TVIG policy is to place the health, safety, and protection of the environment of personnel and property above other concerns, and to establish a "ZERO Incident / Injury Culture" for all aspects of TVIG's business. TVIG seeks to enlist the help and involvement of the Owner, the property owners, and all employees, subcontractors, and suppliers to ensure that work is planned and performed safely; that work areas are free from recognized hazards; and that, as a minimum, work is carried out in compliance with applicable safety laws and additional contractual requirements.
The objective of the TVIG Environmental / Safety Management Program, and specifically the Policies, Programs, and Requirements contained within the Safety Environmental / Management Program, is to provide working conditions that are free of recognized safety hazards through comprehensive planning, education, and training of employees and subcontractors with a specific emphasis on:
A cornerstone to the design of TVIG's Environmental / Safety Management Program is the belief that "Safety is everyone's responsibility" and requires all employees, line management, and safety staff working together to create and sustain a safe work environment. In accordance with the above stated belief, TVIG's Safety Management Program places ultimate accountability for implementation of environmental / safety policies, programs and requirements on Line Managers assigned to direct and/or manage daily construction activities. TVIG recognizes that in order to create a "Zero Incident / Injury Culture" you must have alignment on not just the objective, but also on the means and methods that will be utilized to achieve the objective. As such onsite Subcontractors will be required to align their safety policies, programs and requirements to achieve the objectives of TVIG's Environmental / Safety Management Program. This requirement includes but is not limited to assignment of project safety staff, safety training, audits, inspections, observations, safety committees, safety reporting and documentation, and emergency planning and response.
