Worker health and safety is a top priority. It is managed and controlled in accord with our corporate Health, Safety, and Accident Prevention Plan. The plan requires enrolment in aÂ medical monitoring program and accomplishment of the minimumÂ levels of class room and on-the-job-training for all personnel who maybe exposed to hazardous and toxic substances during job performance.
As with our Quality System, the corporate Health, Safety and Accident Prevention Plan is simple, yet effective. The corporate plan requires a project specific Health,Safety and Accident Prevention Plan for all projects requiring fieldwork ,with the size and complexity tailored to the nature of the potential hazards. Emphasizing up-front planning and the selection of properly trained and experienced personnel are the keys to Abbottâ€™s excellent health and safety record.
