Safety Commitment

Why is safety important to us?

There are many costs to accidents and unsafe work practices. The greater of these costs are human costs. By protecting our employees we are also protecting their friends, families, fellow workers, management, the public and the environment from the far reaching effects of serious accidents. We are also protecting our ability to continue to do business and employ people.

In addition to protecting lives, our safety program contributes to employee morale and pride because our employees participate in identifying safety needs and developing safe work procedures.

What are the alternatives to safety?

Employees, contractors and subcontractors who knowingly violate safety rules may face disciplinary action, dismissal or legal action. Visitors may also face legal action and fines for violations of regulatory requirements. Those individuals who do not fulfill their safety responsibilities will become accountable for any problems their negligence creates and may be liable under the law.

Who is responsible?
