every day.




The health and safety of Dutra employees is our first priority. Our safety-first approach is a vital and effective resource in eliminating unsafe conditions, reducing injuries and remaining on schedule.

Each and every Dutra employee is required to continually pay attention to the prevention of accidents. Everyone is expected to turn safety into a daily habit.

Managers, supervisor’s and safety personnel provide support and mentorship to maintain safety standards and teach newcomers the best safety practices.

Unsafe acts and conditions are simply not tolerated. To achieve this, a progressive disciplinary process is employed as a tool to prevent future incidents.

We are committed to maintaining a culture that safeguards a healthy, productive and accident-free workplace environment that benefits every employee.

Safety team

Site Safety and Health Officers play an essential role in facilitating, overseeing, and promoting Dutra’s Safety Program. Safety Representatives, Facility and Project Managers have the authority and responsibility to ensure that the Safety Program is implemented, adhering to the highest safety standards. Every employee is expected to be aware of their personal Stop Work Authority, which, when implemented, is required to receive the full support of our management team.

The Harvey Freeman Award

Everyone at Dutra aims to live up to the safety standards set by Harvey Freeman. Harvey was a Heavy Lift Manager for many years and later served as Site Safety Manager at Dutra. He was pro-active in safety and open minded in understanding that safety and production could and should exist together.

Capacity, Capability & Character

Harvey's Legacy

In 2010, Dutra’s Safety Department introduced an annual safety award in remembrance of long term employee and member of the extended Dutra family, Harvey Freeman.

In his honor it was entitled the annual “Harvey Freeman Safety Award” and is presented at the company’s annual meeting. Harvey always exhibited the qualities of a dedicated employee whose main concern was the safety of his co-workers. These qualities included integrity, honesty, mutual respect and leadership.

This award is given on an annual basis to a current Dutra employee who demonstrates the qualities of which Harvey would be proud.
