To All Employees:
It is the policy of Cherry Coatings to provide a safe and healthful working environment for its most vital resource, its employees. The safety of employees is the greatest interest of all management and supervision levels, ranking in importance above production, quality, costs, and service.
Cherry Coatings basic philosophy is that all injuries can and must be prevented. While the responsibility of safety begins and ends with every employee, that responsibility is shared throughout the entire organization. Supervisors are accountable for their groups, and individuals are responsible for their own safety. There will be no place in the organization for an unsafe employee. All employees at every level are expected to fully accept responsibility for their own safety and for the safety of those with whom they work. All employees will be focused on managing the safety process with a high level of commitment and unbending philosophy of never compromising on safety – a passion for safety excellence.
The degree of commitment from Cherry Coatings management and field level employees establishes the importance of safety, and high commitment which guarantees support for individual components of the safety effort throughout our project sites.
Management has the authority to procure the necessary resources to execute the objectives of our company’s safety and health program. Managers, supervisors and employees shall be held accountable for meeting their responsibilities to ensure the effectiveness of the Health and Safety Program.
Our foreman and leads are trained in safety practices and OSHA regulation by continuous in-house training by our full-time safety staff. Field leadership are trained at the competent person levels and qualified in OSHA 30 topics.
The safety department provides continuous mentoring and coaching on safety leadership to our field leaders as well. This enables our supervisors to communicate with their employees and offer them coaching and mentoring right onsite.
All newly hired employees go through an onboarding process before going to the field. This in an orientation process sets our expectations and the importance of safety for all our staff. At Cherry Coatings “Safety isn’t a work step, but the way we step up our work”
