At APAC Central, our first guiding principle is to “Make Safety our Family Business”. We are a family of families. It is our goal and moral obligation to make sure our family goes home to their families at the end of each work day. Our commitment goes beyond regulatory compliance. It cannot simply be words on paper or activities driven by regulations. We are committed to engaging every employee in our safety culture. Employee engagement and involvement helps drive our safety core values and is at the leading edge of our guiding principles. We are also dedicated to the safety, health and well-being of our customers and all those who come in contact with our work. These beliefs are a primary cornerstone of the overall business strategy and expectations throughout our operations.
Here at APAC, we have one of the best safety records in the industry, which our employees achieve through a deep sense of responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others. Support and leadership from our management team, along with comprehensive training and a companywide commitment to eliminate injuries and accidents, have made safety and health a shared value throughout our entire organization. Our diligence has been recognized with an array of regional and national safety achievement awards.
We continue to implement and improve upon safety initiatives at our operations as we strive to completely eliminate all injuries and accidents. The primary drivers of this process are (1) employee engagement and ownership of the safety process and (2) management direction, commitment and leadership. We believe this model will enhance safety performance not only at individual workplaces but also across the entire organization.
