Sawtech has compiled this health and Safety Policy &
Program to form the basis for all its employees.
The management of Sawtech considers the prevention of
injuries and the good health practices an integral part
of day to day operation. Sawtech will give every effort
to consider these practices when planning and operating
all company activities to help strive against accidents
and injuries. All levels of supervision have a personal
and individual responsibility for the safety of persons
whom report to them. Each employee must make a personal
commitment, through the observance of safety practices
and the reporting of unsafe working conditions, to make
a significant contribution toward their own safety and
that of their fellow workers.
To implement this policy Sawtech will consider all accidents
and illness preventive measures to be important to the
Company. Sawtech provides, as reasonable as possible,
the safe and healthy operation of its employees, equipment
and facilities, maintaining adequate first aid facilities,
maintaining training/educational programs on health and
safety operating procedures. Sawtech will also ensure
employees work in a safe manner, observe regulations set
out, and use safety equipment provided.
Sawtech will comply with the occupational Health and Safety
Act and all other related legislated requirements.
Accidents, as a result of unsafe acts or working conditions
or failure to obey safe practices, will not be tolerated
and must be kept to an absolute minimum. Every employee
must be encouraged to think and act in terms of their
own safety and the safety of others when carrying out
their tasks. Management directs that all employees conduct
themselves as outlined in this manual and that the requirements
of the Occupational Health and Safety Act are used as
a minimum standard only.
