“Leading by Example”
- Injuries, incidents, and occupational illnesses can be prevented.
Link-On is committed to protecting the health and safety of our employees, contractors and the general public. Our goal is to have zero injuries, incidents or occupational illnesses. Striving for anything less than “zero” can lead to the false belief that injuries, incidents and occupational illnesses are inevitable and acceptable. Following the company’s policies and procedures is a basic requirement in protecting the health and safety of workers and the public.
- Management is accountable for health & safety.
Management is accountable for the safe operations and the health and safety of the workers under their direction. This includes accountability for establishing and maintaining a safe work environment, including establishing Policies and Procedures, providing the proper equipment, completing appropriate training, fixing deficiencies promptly, and ensuring processes for continuous improvement are reviewed. Staff members at all different levels serve and participate in different health and safety committees and groups.
- Employees/contractors are responsible for safety.
People are the most important element of the health and safety program. Employees and contractors are expected to take personal accountability for their safety, that of their co-workers, and the safe operations of our assets; involvement is the cornerstone of a safe, interdependent workplace. Our success in safety depends on all levels of the organization being personally accountable for consistently adhering to Policies, Procedures, Regulations, Codes and Standards; working safely is a condition of employment.
- Assessment and improvement is a must.
We are committed to proactively managing our safety performance through observations, inspections, assessments, process hazard reviews, investigations, quality control/assurance procedures, etc., in a way that supports our drive to zero injuries, incidents and occupational illnesses. Deficiencies revealed through these processes, and other investigations are promptly addressed and communicated.
- We promote off-the-job health and safety for our employees.
The Company’s concern for the health and safety of employees extends beyond the workplace. An off-the-job injury is as painful and impactful as one suffered on the job. Employees are encouraged to demonstrate their leadership and excellence in health and safety practices for the benefit of their families, friends and community.
