Program: Work Safety—It’s in Everything We Do
Terracon Consultants, Inc. has always been focused on safety and recently implemented the Incident and Injury-Free (IFF) program. This program has been such a success that Terracon felt this initiative is way too important to keep to themselves.
We all have a personal and uncompromising commitment to everyone going home safely each and every day. IIF is not something we do; it is in everything we do. IFF is about care and concern for people. It is our personal and organizational commitment at all levels of the company to everyone going home safe to their family every day. It is where safety is held as a core value as well as an operational priority. Working safely is an inseparable part of working correctly, just as much as other operational priorities, in particular quality, profitability and schedule. Incident and Injury-Free is our commitment to our people, who we value for who they are and what they do. IIF is not just something we do, it's in everything we do.
If your company is struggling with a work-safety policy this program may have come in the nick-of-time!
We are still looking for a lunch sponsor for this month. If your company is interested, please contact Kristi Pempin at email@example.com.
