The health and safety of employees and others on UAS property are of critical concern to UAS. We strive to attain the highest possible level of safety in all activities and operations. UAS also intends to comply with all health and safety laws applicable to our business.
UAS maintains an Illness and Injury Prevention Program, an Emergency Action Plan, a Fire Prevention Plan, and Hazard Communication Standards (if required) which may be reviewed upon request. In addition, UAS must rely upon employees to help ensure that work areas are kept safe and free of hazardous conditions. Employees should be conscientious about workplace safety including proper operating methods and known dangerous conditions or hazards. Employees should report any unsafe conditions or potential hazards to a supervisor immediately.
In compliance with Proposition 65, UAS will inform employees of any known exposure to a chemical known to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.
UAS will take all steps feasible to reduce exposure to ergonomic hazards and Repetitive Motion Injuries by means of engineering controls, administrative controls and employee training.
Periodically, UAS may issue rules and guidelines governing workplace safety and health or regarding the handling and disposal of hazardous substances and waste. All employees should familiarize themselves with these rules and guidelines as strict compliance will be expected. Contact UAS for copies of current rules and guidelines if you do not have them. Failure to strictly comply with rules and guidelines regarding health and safety or negligent work performance which endangers health and safety will not be tolerated.
Any workplace injury, accident or illness must be reported to your supervisor as soon as possible, regardless of its severity. If medical attention is required immediately, supervisors will assist employees in medical care, after which the details of the injury or accident must be reported.
