We believe that safety begins with teamwork and is a shared responsibility between management, supervisors and employees. Managers and supervisors are responsible for ensuring that employees are trained in safe work procedures and for addressing all safety issues promptly. They are also responsible for promoting general safety consciousness in the workplace. Employees are responsible for incorporating the safety procedures of the health and safety program into their daily work routine and have a duty to promptly report to their supervisor any hazardous conditions or incidents that result in injury, property or equipment damage, product loss, damage to the environment, or any near miss incident that could have resulted in one of the above.
All of the employees of Ross Machine Shop and Armour Steel Fabricators are responsible for the success of our health and safety program. By working together to fulfill our health and safety responsibilities, everyone will share the benefits of a safe workplace. Through training and education, all of the employees of Ross Machine Shop and Armour Steel Fabricators are working together to create a safe workplace environment for everyone who comes through our doors.
