Safety and health are a shared responsibility. It is imperative that everyone, from the
management team to supervisors to each and every field employee, take ownership of his or her own safety and that of their co-workers.
Being safe on the job is not the other guy’s responsibility, it’s everyone’s. Each employee has a responsibility to locate and identify hazards and either correct them or report them to the proper personnel in a timely manner.
Where hazards cannot be completely eliminated, they must be reduced through proper use of personal protective equipment and other safety equipment as deemed necessary.
Through continuing safety education programs, each employee must be trained to work safely. Should an individual feel inadequately trained to perform a certain task, they must immediately discuss the problem with their supervisor.
Through weekly jobsite tailgate training and hazard communication, jobsite hazards are
reviewed and discussed to increase awareness and put the focus on safety.
As a condition of employment, each employee must consistently work in a safe manner.
Employees must use the appropriate personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of
injury to themselves and others.
The health and safety of our employees is of great concern. Each employee is expected to conform to OSHA and Cal / OSHA regulations. Field employees must undergo a safety orientation prior to entering field operations. Some of the training provided in our continuing safety education includes, Fork lift operation and safety, aerial lift operation and safety, trenching and confined spaces safety, fall protection as well as first aid / CPR just to name a few.
