It is our policy to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for all employees.
The safety of our employees is RowCon’s first priority; ranking above budget, production, schedule and/or quality.
Injury and illness losses from incidents are costly and preventable. We employ an effective accident prevention program that involves all its employees in the effort to identify, prevent, and eliminate workplace hazards. Our management team is accountable for preventing workplace incidents, injuries, and illnesses. We are committed to providing our employees with the proper training, tools, and equipment to perform their daily tasks in the safest manner possible.
Our management will provide top-level support of safety program initiatives and will consider all employee suggestions for achieving a safer, healthier workplace. We pride ourselves on staying informed about workplace safety and health hazards by actively engaging in the processes of safety surveys, near miss and incident investigations, management evaluation, and a regular review of company safety and health programs, policies, and procedures.
RowCon supervision is responsible and accountable for supervising and training employees in safe work practices and enforcement of these policies and procedures which are designed to protect employees from injury or illness. We employ clearing superintendents who are multi-year recipients of the Pipeline Contractors Association’s annual safety award for specialty contractors, and supervision sets the example for safety efforts throughout our workforce.
Our employees are expected and encouraged to participate in safety and health program activities including active participation in pre-job safety meetings, job safety analysis discussions, and safety committee rotations. Employees are also expected to report unsafe work practices, unsafe acts or conditions, near-misses, incidents, or accidents (including personal injury) to their supervisor immediately. The right to stop work goes beyond just a right; we believe it’s every one’s responsibility!
