Safety

VLS is known for its commitment to health, safety, and the environment.

Our Commitment to Safety

At VLS Recovery Services, our commitment to Health, Safety and the Environment is at the heart of everything we do – it is our topmost priority and remains at the forefront of our mandate for excellence. Our policy statement forms an integral part of our operations, and outlines VLS’s objectives to provide and maintain a workplace that is safe and without risk to the health of all employees as well as to responsibly manage the impact that we have on the environment.

Employee safety and health are to be the first consideration in the operation of our business. Safe practices on the part of our employees must be a part of all operations and employees must understand their personal responsibility for the prevention of accidents and injuries on and off the job. Accident prevention and effective production go hand-in-hand. Strict adherence to VLS Recovery Services safety and health policies and procedures are not only a requirement, it is a condition of employment.

Our Philosophy

In fulfilling this commitment, we aim to abide by the following principles in recognition of our responsibilities toward the health and safety of all persons at our facilities:

  • The safety of everyone in our facilities is the responsibility of all employees.
  • Eliminate foreseeable hazards that may result in personal injuries, work-related illness, preventable accidents and damages to property.
  • Establish procedures and operating philosophies to ensure that employees perform their jobs properly and safely.
  • Provide and maintain a healthy and safe work environment as indicated by acceptable organization practices and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
  • Continuous improvement of our Environmental, Health, and Safety management system.

VLS Recovery Services is dedicated to achieving the full integration of our environmental, health, and safety objectives into our culture. We regularly review our policies and procedures to ensure that they remain relevant and aligned to VLS Recovery Services’ operating philosophy.
