Corporate Safety Policy
The principle of safety and loss control is based on a determination by management to prevent injuries to persons, promote conservation of property, and control the effect of both the earning potential of the individual and the company. It also involves instilling in the individual a personal concern for the protection of life and property. Marr management considers no phase of operations or administration of greater importance that accident prevention and asserts that accidents which result in personal injury and damage to property and equipment represent needless waste and loss; therefore, it shall be the policy of the company to conduct all operations safely thereby preventing injuries to persons and damage to property.
Key Safety Program Features
Marr’s ultimate goal is to achieve an accident‐free, loss‐free environment. For this reason, the company has implemented a multi‐faceted Safety Program that includes:
- Safety Coordinators in each of the Marr disciplines
- Established Safety Centers for each business entity
- Outreach Training and Specialty Product Trainings
- Target Zero Safety Campaign
- Scheduled, documented Job Site Inspections
- Accident Investigations, Safety Reports, Violation Notices
- Full compliance with local, state and federal regulations and project-specific requirements
Company Safety Plans
Marr Safety Plans are comprehensive documents issued as policy to make employees aware that the Marr Companies are resolute in their objective to encourage an efficient and productive effort that incorporates all elements of loss prevention. As a rule, all operating executives and managers are charged with the responsibility for the general and specific implementation of corporate policies and objectives as they relate to safety and loss prevention. Active attendance and participation at safety meetings, safety training sessions, and enforcement of all internal and external rules, regulations, standards or other directives regarding safety are required.
Direct line supervisory personnel are immediately responsible for job site safety, and implement the Marr Loss Prevention Program at the project level. Marr’s Safety Team Leaders monitor and assist supervisory personnel in fulfilling their safety responsibilities and act to ensure that safety policies and programs are being followed.
The Marr Safety Program is an original, active document that is continually amended and updated to reflect the most current accepted safety practices. The Marr Safety Program is driven by top‐level management and has priority status. The Program is a strong, pro‐active plan that reflects the company’s commitment to the health and welfare of employees, colleagues and the public at large. Significant features of the Marr Safety Program include:
- Tool Box Meetings
- Supervisors and General Foreman Safety Workshops
- Corporate Safety Committee Meetings
- Special Safety Training Meetings
- Measurement of Safety and Loss Control Program
- Safety Program Manual
- Ongoing Modifications to Accommodate Evolving Safety Plans
