SAFETY COMPLIANCE. A requirement of employment is compliance with
safety requirements. Workers must not perform work they consider unduly hazardous
based on their own capabilities; they are not trained or qualified to perform; or when
they are not properly protected from injury. In a case where the safety requirements are
not clear, the worker must obtain direction from the authorized individual-in-charge.
Carelessness. A worker must challenge a fellow worker who violates any of
these rules or works in an unsafe manner, and must promptly report any violations of
safety requirements to the authorized individual-in-charge.
Enforcement. Supervisors and foremen are responsible for enforcing safety
rules and are subject to penalties for violations as are crew members.
Interpretation. In any case where rules are not clear a worker should ask
the foreman or supervisor for an interpretation.
Violations. Each safety rule must be strictly enforced. Workers failing to
observe the rules can be subject to penalties. Supervisors must follow local guidelines
and ensure the severity of the penalty is related to the seriousness of the offense.
