It is the belief of Walzel Technical Services, Inc. that our people are our most important asset and that the preservation of employee Safety and Health must remain a constant consideration in every phase of our business. It is our intent that accident prevention be a primary importance in all phases of operation and administration.
The prevention of accidents is an objective affecting all levels of our company and its operations. It is therefore, a basic requirement that all supervisors make the safety of all employees an integral part of his or her regular function. It is equally the duty of each employee to accept and follow established safety regulations and procedures. Our safety and health program must have total employee involvement. Therefore, our program has management’s highest priority, support, and participation.
Our policy covers hazards and rules, which are applicable to all of the company’s projects. Some of the hazards pointed out are not followed by specific rules, because the situation may differ sufficiently from one jobsite to the next so as to cause the rules to differ. In these cases, our policy refers you to local supervisors or safety representatives for specific rules governing the employee location. At all times, the most stringent rules apply with the intent to maintain a safety and Health Program that observes standards of conduct consistent with the best practices of the industry.
It is the duty of each and every employee to know the safety rules, and conduct his or her work in compliance with those rules. Every effort on our part will be made to provide adequate training to employees. If an employee is ever in doubt about how to do a job or task safely, Walzel has an open door policy where any employee can ask questions and express concerns in order to alleviate such doubt. Employees are expected to assist management in accident prevention activities as well as demonstrate responsibility by actively caring for his or her own safety and the safety of their fellow co-workers.
