Safe working environments and the prevention of work related injuries has always been the single most important element of any TPC project, safety is given precedence over productivity. TPC provides its employees with the latest mechanical and physical equipment required for the safe and effective completion of our projects. The main objective of the TPC "Safety Program" is to ensure that work related injuries are prevented by ongoing safety practices. Our goal is zero accidents and injuries!
All TPC employees are required to participate in the companys safety meetings which are held every three (3) weeks. The purpose of these meetings is to provide current safety program guidelines, and to also address any employee safety concerns. Whenever a new practice or procedure is introduced into the work place it is thoroughly reviewed by TPC management to ensure adherence to the existing safety guidelines.
TPC believes that the best way to create a safer work place is to study industry wide statistics concerning accidents and worker compensation complaints. TPC project supervisors are responsible for inspecting the work areas daily, and also to observe for any unsafe practices while the employees work. Each employee is responsible for inspecting their own work place each day, and If an employee finds a hazard or danger, it is their duty to inform the project supervisors of the condition immediately.
Our company safety policy represents a commitment to protect our employees, customers, and the public. The "Stop Work Policy" safety program is well known throughout
the industry and assures that our safety performance is a result of continual evaluation and implementation of company and industry-wide best practices. The results are that our safety performance continues to improve year after year The OSHA recordable rate has improved every year. We strives to achieve safety excellence with our ultimate goal of "Nobody Gets Hurt."
