The objective of our safety program is to prevent accidental injuries. We are committed to provide safe and healthy working conditions for all employees and our clients. if you observe unsafe conditions at your work site, report these potential hazards to your immediate supervisor. A reporting form is provided at your site. Each site is required to perform monthly premise self-inspections and document the results. Be sure that any unsafe conditions are brought to the attention of the person(s) responsible for conducting the inspections and are noted on the inspection form.

If you encounter a container without a label, it is your responsibility to notify your supervisor. Labels and MSDS's are your guides to working safely with hazardous materials.
