Management conducts regular inspections, holds regular safety meetings, and meets with supervisors and employees to plan and implement further improvements to our safety programs. It is the responsibility of management to maintain company equipment and provide education to employees that comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Legislation for the jurisdiction work is being conducted in; and in many cases comply with client requirements which are above and beyond legislative requirements. It is the responsibility of all levels of management and supervision to provide new employees with a General Safety Orientation before work commences. Further job-specific orientation occurs on the worksite before any work begins. This Health, Safety, Environment and Community Manual places special emphasis on regular consultation and cooperation between management and personnel to establish effective implementation of policies and procedures.
All levels of management, including, but not limited to supervisors and managers are held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. All management and company workers consider the risk to the environment before any work is performed. Management evaluates the detriments and benefits to communities and surrounding areas in which they operate, and all interactions are made with the best interest of the community in mind.
The cooperation of every employee is necessary to make Forged Drilling Company Ltd. a safe place to work. Employees have a duty to report unsafe conditions or hazards to their supervisor or to a member of the safety committee. Employees give earnest consideration to the rules of safety presented to them by poster signs, discussions with supervisors, posted company rules, and policies/procedures published in the Employee HSE Handbook. Every worker protects his or her endures. Any willful or habitual violation of safety rules are considered cause for dismissal.
