Building a culture where bringing near-misses and accidents into the open for discussion without repercussion is key to keeping the team safe! Every near-miss or accident is an opportunity to identify where something went wrong with people, process, or material ... investigate .. then act!
Sirius has built a culture of safety and understands that there is always room to improve. Improvement ultimately has to come from the team. Safety is not something that is best driven from the top down. Safety thrives when the team comes together and understands it is best for everyone and our families to watch out for each other and identify hazards before they become accidents.
Terry Moffatt, President
Sirius Controls operates in an industry, and with products, where the potential for accident exists. It is important that a Safety Program outlining policies and procedures be in place to minimize or eliminate these risks to our employees, our guests and to the general public. The ultimate goal of the Sirius Controls Safety Program is to prevent ALL accidents, improve work practices, promote better communication, and improve companywide attitudes about safety.
Sirius Controls is committed to the protection from accidental loss of all its resources, including employee and physical assets. In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, management will provide and maintain a safe and healthful work environment in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with legislative requirements, and will strive to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in property damage, accidents or personal injury/illness. All employees will be equally responsible for minimizing accidents within our facilities. Safe work practices and procedures will be clearly defined in the Safety Manual for all employees to follow. Accidental loss can be controlled through good management in combination with active employee involvement. Safety is the direct responsibility of all managers, supervisors, and employees. It is our objective that all management functions will comply with legislative safety requirements as they relate to planning, operation and maintenance of facilities and equipment. All employees will perform their jobs properly in accordance with established procedures and safe work practices. I trust that all of you will join us in a personal commitment to make safety a way of life.
