Kilgore Companies LLC is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and productive work environment for every employee at all of our facilities and work sites. The health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers, the public and the environment are essential elements towards successfully completing every task we perform. We believe that risk reduction and the elimination of incidents is more than just good business it is our moral obligation. Safety is more than just words on paper, and is a core VALUE that is part of everything we do.
We also believe that in order to develop and sustain a world-class safety organization, our safety program must go beyond rules and regulations, and be heavily focused on people. Our employees are our greatest asset! They possess the experience and knowledge that makes them the most familiar with the risks inherent to our industry. To reduce risk, eliminate hazards, and ultimately make our work places safer we strive to leverage their talent by encouraging EVERY employee to be actively involved with our safety programs. Tireless support and leadership by our management team, along with the commitment and desire of all employees to eliminate injuries and other incidents will ensure a successful journey towards our goal of ZERO incidents.
We understand that it is not possible to include all the applicable federal, state and local laws rules and regulations for every conceivable job site condition in this manual. This manual establishes the minimum safety standards for managers, supervisory personnel and employees. It assigns responsibilities; establishes standard procedures for hazard evaluation, employee and supervisor training, program enforcement, incident investigation and record keeping; and lists the minimum incident prevention requirements for typical operations.
We will amend this incident prevention program periodically to keep I pace with legal and regulatory changes and recognized safe work procedures. Any questions of interpretation or suggestions for improvement should be directed to the Safety Department.
