Policy & Procedure
Employees must report all accidents or incidents resulting in injury or illness, regardless of the severity, occurring during the course of employment with Track & Tie Printers.
In an effort to maintain a safe and healthy work environment, accidents and incidents that occur on company property or during the course of employment with the company must be reported. It is the intent of the company to minimize accidents, incidents and illness by correcting identified causes when appropriate and feasible.
The accident/incident reporting policy requirements apply to all accidents and incidents involving company employees, contractors and visitors, which result in (or might have resulted in) personal injury or illness.
“Accidents” are events that cause injury or illness to a person. Even “minor” injuries such as cuts or sprains are considered accidents. If in doubt, treat a situation as if it was an accident.
“Incidents” are near-miss events that have the potential of causing personal injury. Any event that causes damage to the company property is also an Incident.
“Occupational Accidents” are accidents that occur to a company employee while conducting work-related activities for the company.
