We believe all injuries, occupational illnesses, and environmental harm can be prevented through good communication, using the tools in our Safety Management Systems and engaging all personnel in the preplanning of every task and maintaining a continual focus on the task at hand by the minute, the hour and throughout the day.
We believe nothing is so important or urgent that we cannot take the time to do it safely. Safety is the ultimate measurement of High Performance, which, in turn, leads to improved cost, profitability, quality, and crew morale. Safety is our priority.
We believe it is our responsibility to protect new employees, and they will succeed when given respect and the knowledge they deserve. New employee orientations, on-site orientations, and the on-site training are tools that we know help to develop valuable, long-term Gorilla Netting employees.
We believe all employees should have a voice that is heard without criticism.
We believe safety is everyone’s responsibility, and supervisors must lead by example because actions speak louder than words – “I hear what you say, and I see what you mean.”
We believe management has a responsibility to educate and train employees to work safely. People act in ways that make sense to them and informed employees make logical decisions.
We believe the highest level of employee performance is determined by standards set by Gorilla Netting and consistently maintained by all site supervisors. Standards are established when understood. Standards are maintained when followed.
We believe housekeeping at our location is the first step in creating a safe work environment and a direct reflection of our safety standards.
We believe working safely is a condition of employment. You have the right and responsibility to refuse unsafe work.
We believe all equipment and operating exposures can be safeguarded. It is everyone’s responsibility to identify deficiencies and create awareness to assure corrections are made immediately.
We believe Target Zero is achievable through personal intervention and safety observations while utilizing a questioning attitude, such as:
- If the unexpected happens, could I or someone else be injured… “Is it time to Step Back?”
- How can this job be done safely?
- Have we completed and reviewed an observation, critical procedure, or JSA (Job Safety Analysis)?
We believe “It’s People, It’s Personal.”
Gorilla Netting people doing the right things, applying their knowledge, and utilizing the tools available will create a culture that will reduce the risk of injury on and off the job.
WE WILL ACHIEVE TARGET ZERO
