First and foremost at Duke Electric is our total commitment to safety. We are dedicated to a completely safe and accident free workforce on each and every project. We utilize a proactive, full time, 100% dedicated safety manager backed by 100% management commitment to continually ensure the safety of our employees and the work environment.
Duke Electric is dedicated to providing a Safe Workplace for it's employees and it's Customers. We are further dedicated to the protection of our environment, our customers' sites and to the protection of the general public where they may come into contact with our business and activities.
The Duke Electric Safety Plan is a minimum standard by which our work plans and procedures must be directed. In cases where we are also subject to the Safety Plans of Customers, the most stringent standard will apply. In every case, it is the intent that all applicable laws and regulations will be followed to achieve a safe workplace.
Safety is the primary responsibility of every individual as well as the company. Each employee is responsible for his own actions and for recognizing and asserting the safety practices of others. Working on a different crew or assignment does not relieve this responsibility. Safety is everyone's business. The Drug and Alcohol Policy is an integral part of the Duke Electric Safety Policy and will be rigorously enforced.
Duke Electric provides safety training and guidance through it's Safety Manager and through it's project supervisors. Competent people are available to inspect, direct and train our employees in safe practices. We also provide safety equipment and training on the use of that equipment. Each individual is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of personal protective equipment and tools and equipment. Defective equipment will be replaced or repaired by the company when worn or damaged in the regular course of business.
