Our goal to make Pattern Energy the best place to work in the industry starts with safety. We are committed to making sure everyone can do their job safely, and we seek to lead the renewable energy industry in safety performance.
Our strong safety track record is supported by ongoing training, and our governing structure calls for weekly safety reports from across the enterprise to be evaluated during meetings with executive leadership and the Board of Directors. Safety is the first agenda topic at every meeting of our Board of Directors.
Safety is woven into the fabric of our organization at all levels of Pattern Energy, including our senior management, CEO, and Board of Directors. Our commitment to health and safety begins with performance metrics that have a target of zero accidents or injuries, and the robust set of safety practices we’ve implemented across our operational facilities are designed to achieve this goal.
Employees have the right to use their “stop work” authority to halt activity if they perceive a hazard or have a safety concern, providing an opportunity to assess and resolve the situation. We promote safety awareness with monthly safety briefs that are broadcast via our internal employee e-newsletter and published in a printable format for distribution to our field crews and offices.
Pattern Energy aims to continually improve the safety performance of our field contractors through a variety of programs, which included implementing management cross-site audits in 2019.

Successful self-performance depends on hiring great people, giving them the right training and support, and empowering them to do great things. In support of our goal to lead the renewable energy industry in safety performance, we hire experienced staff and provide ample opportunity to hone their skills.
During construction activities, we take steps to preserve not only the safety but also the comfort of area residents during the construction process.
