Safety & Environmental Compliance

Contractor Environmental, Health, and Safety Management Program

The Southern Ute Growth Fund is dedicated to safety and environmental compliance in all operations. As part of our Contractor Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Management Program, we have established the Contractor EHS Expectations Policy and Procedure, which outlines and defines our minimum requirements and expectations while working at our facilities.

It is essential that these EHS rules and responsibilities are acknowledged and understood before starting work on Company property and/or projects. Please read, sign and return the signature page to your Growth Fund contract manager along with any other documentation requested.

All contractors are required to participate in the Southern Ute Growth Fund Contractor Safety Qualification Program. Some Growth Fund enterprises utilize Avetta, a third-party contractor safety management service, for the review and verification of contractors. The enterprise(s) with whom you are conducting business will advise you if registration with Avetta is required. Where required, contractors register with Avetta and then affiliate with the applicable enterprise. Avetta requires that information be submitted regarding the types of services provided, your safety program, safety performance (including OSHA Recordable Cases), Experience Modification Rate (EMR), and information on your insurance policies. Avetta reviews the information and, for “safety sensitive” contactors, performs an audit of your Safety Manual. Avetta will “flag” any items of concern and work with you to address them.

Growth Fund enterprises may have additional EHS requirements for contractors working on their facilities or projects. Please check with the Growth Fund enterprise regarding their contractor policies and procedures.

Thank you for your commitment to our cooperative Contractor EHS Program. Your continued safety is our primary goal!
