Compliance & Performance

The senior management team regularly reviews health, safety, and environmental performance. Management and supervisory staff are responsible and held accountable for allocating resources, implementing, participating, and maintaining the health, safety, and environmental management system necessary to comply with this policy, and are held fully accountable for compliance and performance.

Training & Accountability

Every employee whose work may create a significant health, safety, and environmental impact is trained and held accountable for complying with the principles of the policy and related standards, procedures, practices, instructions and rules.

“Safety is sacrosanct; it will not and cannot be compromised.”
