Why Safety Matters

05/01/2017

At Cleveland Water we know there’s “no business without safety,” because we know a safe and healthy work environment creates peace of mind and helps to make sure we all go home to our loved ones at the end of the day. But we also know that safety helps us control costs and keep reasonable rates for customers. Without it, critical funds must be diverted from daily operations to pay for damage and injuries. No matter who we are or what we do, safety matters.

The Cleveland Water Safety team works hard to create a safe work environment through ongoing training opportunities as well as safety awareness campaigns. In addition, we ensure adequate hazard control measures are being taken and promote safety in all work locations. We work with all of our employees from management to maintenance to develop and implement comprehensive safety programs with everyone in mind.

Cleveland Water employees are expected to always wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provided and take the necessary time to ensure they have the proper equipment to do the job safely. Employees are encouraged to ask for help if they have a safety concern or question; and both employees and members of the community are encouraged to look out for each other by reporting unsafe, or potentially unsafe, working conditions.

There’s never a good reason to gamble with your health and safety, and there’s certainly no Cleveland Water business without safe operations and healthy employees.
