  1. We talk about safety. Each operations department engages in a shift start-up meeting and safety is a daily topic. In addition, we begin each year with an all-employee safety kick-off. This is a company-wide event that focuses on safety initiatives for the coming year.

  1. We report safety concerns. At Fairbanks Morse, we have a system in place for reporting unsafe situations or malfunctioning equipment. We view these as opportunities to improve our processes and our working conditions.

  1. Our facility has safety sidewalks. With many moving parts at our facility, to ensure the safety of people walking from building to building, we have designated sidewalks for pedestrians to use and danger areas to avoid.

  1. We set and adhere to safety regulations. In the manufacturing buildings within our facilities, there are specific rules that must be followed upon entry. An example of these regulations is the requirement of PPE (protective personal equipment) while in the machining buildings.
  1. We make it a team effort. 6.1A_ABOUT_750x960Safety is a responsibility of each FM employee and Fairbanks Morse has a team-based safety culture. We have nine safety teams within our organization covering different topics, such as hazard control and incident investigation.
