We will drive undistracted.
We will Observe, Identify & Eliminate unsafe conditions prior to work being performed.
We will report all Unsafe Conditions, Near Misses, and Incidents immediately to our supervisors and the HSE Department.
We will learn from Near Misses and Incidents to prevent recurrence of the same condition.
We will adhere to the Percheron Drug & Alcohol Policy.
We will exceed client and regulatory safety requirements.
We will never put project timelines in front of Health & Safety of our employees.
We will use the appropriate PPE at all times.
With this commitment in mind, the management team created an internal Percheron Safety Committee. The committee is made up of 10 total members, at least 1 from each department of the company. They meet monthly to review any previous incidents or near misses, develop internal employee training, implement companywide safety initiatives, and discuss client-related safety requirements. These members work behind the scenes and contribute to the development of a safety-first culture within the company.
Percheron has in place a comprehensive safety program. The program contains our policies and procedures, our plans and forms, and our codes of safe practice that we use to work toward providing a safe work environment. The intent of the safety program is to enhance and supplement the safety and health standards required by federal, state, and local laws, and to enhance and supplement the health and safety standards required by contracts to which Percheron is a party. The program was developed in accordance with OSHA standards and with other rules and regulations where applicable.
Percheron reinforces its commitment to its safety mission by the incorporation of a performance evaluation standard in the annual performance evaluation of employees.
When a hazard is found by OSHA, each employer on the job is tagged as either creating, exposing, correcting, or controlling. In fact, at times, an employer can be characterized as more than one type of employer. With so many different types of employer tags, it is important to understand each type so that you can have a plan for responding to hazards and keeping everyone on the job site safe.
