No phase of our operations or management is of higher importance than safety and accident prevention. Our commitment to safety is confirmed by celebrating our 30th year working at the ExxonMobil Baytown Complex!
The policy of LWL, INC. is to provide, and maintain, safe and healthful working conditions free of recognized hazards. Safety is a profitable priority because accidents result in pain and lost time from work as well as result in job delays, additional costs, waste, personnel problems, and poor public and customer relations.
A truly effective accident prevention program begins with management– and each manager and supervisor is required to be committed to LWL’s safety program and policies. Each Job Superintendent and Foreman is expected to have regular orientation of all newly-hired employees, as well as newly-transferred employees, to their job site. Each supervisor is required to have regular, frequent and effective “tool box” safety meetings with their employees. Each supervisor is expected to have on-the-job safety discipline and to set a good example for their employees to follow.
A large part of safety is attitude– and the attitude of LWL is that management, supervisory personnel and employees are pulling together in a cooperative effort to continuously maintain a good safety record.
LWL’s managers and supervisors are expected to keep constantly alert to the possibility of accidents and to do all in their power to minimize such possibilities by detecting and eliminating job hazards. Each employee is expected to be a safe worker, to keep tools and equipment in good condition and to use required personal protective devices (head and eye protection) in order that all operations are performed in the safest and most effective manner.
