SAFETY AT ALLIANT SYSTEMS
adjust when necessary.
Top-Down Safety Culture
A commitment to safety starts at the top. A major indicator of a positive safety culture is the quality and effectiveness of its communication. When communication throughout all levels of an organization is strong, open, and meaningful, a positive safety culture follows.
The leadership team at Alliant practices and teaches the following:
Nothing takes precedent over safety.
All team members share the same responsibility for safety.
Communication must occur openly between craft workers and management.
Stopping work for safety concern is never met with negativity.
Creating a Safety-Focused Culture
A Toolbox Talk is an informal group discussion that focuses on a particular safety issue. These discussions are held weekly to promote safety culture as well as to facilitate health and safety discussions on our jobsites. Typically, each Toolbox Talk focuses on current or upcoming scopes of work happening on each particular site, covering topics like ladder safety, forklift safety, and winter or heat wave protocols.
Alliant Systems is certified in the OSHA Sharp Program
The program recognizes small business employers who have used OSHA's On-Site Consultation Program services and operate exemplary safety and health programs. Acceptance of your worksite into SHARP from OSHA is an achievement of status that singles you out among your business peers as a model for worksite safety and health.
Alliant was the first union mechanical contractor in Oregon to achieve this status.
