This general company safety philosophy has been developed to reflect and communicate the proactive safety attitude maintained at Savard Labor & Marine Staffing, Inc.
The company will comply with appropriate safety and security laws and regulations such as those established by:
Eighty percent of all accidents are caused by unsafe acts. The other 20 percent are caused by unsafe conditions.
This reinforces the ideal that we must focus on changing behaviors through safety education to eliminate unsafe acts.
The goal of this activity is to create a Safety Culture. A safety culture is where the workforce knows, through the consistent activities of management, that a high level of safe behavior is expected and that work place injuries are a negative event to the corporation that will not be tolerated. This is a process whereby we move employees from complacency to involvement and onto empowerment where it is known that they have a duty and responsibility to prevent injuries to themselves and others.
