To reinforce the importance of our safety culture, we have established the ABM Safety Absolutes. These basic safety principles provide clarity about our standards and expectations that certain tasks must not be done by any employee who has not received proper instruction or training. Managers must train employees to stop and refuse unsafe work until a safe work environment can be assured. All employees are expected to work in accordance with these standards.
All authorized work must comply with our safety policies, procedures and training requirements. Under no circumstances is work permitted by employees who have not received adequate training and/or authorization on the following:
- Live electrical circuits work or equipment, including maintenance or repair
- Lockout/Tagout work
- Confined Spaces work
- Power Industrial Trucks operations
- Mobile elevated work platform operations
- Working from heights above four feet
