Raymond’s Safety Department proactively develops programs to prevent incidents and address job site hazards, in our continued effort to achieve safety excellence. The Raymond Safety Program integrates elements described in the “ANSI Z10 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems” standard.
A Raymond executive leadership team was developed to review our safety program. Their recommendations have assisted us in reducing hazards and incidents. Raymond has also implemented a pre-employment and post-accident drug testing program effective January 1, 2003. This policy matches the current policy already in place in Nevada since 1993.
The Raymond Group is committed to protecting the safety and health of each employee as a value of the organization. The implementation of actions to help achieve a healthy, injury-free work environment is a leadership responsibility. To help ensure that policy commitments are translated into appropriate actions, we recognize the importance of employee participation. We have a commitment to continual improvement of employee safety and health. Finally, the organization must conduct operations in compliance with applicable law and regulations, as well as in conformance with its own safety and health standard. To assure the success of our policy, the company has implemented this Safety and Health Program. The program encompasses the following items:
- Identifying roles and responsibilities.
- Providing workplace safety practices.
- Conducting safety and health inspections to find and eliminate unsafe working conditions or health hazards.
- Investigating workplace accidents promptly and thoroughly to find the cause and to make corrections so that it does not happen again.
- Training all employees in good safety and health practices.
- Establishing communications regarding workplace safety and health.
- Developing and enforcing safety and health rules and requiring employees to follow these rules as a condition of employment.
- Recognizing employees for safe practices or performance, and counseling employees for failure to follow safe and healthful practices.
Raymond recognizes that safety is a shared responsibility. These responsibilities can be met only by working continuously to promote safe work practices among all employees and to maintain property and equipment in safe operating condition. By working together we can maintain a safe working environment for all employees.
Every employee has the responsibility and the right to refuse to perform work they believe is unsafe without fear of reprisal.
