Safety is our driving force, not production

Stewart’s Grading & Hauling has established this written safety program in accordance with OSHA Regulations. It is our policy to provide a safe and healthful workplace for our employees, to observe all State and Federal Laws and Regulations and to provide an environment as free as possible from recognized hazards. We have and will continue to maintain and implement a comprehensive employee Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP).

Incident prevention is our goal. This safety program is designed to train our employees to follow safe practices and to recognize and correct unsafe working conditions. We are always working towards improvement. Safety is a part of each employee’s job. Active participation and adherence to the Safety Program is a condition of each employee’s employment. No employee is required to work at a job that he or she knows is not safe; therefore, we must work to make every workplace safe by detecting and correcting unsafe working conditions as well as the detection of unsafe work practices.

The main objectives of Stewart’s Grading & Hauling’s Safety Program are:

  • To protect people (employees, and others), property, and the environment from potential hazards
  • To provide a flexible, uniform policy of safety management consistent with the requirements of the government safety, health, and environmental regulations
  • To establish and maintain an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program involving all levels of the organization including managers, supervisors, and employees
  • To cooperate and assist clients, customers, and others involved in the work area to maintain a safe and healthful workplace
It is our goal to completely eliminate accidents and injuries. Because of the many different hazards of our industry, we must maintain a constant safety awareness to achieve this goal. If a job cannot be performed safely, it must not be done until it can be done safely.
