Safety

Every employee is expected to perform his or her duties in as safe a way as possible for his or her own protection, for the protection of fellow workers and the general public, and so as to reduce the amount of time lost through injuries or accidents. Unsafe conditions or practices observed by an employee should be reported to his or her supervisor.

An employee injured on the job should immediately report the injury to the supervisor who will arrange for medical treatment. The Workers Compensation Act provides for payments for injury or death occurring on the job.
