The philosophy of integrating safety into all aspects of daily work is exemplified at Washington River Protection Solutions. Employees at every level of the organization are empowered and are expected to take personal responsibility for planning and executing work in a manner that reduces the risk of accidents. This philosophy requires innovation in work processes, conviction and dedication in how employees approach their work, and how they care for themselves and their fellow workers.
Employees are encouraged to participate in the safety process through safety communications, training, hazard evaluations, pre-job planning, work site inspections, walk downs, assessments, safety meetings, special task teams, policy/procedure development, developing safety goals and objectives, and accident and incident investigations. This level of ownership empowers workers to raise safety concerns without fear of reprisal and to offer continuous improvement suggestions to ensure a safe work environment.
