Safety

Swift & Staley has received the Governor’s Safety and Health Award from the Kentucky Department of Labor for the past six of seven years. This award recognizes companies who have demonstrated outstanding safety and health performance in the prevention of significant occupational injuries and illnesses.

In August 2018, Swift & Staley reached one million hours worked without an injury resulting in a lost workday. This represents roughly three years of work without a significant injury and is directly attributable to Swift & Staley’s safety culture and daily efforts to identify and control unsafe work conditions.

Integrated Management System (IMS) Policy

Swift & Staley Inc. is committed to employing ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 in the company’s culture and daily practices as a long-term commitment to quality, pollution prevention, reducing environmental impact, compliance with applicable legal requirements, customer satisfaction, and continual improvement.

SSI adopts safety as a core principle for success in all endeavors for our employees, our customers, and visitors. SSI believes that trust is the foundation for a strong safety culture that can only be achieved with an environment of open communication and interaction between and among all levels of the organization. Safety is not a goal or an achievement, but an ongoing journey that requires the participation and commitment of everyone involved. All SSI personnel are committed to the safety, health, and well-being of our employees and demonstrate this commitment through resource allocation, training, active participation, and transparency in implementing processes, and commitment to continual improvement of the safety culture. SSI complies with applicable safety and health requirements and regulations and evaluates and eliminates (where possible) or mitigates identified hazards. SSI has adopted ISO 45001:2018 as the base for building and maintaining our safety culture.

The Board of Directors is responsible for promoting and supporting this IMS Policy to ensure that SSI works within the environment, safety, health, and quality (ESH&Q) systems defined by the adopted ISO standards. The President is responsible for establishing and maintaining the Corporate ESH&Q. The Vice President, with assistance from the Director of ESH&Q, is responsible for ensuring this IMS Policy is communicated and enforced in each project.
