|Atlas's Safety Policy
It is the policy of Atlas Excavating, Inc. to strive for the highest safety
standards on our projects. Safety does not occur by chance. It is the result of
careful attention to all company operations by those who are directly and
indirectly involved. Employees at all levels must work diligently to execute the
company’s policy of maintaining safety and occupational health.
Our safety program has been developed to assure compliance with Federal, State
and Local regulations with particular emphasis on the Occupational Safety and
Health Act of 1970 (OSHA), and the OSHA requirements that apply to our
construction operations (29 CFR Part 1926 with Amendments of February 3, 1997).
It is the obligation of all employees to be knowledgeable of the standards
established by these agencies and to implement the rules and regulations
contained therein on projects under their direction.
Regard for the safety of the general public, our own employees and the employees
of our subcontractors are a supreme responsibility of all levels of our
organization. We intend to prevent any accidental injury, property damage, fire
damage and occupational illness. All of which could result in human suffering.
Accidents, even minor ones, cause pain, both physical and mental. Prevention of
injury and illness is a goal well worthy of our achieving.
A safe operation is organized, clean and efficient. If every employee views
accidents in the same way we consider all other aspects of our operations, we
will be in a better position not only to control accidents but also to improve
the total performance of our company. It is therefore of utmost importance that
all aspects of our safety program be strictly adhered to and that the intent of
the program be followed.
Atlas Excavating, Inc. recognizes that to make safety work, a commitment at the
top level of management must be made. Therefore, Janice Long has been designated
as Corporate Safety Officer and is charged with giving the Corporate Safety
Program all the commitment and priority it takes. Please contact Janice with any
questions or concerns.
