Health and Safety

SEML will not compromise on its commitment to the health, safety and security of our people, customers, suppliers, sites, products and communities. This commitment has always been deeply embedded in the way we work, the decisions we make and the actions we take.

Our goal is to attain world-class health & safety business practices and, more important, to be the safest company in our industry. That means zero tolerance for unsafe conditions, unsafe equipment, and unsafe actions, decisions and attitudes.

A key component to achieving zero tolerance for unsafe variables is Safety Training, which provides classroom instruction in safety fundamentals for supervisors, and ground training for workers, contractors and helpers. Training seeks to enhance understanding, change behaviors and develop company leaders who can make a difference and train and lead others. The program is about being hard on facts and easy on people.

Each of us has the responsibility to make the safety of oneself, co-workers, customers and members of the public a primary concern. This objective is fundamental to our well being, as well as to the efficient operation of our business. The key elements of a safe and healthful working environment are management commitment, a knowledgeable supervisory staff, involved safety leadership and conscientious employees. It is critical for each employee to be dedicated to the principle that all incidents and accidents are preventable and that safety is an integral part of the planning and efficient execution of each job.

Management recognizes its responsibility to provide safe and healthful working conditions, safe work procedures and rules based upon experience and safety knowledge and competent work direction for our employees.

Every employee has the responsibility to prevent accidents and injuries by observing established working rules, following the directions of supervisors, practicing the principles taught in safety training and providing ideas so our safety and health efforts will be further strengthened. SEML and its employees have the responsibility to comply with all laws and regulations related to safety and health programs. An effective safety and health program extends beyond normal working hours and, accordingly, safety for employees and their families off the job activities is also encouraged. At SEML, we do not consider any phase of our operations of greater importance than the safety of our employees, our customers and the general public.
