The personal safety and health of each employee of this company is of primary importance. The prevention of occupationally-induced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it will be given precedence over operating productivity whenever necessary. To the greatest degree possible, management will provide all mechanical and physical facilities required for personal safety and health, in keeping with the highest standards.
We will maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best practices of organizations of this type. To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of both supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between supervisor and employee, but also between each employee and their fellow workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety record in the best interest of all be established and maintained.
Our objective is a safety and health program that will reduce the number of disabling injuries and illnesses to a minimum, not merely in keeping with, but surpassing, the best experience of other operations similar to ours. Our goal is ZERO accidents and injuries.
Venable's Construction believes that it is our common goal to respect and protect our environment. It is our goal to provide a safe and well-maintained Company that meets the needs of our customers and the environment we live in. We must meet the requirements of environmental laws along with the concerns of owner companies we work for. We must prevent pollution and respond to incidents quickly and effectively. We must demonstrate our care for and commitment to the environment and community we live in. It is up to each employee to incorporate these principles of safety, environmental stewardship and customer focus into their daily activities.
