It is our policy to provide a safe and healthy work environment for everyone. A safe environment does not occur by chance. It requires everyone’s close attention and open communication between management and employees. Workers who notice hazards or other safety problems, or who believe that they need additional training, must notify their supervisors immediately. Supervisors and management must address the concerns of workers and make sure that any problems are fixed quickly.
Everyone is obligated to know and abide by the safety requirements and standards for their area or job. Through their own “pro-safety” attitudes and practices, supervisors must instill a positive attitude in workers. In return, employees must give training exercises and safety meetings the utmost attention and must follow all safety regulations. Compliance with safety policies is a condition of employment and must be taken very seriously. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action, including termination of employment for serious or repeated violations.
Nothing is more important to this company than your safety and that of your co-workers. Do not think that safety and health are somehow at odds with productivity and quality. In fact, they go hand in hand. Studies have shown that the safer a workplace, the more productive its workers and the better its products. Conscientiously follow safety rules at all times. Do not take shortcuts. Do not endanger your own life and health or that of your co-workers. Be safe so that you can stay healthy and enjoy life to its fullest.
