For each of the OLG/DCRT Policy and Procedure Memorandums (PPM's) listed below, there may be several associated documents that provide:
The Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism (CRT) fully realizes that without the benefit of patrons and employees, CRT would cease to exist. Therefore, a major goal of CRT is to provide a safe and productive environment for both our visitors and employees.
To establish this environment, we must have a TEAM effort to build on our strengths and work on our weaknesses. It may not be possible to eliminate all accidents, but it is our belief that most injuries can be prevented.
This objective can only be reached if all employees accept personal responsibility for their own safety and well being. Therefore, each employee is responsible for immediately reporting potentially unsafe conditions and work practices and taking temporary actions to minimize his or her risk until permanent safety measures can be made.
Complete COMMITMENT by management and a DEDICATED work force are essential for our safety program to succeed. Accordingly, each employee is responsible for helping us reach our loss prevention goal of preventing personal injury and loss of property because of accidents. Equally, each supervisor will be held accountable for the actions of his or her employees. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that his or her employees follow all safety rules, policies, and procedures.
Our GOAL is for everyone to provide suggestions and help establish the means for eliminating accidents and injuries. Our PLEDGE is to use whatever resources necessary to achieve this goal.
We all share in the DUTY to comply with federal, state, and local laws and regulations regarding safety issues, and establishing and maintaining safe and healthy conditions in our offices, facilities, and grounds. The success of our safety and loss prevention program depends upon the efforts of all employees to minimize and eliminate all potential risks. To this end, we hope all of you will join us in making CRT a LEADER in safety and loss prevention.
