Safety Plans & Policies
The safety committee and each of the written management plans establish the foundation for a comprehensive safety process. The management plans define the implementation policies and procedures, the process for educating staff, and how we measure performance. In addition, these plans establish a formal organizational structure designed to facilitate the achievement of our safety goals and objectives.
