To: All W. E. Lyons’ Personnel:

Safety and Health in our business must be part of every operation. Without question, it is the responsibility of ownership and every employee at all levels.

The personal safety and health of each employee of this company is of primary importance. Prevention of occupationally-induced injury or illness shall always be given precedence over operating productivity. Our objective is a safety and health program that will enable us to eliminate occupational related injuries and illnesses.

It is the intent of this company to comply with all laws. To do this, we must constantly be aware of conditions in all work areas having potential to produce injuries and all personnel must be properly trained to identify potentially hazardous conditions and methods to significantly reduce or eliminate such exposures. No employee is required to work at a job he/she knows is not safe or healthful. As a matter of fact, each employee has the right to immediately cease work at any time should they feel their safety or the safety of their co-workers is threatened or jeopardized in way. Management expects you to do so, and your cooperation in detecting hazards and, in turn, controlling them, is a condition of your employment. Inform your supervisor immediately of any situation beyond your ability or authority to correct. No reprisal or punitive action will ever be taken against an employee for providing such hazard notice to company management.
