Health and Safety Statement
Management of Pacific Coast Fire Equipment is vitally interested in the health and safety of its employees. Protection of employees from injury or occupational disease is a major continuing objective. Pacific Coast Fire Equipment will make every effort to provide a safe, healthy work environment. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing the risk of injury.
Pacific Coast Fire Equipment, as an employer, is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety. As president of Pacific Coast Fire Equipment, I give you my personal promise that every reasonable precaution will be taken for the protection of workers.
Supervisors will be held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that machinery and equipment are safe and that workers work in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
Every employee must protect his or her own health and safety by working in compliance with the law and with safe work practices and procedures established by the company as outlined in the company Safety Manual. The employees of Pacific Coast Fire Equipment will be required to support our health and safety initiative and to co-operate with the occupational health and safety representative and with others exercising authority under the applicable laws.
It is the duty of each employee to report to the supervisor or manager, as soon as possible, any hazardous conditions, injury, accident or illness related to the workplace. Also, employees must protect their health and safety by complying with applicable Acts and Regulations and to follow policies, procedures, rules and instructions as prescribed by the Safety Manual. Employees will, where possible, eliminate hazards and, thus, the need for personal protective equipment. If that is not possible, and where there is a requirement, workers will be required to use safety equipment, clothing, devices and materials for personal protection.
Pacific Coast Fire Equipment recognizes the worker's duty to identify hazards and supports and encourages workers to play an active role in identifying hazards and to offer suggestions or ideas to improve the health and safety program.
It is in the best interest of all parties to consider health and safety in every activity. Commitment to health and safety must form an integral part of this organization, from the president to the workers.
