Lubbock, Texas – Standard E&S, LLC, dba Standard Energy Services, announced today that it received a 2016 Platinum Safety Partner Award from Texas Mutual Insurance Company, the state’s largest provider of workers’ compensation insurance. Larry Homen of Texas Mutual presented the award on October 26 at Standard Energy’s corporate office. Accepting the award for Standard Energy Services was Pieter Bergstein, President, and Jack Yates, Director of Safety.
The Platinum Safety Partner Award is presented to companies that demonstrate their commitment to workplace safety by implementing an exemplary safety program and controlling their workers’ compensation losses. Standard Energy Services is one of only 200 businesses receiving this award out of 65,000 Texas Mutual policyholders across Texas.
“Receiving this award from Texas Mutual was a great honor,” said Bergstein. “Texas Mutual has been a strong partner, especially their Field Safety Specialist, Larry Homen, who adds his practical expertise to our safety meetings and supports our internal safety efforts.”
Standard Energy Services is an oilfield service company providing well service rigs and water hauling trucks in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico with 14 locations. They contribute their safety success to their 3SQ Mission Statement (Safety, Service, Satisfaction, and Quality) in that their employees have adopted the mission statement and the culture it represents in their everyday life.
Jack Yates is the director of the safety program, and attributes the program’s success to the efforts of the entire workforce. “Safety is not achieved by one person. It is all of our employees working together,” said Yates.
“In the end, we want everyone to go home the same way they started the morning; therefore, we always say safety starts in the morning when you get out of bed, look in the mirror, and tell yourself ‘I am going to be safe’,” added Bergstein.
