Our Commitment to Safety
We are steadfast in our belief that safety is the foundation upon which success is built. It is not just our #1 priority; it is the value that will not change regardless of production schedules or economic conditions. In order to create and maintain a safe work environment, we will continue to strive to achieve ZERO injuries by focusing on education, accountability, and developing a SAFETY FIRST culture.
Our philosophy is that the health of our business is directly dependent upon the health and safety of our associates. Operating as “One ERIKS,” we recognize that the responsibility for health and safety is shared. Management is committed to establishing safe working conditions that meet or exceed all legislative requirements or industry practices. Our associates are equally responsible to perform their jobs in accordance with these requirements as well as with established company safety policies and procedures. We not only assess potential risks to ourselves, but we also look out for and care for our colleagues. Every associate has not only the right but also the obligation to stop work when a condition or situation appears to be unsafe.
Continuous improvement in safety performance is critical and can only be sustained through collaboration, sound decision-making, and strong individual commitment. Our approach to safety is straightforward – the decisions we make today will ultimately define our success of tomorrow.
