Circa Refrigeration, Inc. and its management are committed to the prevention of occupational illness and injury to employees, visitors and others while at Circa or on company business.
This commitment shall be fulfilled by providing and maintaining a healthy and safe work environment that will, as a minimum, meet all health and safety-related legislative and regulatory requirements and address all related employee safety concerns. This commitment will be achieved by using the following tools:
• Employee training and education
• Proactive approaches to prevent problems

Each employee has the responsibility to obey the company policies and procedures, follow safe work practices, and identify and report all unsafe acts and hazardous conditions to their employer.
All supervisors have the responsibility to ensure that safe and healthful working conditions are present and being maintained; and that each employee receives the instructions, training, protective equipment and proper tools to perform their job safely and efficiently.
