Safety Sets the Pace
The Osmose Safety Culture
At Osmose, we prefer to talk about our safety culture rather than our safety program. A safety program implies a set of rules that people are required to follow, often reluctantly. A safety culture implies that safety is a way of life at Osmose, and it absolutely is. It’s how we think and how we approach our jobs every day, not because that’s what is required, but because that’s who we are.
Safety is a condition of employment at Osmose. Over the past 20 years, we’ve worked diligently to establish a culture of safety by making safety an integral part of everything we do. As you’ll see in many of the statistics below, we’ve achieved excellent results and we’ll keep doing everything in our power to ensure this culture and our safety performance persist.
- 21 of our crews have exceeded 100,000 safe hours. To put this achievement into perspective, that’s the equivalent of an individual working for 50 years without a recordable injury or chargeable vehicle claim (CVC).
- Though CVCs are not OSHA indices, they are important to us. Driving is risky and it’s our single largest exposure with a fleet logging more than 22 million miles each year. We typically experience a CVC only once every 500,000 miles – that’s like circumventing the globe 20 times without an accident.
