Safety

ThinkSafe


Seaboard Foundations believes it has the moral and ethical obligation to ensure that each of its employees returns home safely each day. It is our mission to provide all employees with a safe working environment, proper training, support and supervision. We believe that Safety belongs to each and every employee…..Starting at the Top.

Our Safety Goal

The construction industry in which all our businesses operate poses significant safety challenges but we do not accept that people will inevitably be injured while working for us or with us. Our ultimate goal is to have zero incidents through the effective management of safety in all our operations.

Our Safety Principles

Underpinning this goal are three fundamental Safety Principles:

All incidents are preventable
We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable.
We are all responsible for preventing and correcting unsafe behavior or work conditions.
No repeat occurrences
Reportable accidents and high potential near misses are investigated to determine the details and causes.
The findings and necessary steps to prevent recurrence are disseminated and implemented.
Maintain Safety Standards
We have adopted a common set of safety standards throughout Seaboard Foundations.
Management at all levels is responsible for implementing and maintaining the safety standards.

STOP WORK AUTHORITY – STOP any work that is UNSAFE

For these principles to be most effective, it is everyone’s responsibility to look out for fellow workers and speak up when observing unsafe activity. Everyone has the authority to stop work until it is safe without the risk of repercussions.

These Safety Principles define our safety culture, behaviors and performance standards and, in so doing, assist us in our progress towards eliminating injuries in our workplace.

Our Safety Policy

Our managers and supervisors are accountable for the safety of our people and are expected to provide effective leadership in safety. Management of every business or operation is responsible for following the Safety Principles and implementing and maintaining the Safety Standards. We set appropriate objectives against which to monitor progress toward zero incidents. All employees are responsible for good safety behavior and it is only by working together and recognizing that we all have a part to play in safety that we will really make a difference.

THINK SAFE, WORK SAFE, GO HOME SAFE
