General Workplace Safety Rules

Purpose

The Company's primary objectives are to ensure the safety and health of our Employees, and to protect company property. Our goal is to provide safe and healthful working conditions for all Company Employees

Safety Rules have been developed with input from Supervision and Employees. While held to a minimum, the rules address behaviors and work practices that can lead to accidents and injuries

Each Employees should become familiar with and follow General and Departmental Safety Rules. Supervisors must enforce Safe Work practices through strict adherence to Safety Rules.

Most accidents can be prevented if everyone uses assigned safety equipment and follows the established safety rules. To operate a safe and successful business, we must work as a team to

THINK SAFE, WORK SAFE, AND BE SAFE
