Oil Equipment Co. has established the following fundamental principles that:

  • Safety is a top priority.
  • All accidents are preventable.
  • Safety is everyone’s responsibility.
  • Attitude and awareness are the keys to accident prevention.
  • Safe working conditions are an integral part of accident prevention.
  • A successful safety program must have the active participation and total commitment of management.

The management of Oil Equipment Co. expects all employees to support this policy.

“The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 clearly state our common goal of safe and healthful working conditions. The safety and health of our employees continues to be the first consideration in the operation of this business.”

“Safety and health in our business must be a part of every operation. Without question, it is every employee’s responsibility at all levels.”

“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 that can produce injuries. No employee is required to work at a job he or she knows is not safe or healthful. Your cooperation in detecting hazards and, in turn, controlling them is a condition of your employment. The prevention of occupationally-induced injuries and illnesses is of such consequence that it shall be given precedence over operating productivity whenever necessary. To the greatest degree possible, management shall provide all mechanical and physical facilities required for personal safety and health in keeping with the highest standards.”

“We shall maintain a safety and health program conforming to the best practices or organizations of this type. To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all safety and health matters, not only between supervisor and employee, but also between each employee and his or her co-workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety program in the best interest of all be established and preserved.”

“Our objective is a safety and health program that shall reduce the number of injuries and illnesses to an absolute minimum, not merely in keeping with, but surpassing the best experience of operations similar to ours. Our goal is zero accidents and injuries.”
