We exercise strict safety standards and practices at Fitzpatrick Mfg. Co.
A safe and clean work environment is paramount to our business. This concept is important in our success, and the success of the products we manufacture for our customers. Our emphasis on safety has allowed us to score very high marks during HSE audits by our customers.
We place a high priority on safety throughout our facility by conducting weekly safety audits and walk-throughs. We have also developed a safety commission made up of employees in all roles in our company; this concept is based on the layer auditing system used in many quality systems. We are continuously striving to enhance our safety programs with feedback and continuing education. All accidents as well as near misses are investigated, corrective actions are implemented, and the lessons learned are disseminated across our company to every employee to prevent reoccurrence of injuries and incidents. This system is based upon the lean concept of plan-do-check-act (PDCA).
