SAFETY & HEALTH PROGRAM FOR
CAMPEON ROOFING & WATERPROOFING, INC.
CAMPEON ROOFING & WATERPROOFING, INC. realizes that safety and health is a vital part of all of our operations and is an integral part of every employees’ daily duties. Your personal safety and health, as well as that of your co-workers, is of primary importance to us here at CAMPEON ROOFING & WATERPROOFING, INC. and will take precedence over production whenever necessary. For our program to be THE BEST IN THE INDUSTRY, you must view it as YOUR program.
Our objectives here at CAMPEON ROOFING & WATERPROOFING, INC. will be to eliminate or minimize exposures to conditions which may result in an injury and/or illness to you and foster a cooperative effort to have the program grow. Your input to the program will be vital to our combined efforts.
A good program must eliminate all ACCIDENTS. Keep in mind that "accidents" are defined as unplanned occurrences. This means that, even if an injury/illness does not occur, we need to know about it so that corrective action may take place. This will prevent another "accident" which could result in an injury or illness.
Our program will, at a minimum, include:
> Providing mechanical and physical safeguards.
> Conducting pre-job audits to identify/eliminate conditions and practices which could
cause injury or loss and comply with all federal, state, and local codes.
> Conducting follow-up audits.
> Providing training relative to your exposure(s).
> Developing, with your input, our own rules and policies.
> Providing personal as well as other protective equipment.
> Enforcing all safety policies as a condition of employment.
> Immediately investigating ALL ACCIDENTS.
> Providing work incentives for an EXCELLENT program.
> Expecting your input for better/safer ways to do the task.
> Planning our work to recognize/eliminate potential exposures.
> Providing for continuing updates.
We, here at CAMPEON ROOFING & WATERPROOFING, INC., recognize that safety and health is EVERYBODY'S business. Your safety and health is our future. You and your co-workers are our resources.

ON SITE PROCEDURES
GENERAL AND SPECIFIC PROGRAM
a. The program, which includes REQUIRED activities, processes, and policies,
will be strictly adhered to as it is basic and essential. While local conditions
may require certain variations, the principles remain the same and are the
foundation of your program.
b. All contractors are to agree to and follow the program.
a. Audits of the project operations and conditions existing will be on-going.
Any sources of accidents, injury, or illness will be identified, corrected, and
reported as they occur.
b. Orderly and clean housekeeping conditions are to be maintained at all times.
c. Audits for compliance with federal, state, and local codes will be on-going
in order to minimize loss on site.
d. Weekly/daily reports on findings will be prepared and corrective actions taken.
TRAILER/OFFICE AREA SETUP
a. The site trailer/office is the hub of all activity. Whether it be OSHA, state, or other officials, or visitors, they first go there. Although OSHA normally inspects larger worksites, ONE complaint may bring them to YOUR door. The information and materials to be there are, at a minimum:
1. First aid supplies
2. Potable water with individual disposable cups
3. Steps to area with standard handrails
4. Emergency fire and medical information
5. Bulletin board with safety information ( crane signals, rigging, hazardous
chemical classifications, etc. )
6. Bulletin board for all job notices ( OSHA poster, Fair Labor standards, Ohio
Utilities Protection, etc. )
7. Fire extinguisher of correct type for hazards
8. Records of maintenance, accidents, injuries/illnesses
9. Records of safety audits/meetings
10. Name and location of nearest emergency squad
11. Hazard warning signs prominently posted ( HARD HAT AREA, NO
TRESPASSING, NO SMOKING, HIGH VOLTAGE, ETC. )
12. Hazard Communication program and material safety data sheets ( MSDS )
13. Copy of codes: OSHA, State, etc.
14. Documentation on smaller employers being checked out for safety programs
If you are inspected by OSHA or the State of Ohio, call the main office and notify them. Be cordial, courteous, polite, and take notes of the tour. If, by policy, you are to request that they wait for the safety director, do so and continue with the opening conference.
a. OSHA enforcement policies now address multi-employer sites. OSHA will look closely at the CONTROLLING employer in order to eliminate workplace hazards. Citations will be issued to:
> The employer who actually creates the hazard
> The employer responsible ( by contract or practice )
> The employer responsible to correct it
It is very important that you work closely with other contractors in order to remove the hazards on site, whether or not you have exposed employees. If we are aware of hazards, we must take steps to eliminate them. Although one party may have created the hazard and/or failed to correct it, OSHA will cite all other parties working around or near the hazard.
a. Each contractor on the project should be contractually obligated to comply with our program and with federal, state, and local codes. They may have their own program, but it must, at a minimum, be at least as effective as this program.
b. Each contractor shall designate a "contact" person or competent supervisor to coordinate and implement the program.
c. Records of audits, accidents, injuries, and illnesses shall be available for review and ALL serious injuries or fatalities shall be reported IMMEDIATELY.
d. Each contractor is to participate in audits of the job as it relates to their work area and cooperate fully during any investigations which take place. They are to make personnel available for interviews and records for review.
ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS AND REPORTING
All accidents are to be investigated and reported to us. By definition, accidents are UNPLANNED OCCURRENCES which could result in personal injury or property loss. Ten major human factors involved are:
> HASTY DECISION
> NOT CARING
> INADEQUATE TRAINING
> WORK HABIT
> OVER CONFIDENCE
> NO PRE-PLANNING
If an accident occurs, the following steps should be taken.
a. Determine the severity of the accident and investigate it .
b. If necessary, account for all personnel.
c. Immediately determine if there is injury/illness and call the emergency
squad. If in doubt, CALL.
d. Report the accident to the main office.
e. Secure the area and take photos since things can change.
f. Hold equipment/property for inspection.
g. Obtain names of all involved parties and witnesses.
h. Do not speculate/discuss accident with persons not involved.
i. Complete an accident investigation form and submit it to the main office.
j. If applicable, immediately implement corrective action to assure that there
is no reoccurrence.
REPORTING PROCEDURES AND FORMS
Documentation is a critical part of our organization. Reports must be completed and files kept as outlined in this program. Forms have been included in this book for your use in audits, meetings, investigations, agreement, etc. They are:
a. Daily/weekly inspection check list
b. Acknowledgment/ agreement form for other contractors
