We have developed a comprehensive safety program that addresses our specific safety concerns and provides guidance for the performance of our individual job tasks within the framework of appropriate Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards.
Safety takes a commitment from all personnel within our organization. Training will be interactive with an opportunity for all to actively participate, ask questions, make suggestions, and refer to our written policies and procedures.
It is our policy to provide a work environment that is inherently safe. The safety and health of our employees is of primary importance as they are our most important resource.
Safety training needs will be identified by continual reassessment of our work methods, equipment and job sites as well as employee and management input. Observation of unsafe acts will be addressed immediately.
Each employee is encouraged to contact their Supervisor immediately should a safety or health risk exist so that corrective action may be taken immediately.
Safety requires not only that each person understand and perform individual tasks in a safe manner, but also that each individual is aware of his surroundings and is actively involved in the safety of others.
This Policy Statement will be conspicuously posted.
This comprehensive safety & health training program has been developed to address our specific safety concerns and to provide guidance for the performance of individual job tasks within the framework of appropriate Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) standards.
Safety demands a commitment from all personnel within our organization. As a contractor, we have an obligation to ensure that all our employees are afforded the protection of an appropriate safety & health program.
This program contains policies and procedures to deal with common workplace hazards, specific job related hazards, and potential hazards that may arise.
Hazard assessment, project pre-planning, and engineering controls, where feasible, will be the preferred method of providing a safe workplace. Hazards that remain will be minimized or eliminated through training which provides our employees the ability to recognize workplace hazards and understand the proper procedural and/or personal protective equipment requirements.
Each employee is encouraged to contact their supervisor immediately should a safety or health risk exist so that corrective action may be taken to eliminate the hazard entirely or deal with the hazard in a safe manner through modified work procedures, PPE, and/or other appropriate action.
On all job sites, at least one person will be designated a “competent person” by virtue of experience or training. This person will have the ability to identify work related hazards, know the corrective procedures, and have the responsibility, ability and authority to stop work if the workplace cannot be made safe.
The Safety Director or a designated competent person will make routine and random job site inspections to both identify new hazards and to monitor the effectiveness of our safety & health program.
In the final analysis, the success of our safety effort depends on all employees from senior management to the newest hire demonstrating a commitment to safety by working in a safe manner. Safe job performance is how our safety effort is ultimately measured.Stucco Bell International
