It is the policy of Shamrock Valley Enterprises that the personal safety and health of each employee shall be of primary importance. The prevention of injuries and illnesses is of such consequences, that it will be given priority over any operating productivity. We will provide a safe and healthy working environment. We will establish and insist upon safe work practices that are to be utilized at all times by all employees.

The prevention of injuries and losses are objectives affecting Shamrock Valley Enterprises and its operations. It is, therefore, a basic requirement that each supervisor make the safety of all employees an integral part of his or her job function. It is equally the duty of each employee to accept and follow established safety regulations established by Workplace Health & Safety, as well as safe work practices & rules established by Shamrock Valley Enterprises.

Every effort will be made to provide adequate training to employees. However, if an employee is ever in doubt about how to do a job or task safely, it is his or her responsibility to ask a qualified person for assistance. Employees have the legal right and responsibility to refuse work in which they feel is unsafe or that they are not qualified to do, as defined by Workplace Health & Safety legislation. Employees are expected to assist management in incident prevention activities. Unsafe conditions must be reported immediately. Fellow employees that need help should be assisted. Everyone is responsible for the housekeeping duties that pertain to their jobs.

Every injury that occurs on the job, even a slight cut or strain, must be reported to the Safety Manager as soon as reasonably possible. Under no circumstances, except emergency trips to the hospital, shall an employee leave the work-site without notifying their supervisor. When you have an incident, everyone loses and everyone is hurt. Please work safely. Safety is everyone’s business.
