General Comments

  • Accident prevention control is essential for the Company morale and Company existence and must be of prime importance to everyone.
  • Every employee has the right to expect a proper place in which to work, the proper machines and tools with which to do their job, so that they will be able to devote their energies to their work without danger to life and health.
  • The loss of earnings and physical injuries suffered by employees as a result of accidents are factors that, in themselves, justify a constant and intensive accident prevention program.

NOTE:  We are all responsible for recommendations on safer methods of operations, protective equipment and other measures to reduce hazards.  Ideas, suggestions or problems are welcome at all times.

Our safety program calls for active participation and requires continuous improvement .
