POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

PREVENT SAFETY HAZARDS, REDUCE LIABILITY
Why You Need Policies and Procedures

Safety-related policies and procedures are critical elements that ensure all employees operate according to a consistent set of guidelines. They include language to cover legal issues, the health and welfare of employees and customers, and requirements as promulgated by DOT, NFPA, and OSHA.

Policies

Written policies include language to cover legal issues that may arise from the nature of business and employee health and welfare, especially in operational conditions or ethical scenarios that may put the organization or employee in a position of conflict.

Procedures

Document the who, what, when, and how of task performance. Each procedure defines who is responsible for task completion, what steps are required, and how the progression of steps is performed. The procedures manual forms the basic guiding document for consistent completion of core responsibilities and is absolutely crucial from a propane safety perspective.
