To demonstrate the Production’s commitment to ensuring a safe and healthy workplace, a system is required for ensuring that safe work practices are followed. The purpose of a disciplinary program is to help promote and ensure safety on the job, not to punish employees.
To ensure the health and safety of all employees, disregard of safe work practices will not be tolerated. Employees engaged in unsafe work practices will be subject to disciplinary measures, including, but not limited to suspension or dismissal.
Any employee found in violation of a safety rule or guideline may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. The following is the suggested guideline for discipline:
- Verbal Warning (Use Employee Notice of Violation – Form 6)
- Written Warning (Use Employee Notice of Violation – Form 6)
- Written Warning plus two day suspension
- Written Warning plus one year suspension
It should be noted that the steps listed above are recommended guidelines and may vary depending on the severity of the infraction. Some violations, such as fall protection infractions, may be serious enough to warrant immediate termination or suspension on the first offense. Since every type of violation cannot be anticipated, production management reserves the right to treat each incident on a case-by-case basis. Please make every effort to ensure a safe work environment for everyone.
