An accident, or an unplanned event that results in injury and/or damage, is invariably preceded by an unsafe act and/or condition. It is the responsibility of each employee to comply with all Logan Diving & Salvage Safety and Health Standards and all rules which are applicable to their own actions and conduct. Our manual has been prepared for the guidance and safety of all employees. Strict observance is necessary to prevent accidents.
No phase of operations is of greater importance than accident prevention. The degree of safety and the results accomplished are directly proportional to the effort expended to control the conditions, practices and human actions that are responsible for accidents. The Logan Diving & Salvage safety program has four principal objectives:
Due to the risks and unknown hazards involved in Logan Diving & Salvage’s (Logan Diving & Salvage) work it is not always possible to foresee every safety hazard. Therefore every Logan Diving & Salvage employee, from management to the part time employee, must constantly be aware and recognize potential safety hazards. As potential safety hazards arise employees shall take appropriate action to eliminate or minimize these possible hazards.
In case of emergency involving hazard to life, the employee in charge may modify or suspend such portion of the safety manual as may be considered temporarily necessary to permit proper handling of the specific emergency.
Logan Diving & Salvage and its employees are dedicated to providing the safest and healthiest working conditions possible. Logan Diving & Salvage shall not compromise the safety of its employees or others because of the urgency or emergency of a job. Logan Diving & Salvage primary goal is to have zero injuries, accidents, and losses every year. Implementation of this policy will require:
