Our Commitment to Safety
Ernest D. Menold, Inc. takes an aggressive approach to working safely while serving our customers. The safety and health of all Ernest D. Menold, Inc. employees is of primary importance, and the prevention of work-related injuries takes precedence over operating productivity. This commitment to safety starts with management and requires vigilant performance each and every day by our employees.
We consider safety to be a company value, not a priority.
Through written procedures and procedural training monitored by our full time Safety Coordinator, our employees make efforts to reduce or eliminate exposure to hazards in the workplace for their safety and the safety of our customers.
Our Safety Standards include:
Compliance with all applicable safety laws, rules and regulations
Regular and frequent safety meetings to provide education and training on safety and health matter
Regular safety inspections to identify unsafe and working conditions and practices
Prompt and thorough investigation of safety incidents to determine cause and take corrective action to ensure it will not happen again
Monthly review of all safety incidents and issues by our Workplace Cooperation Team, a Pennsylvania State Certified Safety Committee.
Above the Industry Norm
Our OSHA Recordable Frequency rate has been less than the national average for over 10 years. In 2018, we worked over 150,000 hours with Zero Injuries.
Safety awareness is a cooperative effort by everyone in our company to accomplish a “zero injury”
environment. Safety goals can and have been attained through the dedication of our employees.
