UNION ELECTRIC SAFETY PROGRAM

Union Electric Contracting Company is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for our employees and subcontractors, and to safeguarding our clients personnel from potential hazards during our work operations. It is our intent to provide work areas and jobsites that are free from recognized hazards that might cause illness, injury or death, and to comply with the specific safety and health standards issued by Federal, State and local authorities. These standards include, but are not necessarily limited to, the safety and health regulations for construction and related general industry regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (29CFR Parts 1926 and 1910).

The safety program has been developed as a part of our commitment. Safety is an attitude, an awareness and a continuing thought process. Consequently, we expect each and every employee to become familiar with and comply with the policies, procedures and regulations contained herein. Each employee of Union Electric is provided a copy of the Union Electric Contracting Company Safety Manual in order to become familiar with our high standards of safety.

The services we provide and the clients for whom we provide them expose us to a broad spectrum of potential hazards. Each of our clients has its own safety programs addressing its individual operations. These programs form an integral part of our overall safety effort. Awareness and compliance with these programs is mandatory to everyones well-being.

Safety is everyones responsibility. We need each individuals commitment to avail themselves of and utilize those means and methods.
