The M.D. of Wainwright is committed to the protection from accidental loss of all its resources, including employees and physical assets.
In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, management will provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with legislative requirements, and will strive to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in property damage, accidents or personal injury/illness.
All employees will be equally responsible for minimizing incidents within our facilities. Safe work practices and procedures will be clearly defined in the Safety Manual for all employees to follow.
Loss can be controlled through positive attitudes towards safety and by the cooperative efforts of management, supervisors and employees. Safety is the direct responsibility of all managers, supervisors and employees.
All operations will comply with safety legislation and safe work practices as they relate to planning, operation and maintenance of facilities and equipment. All employees will perform their work in accordance with established procedures and safe work practices.
We will maintain a safety program conforming to the best practices of organizations of this type. To be successful, such a program must start with proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of both supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all health and safety matters, not only between supervisors and employees, but also between each employee and his or her co-workers. Employees are responsible for following all procedures, working safely, and when possible, improving safety measures. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety program of all be established and preserved in the best interest.
An injury and incident free workplace is our goal. Through continuous safety efforts, we can accomplish this and make our workplace a safe environment for all.
The safety information in this policy does not take precedence over the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations. All employees should be familiar with the Occupational – Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Code.
There is no job that cannot be performed safely.
