Howard Electric recognizes the importance of Safety, Health, and accident
prevention in all aspects of our operations. It is the policy of Jess Howard
Electric Company to accomplish work in the safest possible manner consistent
with good work practices. This policy is based on a sincere desire to eliminate
personal injuries, occupational illnesses and damage to equipment and property,
as well as to protect the general public whenever the public comes in contact
with our work activities.
Each member of the management team is charged with the overall responsibility of preventing accidents and eliminating conditions that can lead to occupational illnesses. It is our management's responsibilities to provide safe work environment. Jess Howard Electric can only give meaning to health protection and accident prevention programs by taking positive action to ensure that safety and health rules are adequate and enforced, by seeing that effective training programs are employed. The safety and health protection and accident prevention requirements are set forth in our Health and Safety Program.
Health and Safety will not be sacrificed for production or schedule pressure. Management will not order, instruct, or permit any employee to perform work or do any job unless the work can be done safely. Similarly, employees will avoid engaging in work activities that they consider being unsafe. Safety briefings will be conducted regularly to reinforce the priority placed on workers safety and the importance of safety requirements over other considerations.
Jess Howard Electric is committed to comply with all applicable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards, state and local regulations and other requirements set forth to complete any project.
Jess Howard Electric recognizes that we must continue to stress health and safety and strive for improvement. Our goal is the elimination of all exposures or accidents from all operations for these reasons:
No endeavor is worthwhile if it causes human suffering through disabling injury or illness or loss of life.
A good health and safety record reflects the quality of management and our workforce. It is also good business and contributes to our continuing growth and success.
Poor accident experience increases costs and results in loss of profits. Each member of management will translate our policy into positive action, and enforce our position so that no safety infraction will ever be considered to be minor or insignificant.
