Workplace safety policy
January 24, 2017
This policy will help ensure that your company facilities are safe for all employees, visitors, contractors, and customers. It is based on consensus best practices from several human resource standard-setting organizations, including the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Nonprofit Risk Management Center.
From the policy:
The company is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees, contractors, visitors, customers, and vendors in every facility and vehicle it operates. To achieve this goal, the company has established procedures, policies, and rules designed to ensure, to the best of its ability, the safety of every person located at one of the company's facilities or operating a company vehicle. All employees, contractors, visitors, customers, and vendors are expected to follow this policy at all times.
The company will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and enforce this policy in accordance with them.
This policy applies to all employees of the company, as well as all contractors, customers, visitors, and third-party vendors.
To ensure the safety of workers, customers, contractors, visitors, and vendors, the proper procedures, rules, and policies must be observed. The appropriate safety rules will be determined by the specific facility and the job to be performed. It is the employee's responsibility to know and apply the appropriate rules, so they should take time to learn them before entering an area or performing a particular job.
