Safety Policy Statement
CHESTERFIELD STEEL CO. is committed to make every reasonable effort to:
a) identify and control exposures in our operations that can injure people, interrupt production, or damage property, equipment, and materials and;
b) comply with federal, state and local regulations.
This policy, put into action through implementation of our safety programs, training programs, and employee safety rules; is the basis for assuring an efficient, safe and healthful workplace for our employees. No operation is so important that it must be done in a manner that permits undue hazard to personnel, the public or property.
The Plant Manager is responsible for developing our loss control policies and has the overall responsibility for requiring that they be effectively implemented within the company. The Supervisor has the responsibility for effectively implementing these policies and procedures and taking disciplinary actions to ensure that employees live-up to their spirit. Employees are responsible for obeying the safety policies and safety rules to avoid injury and illness.
Safety and loss control policies are the direct responsibility of all management and they are as much a measure of efficient operations as reaching production and sales goals. Correction of recognized safety hazards and other potential loss hazards should be assigned top priority by the supervisor in charge. Safety and loss control are everyone's responsibility. All personnel, supervisory and production alike, must take responsibility for our loss control programs.
Failure to follow the policies, procedures, safety rules, safe work methods and OSHA regulations can result in disciplinary actions that can lead to and include termination.
Our objective for these programs is to reduce the number of injuries, illnesses, and property and properly maintain a productive work environment.
