The management of the Harlingen WaterWorks System is committed to providing employees with a safe and healthful workplace. The organization has embraced the concept that safety is YOUR responsibility and can be proven with the decrease in occupational related injuries, decrease in worker’s compensation claims and the removal of the company name from the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission (TWCC) hazardous employer list. All HWWS employees are aware of the potential hazards associated with their job duties and are continuously being trained and/or provided with the necessary equipment to remediate these potential hazards. WaterWorks employees are provided safety training in the following areas including, but not limited to: Confined space entry; trenching/excavation safety; HAZMAT; HAZWOPER; CPR/First Aid; Fire Extinguisher; and Traffic Control. The HWWS has established safety as the top priority when it comes to job performance and is currently striving to meet their goal of zero (0) lost time accidents.
