The welfare of our employees is our leading core value. This value encompasses not only the physical safety and health of every employee, but also the success and profitability of the company as a whole. Safety and production are of equal importance and are considered inseparable.
Our ultimate goal is, and always will be, to achieve and maintain a perfect safety record – no injuries or illnesses, no catastrophic failure of company owned property or equipment, and no chemical release that would have a permanent, negative effect on the natural environment.
No level or number of incidents is acceptable. We will always strive to eliminate hazards so that incidents do not happen, manage incidents so that those involved get the care they deserve and share information both within the company and in the industry so that similar incidents can be avoided in the future. We believe that all incidents are preventable.
An equal responsibility for incident avoidance rests with the individual, and it is a condition of employment for all employees to conduct their work in a manner consistent with our values and in compliance with all Thorpe policies.
At Thorpe Specialty Services, we are committed to providing a safe work environment and a financially stable company for our employees. We will work to integrate key elements of our safety, health and environmental policies into every aspect of our business in order to motivate employees to complete work tasks without incident, and to achieve recognition as a leader in our industry.
Thorpe Specialty Services has established the following set of values and beliefs as it relates to our business. It is important to us that each employee understands the significance of this statement, realizing that no job is so important or urgent that we cannot take the time to do it safely and without incident.
