At Hooper Corporation, safety is our most important core value. Holding safety as its number one core value ensures employees return home safe, each and every day. We are committed to the health and safety of our employees, contractors, and community, with a zero accident/injury philosophy. We require individual accountability and expect all employees to adhere to our safety standards, as well as actively participate in and support the advancement of our health and safety practices.
We hold safety as the responsibility of all employees, starting with upper management down to the individual craft worker. Without support from upper management, no safety program can succeed. Our proactive attitude and management involvement provides the leadership and guidance for the company and the safety program.
Hooper is committed to an environment of continuous change and improvement. Through employee committees that meet to discuss safety promotion, effectiveness and direction, and provide input directly to upper management, we have the all-important buy-in to the safety philosophy of the company.
Our Safety Department staff has a wide range of educational backgrounds, which lends itself to creative diversity, grounded by trade specific knowledge. Regulatory and company compliance, training, and incident prevention are the main focus of our Safety Department.
Placing safety at the core of our culture separates us from our competitors.
Our safety based culture makes an impact on every project we touch. Making safety a priority on every project and in every aspect of our lives means fewer injuries, accidents, and lost time. It also means an increase in productivity. And ultimately, it leads to a better work environment and finished product that we provide our customers.
