Ricon, Inc. is deeply concerned with accident prevention and control, and considers no other phase of its operation or administration to be of greater importance. Management also recognizes that accident prevention is a good business practice. Accident prevention assists in controlling unnecessary production costs, conserves skilled manpower, protects valuable equipment, machinery and materials from damage, and prevents the waste of time and effort. To accomplish the goal of accident prevention, it is necessary to state and strictly enforce an effective and understandable safety policy.
For the above reasons, it is the policy of Ricon to expect total commitment to providing and maintaining a healthy work environment from all employees. Adherence to operation and practicing procedures designed to safeguard the well being of personnel results in efficient and safe operations. Safety is the direct responsibility of all Ricon personnel.
