Safety is our core value

Zero is Everything

Zero is Everything - Airswift Global Safety Initiative

“Zero is Everything” is Airswift’s global safety initiative. Our employees work closely with all contractors and clients to promote safety awareness and safe work practices where zero incidents is the goal.

Global Statistics 

Airswift maintains safety statistics to help us monitor performance and keep safety as a core value (never sacrificed), including:

  • Injuries
  • Man-hours
  • Near misses
  • Injury-free days
  • Days away from work
  • Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)

Global Resources 

Airswift maintains accounts with three global resources, ISN, Avetta and PEC, that connect clients with safe contractors. These systems help our clients obtain safety materials that are needed to continue business (rates, stats, safety programs, certificates, etc.). Airswift has an “A” average with all clients.

Training & Tests

Airswift can assist with scheduling training and tests as well as tracking certificate expiration dates. Below are a few of the training and tests we help facilitate.
