PEOPLE ARE OUR MOST IMPORTANT RESOURCE, AND THEIR SAFETY IS ONE OF OUR PRINCIPAL RESPONSIBILITIES.  SAFETY MUST BE A KEY PART OF ALL OF OUR LIVES. THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF OUR FLEET SAFETY PROGRAM IS ZERO PREVENTABLE ACCIDENTS EACH YEAR. THIS SAFETY PROGRAM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN RECOGNITION OF THE RESPONSIBILITY OF MANAGEMENT TO ESTABLISH PROCEDURES FOR THE PREVENTION OF ACCIDENTS.

SAFETY OBJECTIVES ARE TO:

  • PROVIDE AN ACCIDENT AND INJURY-FREE WORK ENVIRONMENT
  • REDUCE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
  • COMPLY FULLY WITH ALL LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS

THE ACHIEVEMENT OF THESE OBJECTIVES IS BASED UPON THE FULL COOPERATION AND ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF ALL COMPANY EMPLOYEES IN THIS FLEET SAFETY PROGRAM. THE EFFICIENCY OF ANY COMPANY CAN BE MEASURED BY ITS ABILITY TO CONTROL UNNECESSARY LOSSES. A VEHICLE ACCIDENT RESULTING IN PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR EQUIPMENT LOSS REPRESENTS NEEDLESS WASTE. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL SUPERVISORS RECOGNIZE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTROL THESE LOSSES AND THAT THEY TAKE ALL NECESSARY STEPS TO DO SO. ALL EMPLOYEES MUST ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PREVENTING ACCIDENTS AND AGREE TO THE SAFE OPERATION OF THE COMPANY OWNED VEHICLES AND PERSONAL VEHICLES WHILE ON COMPANY BUSINESS. WE MUST BE SO SUCCESSFUL IN OUR SAFETY EFFORTS THAT THE ELIMINATION OF VEHICLE ACCIDENTS IS NOT JUST AN OBJECTIVE, BUT A WAY OF LIFE.
