Our safety goal at DSC is Target Zero. We believe that safety training is a vital part of ensuring that every employee is equipped with the knowledge and ability to work safely.
“Everyone knows dictating a safety culture is pointless. To be successful, you have to empower all of the people in the organization to participate in building that culture,” says Michael Dickerson, Assistant Safety Manager. “And this is what the DSC Safety Department revolves around; creating an inclusive environment where everyone participates in the solution.”
The development of a proactive safety culture must involve each and every employee, from top management to workers. At DSC this extends beyond the manufacturing aspect; it’s connected to both our engineering and quality teams who continually work closely with our customers ensuring our designs support their safety requirements. As a world class manufacturer, it is important that we understand how accidents occur and so we can strategically design to prevent those incidents.
Overall our design strategies are geared to reduce lost-time incidents, to limit the frequency of accidents, to ensure a more efficient operation and, most importantly, to lower risks for everyone.
At DSC, we believe having a safety culture is not just a priority but a core value. It takes commitment from each team member to perform their duties safely and watch out for their coworkers. It is not about individuals, but rather the people we work with and their families.
