We recognize that the safety of our employees is of the utmost importance. The Safety Program is designed to aid employees and management in adhering to safe standards in our work place. The ultimate company objective is to prevent accidents and injuries to all employees.

We believe;

The successful operation of our company will depend not only on sales and service, but also on how safely each job is performed. There is no job so important nor any service so urgent that we cannot take time to work safely.
We consider the safety of our personnel to be of prime importance, and we expect your full cooperation in making our program effective.

Our Company is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all employees. We have developed our injury and Illness Prevention Program with the intent of reducing accidents and illnesses. Management’s goal is to have a zero accident rate. Our designated IIPP Administrator will implement and maintain this injury and Illness Prevention Program.

The IIPP Administrator reports directly to the General Manager/President regarding all safety issues. It is the responsibility of all supervisors to maintain a safe work environment for their employees. Management will closely monitor the accident rate in each department and act to reduce it. Any department supervisor that knowingly allows an unsafe act or condition to persist within their department will be subject to immediate disciplinary action that may include termination. Management expects to see a yearly decrease in the number of accidents in each department. All employee performance reviews will take into consideration the individual’s commitment to safety and their respective safety records. Management and department supervisors will be reviewed on their department’s safety records as well.

While it is the responsibility of management to maintain an effective level of compliance to safety standards, it is also the responsibility of all our employees to perform their jobs and conduct themselves in accordance with such standards. Working together, we can insure safe and health conditions for all employees. Therefore, each and every employee must be aware of, understand and participate in our Safety Program. All employees are to be encouraged to report and unsafe work act or workplace hazard without fear or reprisal. We have posted notices within each department that list the IIPP Administrator’s name, and/or Safety Manager’s name, a phone number and extension for anonymous reporting of unsafe conditions. We have also posted a Senior Manager’s name, address and phone number for reporting purposes. At each safety meeting, employees will be given a safety reporting slip to be used for reporting unsafe conditions. Any supervisor or manager who prevents an employee from reporting an unsafe work act or workplace condition will be terminated immediately.

The Company will allocate funds each fiscal year for improving safety within our organization. We are committed to a policy of safety first and foremost before productivity or profit. We expect full cooperation in all areas of the safety program and look forward to maintaining a safe work environment for all employees.

Safety Policy

Every employee should understand the importance of safety in the workplace. By remaining safety conscious, employees can protect their own interests as well as those of their co-workers. Accordingly, the Company emphasizes “safety first” and expects all employees to take steps to promote safety in the workplace. In keeping with this commitment, the Company has established an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) as part of its safety program. The IIPP Administrator has been delegated responsibility of administering and implementing the Program.

Compliance is Essential

Employees must understand that compliance with safety requirements is a condition of employment and will be evaluated, together with other aspects of an employee’s performance, as part of the performance appraisal process. Employees who are particularly effective in following safe and healthful work practices may receive recognition for their effectiveness. Due to the importance of safety considerations to the Company, employees who violate safety standards, cause hazardous or dangerous situations, or allow such conditions to remain when they could be effectively remedied, may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and possibly including termination.

It is therefore essential that all employees comply fully with the standards and practices of the company that are designed to promote a safe and healthful working environment. As part of our policy, the company has established programs to train and re-train employees, when appropriate, to assist them in avoiding dangerous or un-healthful conditions, and to remedy problems or hazards before they cause accidents or injuries. An employee should report unsafe conditions immediately to his supervisor, if he is unable to remedy the situation himself. If the supervisor is not readily available, the employee should immediately inform the IIPP Administrator.

Employees are strongly encouraged to report and unsafe condition, and need not fear any form of reprisal as the result of their report. Employees can choose to report the situation anonymously to the IIPP Administrator if they prefer and such action will not be held against the employee.
