SAFETY POLICY AND PROCEDURES MANUAL

Your company is committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment for every employee. Toward that end, an established Health and Safety Program guides the company in all its operations. All personnel will observe the rules and procedures in this program, as a moral and legal responsibility and as a sound business policy.

All members of management and supervision are charged with the responsibility of preventing incidents or conditions that could lead to occupational injuries or illness and for developing the proper attitude of employees toward accident prevention, instructing employees in the recognition of hazards and insuring that all operations are performed with the utmost regard for safety.

While the ultimate success of a safety and health program depends upon the full cooperation of each individual employee, it is management’s responsibility to provide a safe environment in which to work. The Health and Safety Program is designed to reduce the number of injuries to a minimum. Unfortunately, when accidents occur every segment of our operation, as well as the lives of our employees and their families, suffers. Therefore, our Health and Safety Program shall be interwoven into every phase of the business and will be enforced uniformly, consistently and swiftly. Baldwin’s Comprehensive Health & Safety Manual provides a format or template to follow in achieving a safe place to work.
