Utilitra’s greatest responsibility and highest value is to provide a safe and productive workplace for our employees and partners. Good Safety practices are good business practices. Our goal is to achieve zero incidents and injuries. To accomplish this, management will continually maintain and upgrade safety and property protection programs.
Safety is every employee’s right. Safety is also every employee’s responsibility. To reinforce our commitment to safety, training shall be an ongoing part of every employee’s job. Employees shall be empowered with personal initiative and common-sense approaches to confront the safety concerns of our industry. Every employee shall also be empowered to stop their job for any unsafe situation that they may encounter.
Utilitra’s corporate safety manager, with management support, shall ensure Utilitra will comply with all industry-accepted safe work practices as they apply to our operations, including safety requirements that are set forth in the OSHA General and Construction Industry Regulations. Additional safety guidelines for individual owners and/or utilities where Utilitra will perform work shall also be enforced.
In addition, out of concern for the health and safety of our workforce, the general public, our contractors, and our customers, Utilitra has adopted a company Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace Policy. Utilitra also adheres to the Department of Transportation (DOT) drug testing requirements set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) for safety-sensitive functions.
We will integrate safe work habits into every aspect of our company’s activities. Managers and supervisors at all levels shall be held responsible and accountable for maintaining maximum safety performance and incident prevention.
