VP HSE Safety Message
Our first priority is to the safety of our employees. We firmly believe that we can protect our employees through a culture of safety. A true safety culture is one that is not only spoken of but also organically grown and hard written into the DNA of the company. It is cultured through strong leadership, which is reinforced by safety professionals that teach the how and why so that everyone understands how we can further enrich our company. These professionals believe that a strong foundation of training, teaching and reinforcement can bring us to a place where we can be productive through safety.
Many companies will speak of a safety culture, however the reality is that they police safety through an unrelenting gauntlet of forms and policies. Equix believes that Safety, Quality, and Production all have equal weight in creating a healthy company that will continue to learn from its past to make a better future.
It is Equix’s philosophy that safety performance is a key indicator of organizational excellence. Accident prevention is good business, which is attained by means of firm, fair and consistent approach to safety. We continually strive to prevent all accidents, injuries, and occupational illnesses through the active participation of each and every employee.
It is the Charter of the HSE team to provide a safe and healthy workplace for all of our employees.
-Jon Gruber – VP Health, Safety, & Environment, Equix
