PST’s primary purpose is to prevent incidents from occurring by providing clients, and the communities they serve, with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for, mitigate, and avoid potential emergencies.
However, accidents still happen, and when they do, PST will be there to provide on-site emergency response support with competent and highly qualified responders.
Clients can be confident that PST's full range and depth of expertise will be available and accessible on all projects or responses. As a small company, we know the importance of understanding our client’s business goals and the company’s unique business culture.
PST prides itself on our flexibility and responsiveness to the needs of our clients. We believe in face-to-face meetings (both virtually and in person, with precautions taken) with our clients and making those meetings efficient, productive, and purposeful.
Because PST was born out of decades of expertise from both the regulatory and incident response sides, we have built a significant reach-back capability through a network of other experts, from both private and public sectors, to call on. This is one of PST’s differentiating factors.
