Workplace Safety Programs

We have the Workplace Safety manual, MSDS manual, and Company Policy manual in place.  Our Workplace Safety manual contains over 85 different programs as you will see below.  These manuals were developed by Chatman Sieben who is our Administrative/Safety Director.  We provide workplace safety training and meetings to our employees at intervals as mandated.

RE:  Statement of Company Policy on Workplace Safety

To our employees:

The personal safety and health of each employee of Sieben Equipment Service, Inc., is of primary importance.  The prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses is of such consequences that safe working conditions and practices will be given precedence over operating productivity whenever necessary.

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 emphasize injury and illness prevention on the part of both management and employees.  It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between management and employees, but between each employee and his or her co-workers.  Only through a cooperative effort can a safety program in the best interest of all be established and preserved.

Our safety and health program will include:

**Providing physical safeguards from injury to the maximum extent possible

**Striving to elminate hazards through engineering controls whenever possible

**Conducting a program of safety and health inspection to detect and eliminate unsafe working conditions or practice to control health hazards, and to comply with the safety and health standards for our      jobs

**Training employees in safe and healthful work practices

**Providing personal protective equipment (PPE) required on designated jobs and instruction for its correct use and care

**Developing and enforcing safety and health rules and requiring the employees cooperate with these rules as a condition of employment

**Investigating promptly and thoroughly of all accidents and near-miss situations to determine the root causes and to correct the problem in order to prevent recurrences.

Our objective is a safety and health program that will reduce injuries and illnesses and that surpasses the best experience of other operation similar to ours.

RE:  Occupational Health and Safety Program

To our employees:

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 clearly states our common goal of safe and healthful working conditions.  The safety and health of our employees continues to be the first consideration in the operation of this business.

Safety and health in our business must be a part of every operation.  Without question, it is every employee’s responsibility at all levels.

It is the intent of this company to comply with all laws.  To do this, we must constantly be aware of conditions in all work areas that can produce injuries.  No employee is required to work at a job he or she knows is not safe or healthful.  Your cooperation in detecting hazards and in turn, controlling them is a condition of your employment.  Inform your supervisor immediately of any situation beyond your ability or authority to correct.

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 consequences 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.  In addition, obtain a copy of the Stop Work Policy.

We will maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best management practices or organizations of this type.  To be successfully, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention not only on the part of supervisors and employees, but each employee and his or her co-workers.  Only through such a cooperative effort, can a safety program in the best interest of all be established and preserved.

Our objective is a safety and health program that will reduce the number of injuries and illnesses to an absolute minimum, not merely in keeping, but surpassing, the best experience of operation similar to ours.  Our goal is nothing less than zero accidents and injuries.
