The construction industry in which we operate poses significant health and safety challenges, but we do not accept that people will inevitably be injured. The Keller companies are dedicated to fostering a healthy and safe work environment. We expect every person who works for us, or with us, to go home healthy and safely at the end of each day.
The ultimate goal of our global Keller Think Safe program is zero incidents. Management and employee commitment to this framework has produced awards and recognition from industry professional societies, as well as our clients.
Our Safety Goal
Our ultimate goal is to have zero incidents through the effective management of safety in all our operations.
Our Safety Principles
Underpinning this goal are three fundamental Safety Principles:
All incidents are preventable
We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses are preventable. We are all responsible for preventing and correcting unsafe behavior or work conditions.
No repeat occurrences
Reportable accidents and high potential near misses are investigated to determine the details and causes. The findings and necessary steps to prevent recurrence are disseminated and implemented.
Maintain Safety Standards
We have adopted a common set of safety standards throughout Keller Foundations. Management at all levels is responsible for implementing and maintaining the safety standards.
STOP WORK AUTHORITY – STOP any work that is UNSAFE
For these principles to be most effective, it is everyone’s responsibility to look out for fellow workers and speak up when observing unsafe activity. Everyone has the authority to stop work until it is safe without the risk of repercussions.
These Safety Principles define our safety culture, behaviors and performance standards and, in so doing, assist us in our progress towards eliminating injuries in our workplace.
Our Safety Policy
Our managers and supervisors are accountable for the safety of our people and are expected to provide effective leadership in safety. Management of every business or operation is responsible for following the Safety Principles and implementing and maintaining the Safety Standards. We set appropriate objectives against which to monitor progress toward zero incidents. All employees are responsible for good safety behavior and it is only by working together and recognizing that we all have a part to play in safety that we will really make a difference.
Thank you for bringing your safety leadership to Crosslinx and for being safety leaders, not just for Keller’s employees, but for everyone that sets foot on our site.
