Our mission is to continue working towards
providing a safe and injury free workplace.
At South Coast Lumber Co. & Affiliates, we understand the responsibility we have as a company to maintain a safe working environment for our employees. Our goal is to send individuals home to their families the same way they came to work; healthy, happy, and safe. The use of PPE (personal protective equipment) differs depending on the task, however hearing protection and safety glasses are a standard throughout our facilities. Proper training and equipment are provided for each situation by the company at no extra cost to employees.
Our safety committees consist of employee and employer representatives that meet monthly to inform management of safety related needs, recommendations, and assist the proper administration of our Safety Program. Employees are welcome and encouraged to attend any Safety Committee meeting. If interested in joining, simply notify your supervisor or your committee representative.
We have a safety bonus program that awards our employees for prioritizing safety. Our program is designed to increase awareness, encourage communication, and identify hazards associated to potential work injuries. Each department shift that works without a lost time accident will be rewarded for their diligent efforts on an annual basis. A lost time accident is defined as a job-related injury that causes an individual to stay overnight in a hospital or miss more than three full shifts of work.
