SAFETY POLICY STATEMENT

The Branch Group is firmly committed to operating all projects in a safe, efficient manner and in compliance with all applicable safety, health and environmental regulations. Our goal is to provide an injury free work environment where projects are free of recognized hazards; and people, equipment and the environment are not placed at unreasonable risk of injury or damage.

The employee-owners are our most valuable assets. While quality and productivity are critical to our operations, they will never take precedence over the safety of personnel or protection of the environment.

While the ultimate responsibility for Heath and Safety within The Branch Group rests with Senior Management, this responsibility will be delegated through all lines of management with the expectation of full cooperation and commitment.  A unified team effort from all levels of the organization is required to accomplish our goals. Safety must be planned into all of our activities and receive the same level of attention as quality and productivity.

Teamwork and compliance with all Branch Group safety standards, procedures and rules will help us achieve our goal of an injury free work environment. Your cooperation and active participation in The Branch Group’s safety process and compliance with all Branch Group Safety Policies and Procedures is expected and appreciated, anything less is unacceptable.
