Battaglia employs a full time Safety Director to ensure our commitment to safety.
It is the policy of Battaglia Electric to follow operating practices and procedures that will ensure the safety, health, and welfare of its employees, and to ensure that other persons affected by company operations are not exposed to safety, health, and environmental risks.
Safety is a leadership responsibility. Every individual who supervises, directs, or controls the work or actions of others is charged with conducting a safe and efficient operation at all times, and is responsible for the safety and health of each employee.
Each employee has the responsibility for their own safety and health and that of others working with and around them. In carrying out their assigned duties, each employee must strictly comply with all safety and health standards related to their work. They are authorized to stop their work, or the work of others, if unsafe conditions develop or are observed. Employees will immediately report any unsafe working conditions or practices to their foremen.
Battaglia will provide training, review our procedures, review accidents, and maintain the equipment. In the event of injury, our goal is to return the employee back to work when medically possible. Our Drug & Alcohol policy will be strictly enforced at all times.
All work will be conducted in a safe, efficient, and workmanlike manner in accordance with the safety standards of the trade, and all legal and regulatory requirements.
Our strong safety performance is indicated by our declining EMR as well as our TRIR that is well below the industry standard. As a result of our performance in 2014 & 2015, Battaglia Electric, Inc. received the Governor’s Safety Award presented by the Delaware Department of Labor and the Delaware Contractor’s Association.
