Director of Safety—Chad Breneman

Ecotech Hydro Excavation’s Director of Safety Chad Breneman comes from over 20 years working in the residential construction field. Through training and field experience at Ecotech, Chad was able to see that the safety policies were put in place to make sure none of the team was in danger—especially when working near 230,000 volts of electricity.


Since working at Ecotech, Chad has improved company policies and training employees on these policies. He has also made sure that the company is OSHA compliant in every aspect, which included 30-hour OSHA and HAZWOPER 40 trainings, including flying to Houston for an Excavation Safety “Train the Trainer” seminar. Chad continues his learning by attending safety meetings, speaking with safety professionals, extensive research, and more.

“I realize how much I have learned in my short three-and-a-half years with Ecotech,” Chad reflects, “and I now feel that Ecotech is my family. I care about each individual, not just because it’s my job but because I want to protect my ‘family’ to the best of my ability.”
