Commitment to Safety

Teichert has placed the highest value on safe production for generations. The company’s official safety program was started in 1959 by Henry Teichert – years before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established in 1970.

Because our employees are Teichert’s greatest asset, safe production is important to every job we perform. To achieve this, Teichert uses our Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP) to implement our vision:

Our safe production vision is to create a culture and environment where employees work injury free.

The proven best practices include:

  • Demonstrated management commitment
  • Staffing for safe production
  • Safe production planning (pre-job/pre-task/process improvements)
  • Safe production training and education
  • Worker participation and involvement
  • Recognition and awards
  • Subcontractor management
  • Injury/incident reporting and investigations
  • Drug and alcohol testing

Our continued progress in workplace safe production – including each person taking personal responsibility – contributes to our “injury free” culture. “Injury free” is not a goal or a target; it is our commitment to our employees.
