The primary purpose of our safety and health program is the prevention of the loss of life and all serious injuries. Therefore, it is the policy of Adena Corporation that all feasible and practical efforts be made to accomplish this.
Superintendents and Foremen are responsible for understanding the requirements of the program and ensuring that the program is followed on their job sites on a day to day basis. They are further responsible for providing leadership, motivation and instructions in safe work practices.
Superintendents and Foremen must also make sure that all employees have the appropriate and necessary PPE. In the event of an accident, it will be the responsibility of the Superintendent to investigate the accident and fill out all appropriate company paperwork. Pre-planning work and recognizing potential hazardous situations so that the proper safety procedures can be implemented is one of the most important responsibilities of the Superintendent and Foremen.
All Adena Corporation employees are responsible for their own safety and the safety of those working around them. It is imperative that all safe work procedures are followed. Employees must also report any unsafe condition to their immediate supervisor.
Job site safety inspections are our principle means of identifying and evaluating workplace hazards and shall be performed by the Director of Safety at least once a week. In addition to the formal weekly site inspections the site Superintendent, Foreman or Safety Committee member should be doing continuous site safety evaluation.
Workplace injuries/illnesses shall be investigated immediately after first aid and/or emergency medical treatment has occurred. The hazardous condition must also be corrected prior to the investigation. All employees that seek medical treatment in excess of first aid must be drug tested in order to return to the job site.
All Adena Corporation employees shall receive training on general and job specific safety and health practices. Training shall be conducted in the following areas: OSHA 10 and 30 Hour, Fall Protection, Trenching and Excavating, PPE, Concrete, Steel Erecting, Hazardous Communication, Scaffolding, Lockout / Tagout, and others as needed.
