EVANS believes that a safe and healthy workplace is a business imperative; our health, safety, and environmental programs are designed to strengthen our company culture. Workplace health and safety at EVANS is a working practice, an ideal integrated within all of our employees; it begins from our very first interaction with our client, through all operations, delivery, and installation.

Our adherence to strict safety standards is applied to all projects to ensure adequate prevention is in place for all workers. Our workplace health and safety policy require that we take responsibility for maintaining a productive workplace in every part of our company. In doing so, we minimize the risk of accidents, injury, and exposure to health hazards to all customers, contractors, visitors, and employees.

EVANS prioritizes this practice above all else. A leader in health and safety, EVANS is an active participant and member in Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) since 2000, and we are a current Certificate of Recognition (COR) holder. We use both lagging and leading indicators to strive for continuous improvement which has provided us with our COR accomplishment from continuous auditing and development of our health and safety program.

Environmental Overview

EVANS works diligently to ensure we manufacture environmentally-friendly products that positively contribute to our clients’ environmental standards, and to the health and well-being of their employees.

To minimize environmental impacts concerning our activities, products, and services, EVANS has developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) that uses ISO 14001 as a framework that allows us to: 

  • Comply with applicable legal and other requirements to which EVANS subscribes that relate to its environmental aspects;
  • Set environmental objectives to prevent and reduce pollution, waste and to minimize the consumption of resources;
  • Commit to continual improvement of the environmental management system to enhance environmental performance and;
  • Educate, train, and motivate employees to carry out tasks in an environmentally sustainable manner. 

We manufacture our products using low-emitting materials. All of our console products are GREENGUARD Certified for indoor air quality. Quarterly monitoring and an annual re-certification process screens for more than 10,000 potential volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to ensure we provide our customers with the highest quality materials, bolstering a healthier work environment.

GREENGUARD

We are committed to a healthier work environment by way of our GREENGUARD certified products that go through third-party indoor air quality tests. EVANS believes it is critical to take the right steps to protect all employees and reduce their exposure to indoor pollutants with safe products. EVANS is proud to have achieved UL GREENGUARD Certification for Indoor Air Quality of our entire product line of consoles since 2010. 

ISO 14001 - 2015

EVANS is ISO 14001 certified and employs this standard to specify how our Environmental System is formulated and maintained. We identify and quantify our products and services to minimize the carbon footprint, errors, and waste. Our rigorous procedures help manage the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of our products, services, and manufacturing processes.
