Safety & Health Program Maximizes Safe Performance
KGS/Trinity developed and implemented a comprehensive Corporate Safety and Health (S&H) program that contains integrated procedures for managing safety in the workplace. Our team of safety professionals develop, administer, and continually update our program. We provide guidance and training to employees throughout all levels of the organization. Our commitment to safety and employee health is a key element of our Mission, Vision, and Values statement. We believe that all safety incidents are avoidable and we encourage all employees to identify, mitigate, and report any safety concerns in the office or the field before they become safety issues.
Never Compromise on Safety
The emphasis of our S&H Program is continuous improvement. This, along with the implementation of innovative practices, allows us to accomplish the objective of strengthening each aspect of our S&H Program to achieve our ongoing goal of zero accidents, injuries, or illnesses. We maintain the belief and establish the culture that the safety and quality of life of our employees is our first priority and must never be compromised during the course of conducting our business. We maintain strict adherence to safety training, safety awareness, and safety protocols, including safety as one of our job performance evaluations for each employee.
Our safety culture is built on a foundation of relationship-based training, shared knowledge, and engagement at every level of our organization. Key to our success has been our commitment to employee involvement. We provide opportunity for employees at all levels of the organization to be involved in the safety and health process, including identifying and mitigating hazards, and having input on decisions related to safety policy and procedure. One example is our Safety Advocates Team that identifies, develops, and implements best practices for employee safety engagement. The team consists of representatives from each office and across multiple business units and reports directly to the General Manager. Example employee engagement initiatives include implementation of KOMAN Cares Moments at the beginning of group meetings, a Good Catch Program that rewards employees for identifying and correcting potential safety issues, and an incident reporting policy. Other team accomplishments include development of field safety checklists, updated office-specific emergency action plans, and field vehicle inspection checklists.
As part of our safety recognition program, we proudly present challenge coins in recognition of superior safe behavior or for sharing an innovative way of promoting a safer environment. The coins provide a tangible reminder of the power of individual engagement in our safety program. All employees and subcontractors are eligible to participate.
