Health & Safety Policy
Consistent with our core values, we conduct our operations in a manner protective of human health and the environment. Our company is committed to providing a safe working environment that incorporates health and safety as a main priority in all operational procedures. Safety is an extremely important issue to the company for the well-being of the environment, as well as the public and employees, and is a non-negotiable element of all work activities. This allows us to provide services without slowing the project down unnecessarily as changing conditions develop, or safety issues arise.
Safe or Stop
Stop! Think! Act!
As part of our culture, the “Safe or Stop” program is part of each employee’s daily work. Employees are expected to identify, stop and protect both fellow workers, customers, and the general public from unsafe hazards or conditions. It is each person’s responsibility to ensure their own safety along with their co-worker’s safety.
It is comprised of 3 main principles:
- I have the authority and responsibility to stop work if I have a safety concern.
- I share the responsibility for my safety and that of my coworkers.
- I will ask a knowledgeable person for assistance whenever I am unclear on how to proceed in a safe manner.
Continually reinforcing this culture and the practice that every team member is responsible for safety and compliance has continually driven incident rates, injuries, vehicle accidents and environmental compliance matters down…. “Driving to Zero”
