A Message from our President on Safety
STATEMENT OF COMPANY SAFETY POLICY
Our ironworkers are our most valuable assets. It is our policy that every person is entitled to a safe and healthful place in which to work. The success of the company will depend not only on production, but also how safely each job is performed. There is no job so important, nor any service so urgent, that we cannot take time to work safely.
Establishment and maintenance of a safe environment is the shared responsibility between the employer and employees at all levels of the organization. To this end, every reasonable effort will be made in achieving the goal of zero accidents, zero injuries and zero incidents.
G. Kidd Inc. will maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best practices for steel services. To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between supervisors and employees, but also between employees and their coworkers. Only through such a cooperative effort can an effective safety and health program be established and preserved. Together both management and the employees need to adopt the attitude and behavior that safety is an integral part of our business, a primary goal, and a primary consideration in the daily activities at G. Kidd Inc.
Because each project is unique, some of our procedures may need to be refined or expanded to meet the specific safety and loss control needs of a particular project. Safety is as critical to G. Kidd Inc.’s operations as planning, scheduling, or billing. It is an integral part of our routine operations. Furthermore, managers of G. Kidd Inc. believe that accidents are preventable, and that it is up to each of us to ensure that we practice safety as a routine part of our daily work.
I consider the safety of our personnel and our customers to be of prime importance.
Timothy J. Kidd
President – G. Kidd Inc.
