Safety Initiative

The purpose of management led safety  is to demonstrate a visible commitment to safety by upper management, supervisors, and employees. This culture will share an unshakable belief among all employees that the safety of people and property is not to be compromised, cannot be delegated and requires active participation by all and is not dependent on one or two people for its success. Safety is everyone’s responsibility in order to ensure a safe and healthy work environment.
