Healthy, Safety & Environment

Strengthening Our ESG Impact Every Day

As one of the top three providers of land completions in the US, NexTier is committed to environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership in partnership with our customers. NexTier’s proven track record demonstrates this commitment, and we encourage all employees to maintain and strengthen our ESG impact every day.


NexTier is careful to address this often-overlooked element of HSE. We know healthy people are the foundation of a healthy business. To protect health at the worksite, all employees wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for the task at hand. We strive to foster an environment that promotes wellness and work-life balance.

We talk about safety a lot, and we know that safety culture begins with leadership accountability. Our core value of Take Responsibility reminds every employee that safety performance lies with each of them.

On any job, big or small, employees are empowered with Stop Work Authority. This mandate enables workers to immediately halt all operations if they observe any conditions or actions they believe to be unsafe. Our safety values and practices are supported through open communication across the company. They are supplemented by awareness campaigns to address any hazards our workforce may face.

Safety practices permeate our comprehensive competency and training programs, and they facilitate our industry-leading safety performance. Employees participate in behavior-based safety and hazard-recognition programs.
