Safety Policy

Safety Mission

Recognizing that the Safety and Health of our employees is crucial to our long term success, we will insure that Operation and Management activities will be accomplished without harm to our Employees, Customers and the Public.

Safety Philosophy

A safety program must always start with a management team that wants a safe operation.  Employees will work safely only to the degree of management expectations.  Management interest must be vocal, visible and continuous.

Safety Objectives

  1. A safe working environment is to be provided.
  2. Conformance to accepted Safety behavior is a condition of employment.
  3. Safety education is vital to working safely. Everyone must be trained again and again.
  4. Managers are ultimately responsible for the safety of their people, customers and the public. 
The Golden Principal

All Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Can Be Prevented.

Every attempt will be made to reduce the possibility of accident occurrences.
