Safety

As a member of Murphy & Miller, Inc., all employees automatically accept a moral obligation to their fellow employees and an economic obligation to Murphy & Miller, Inc. to see that operations under their care, custody and control are carried out in an efficient and safe manner.

Along with other responsibilities, safety consciousness must always exist in thinking and planning. Because of this obligation, all employees must not only prevent obvious unsafe acts on the part of themselves and those they work with, but they must anticipate potential hazards. After an accident occurs, it is too late to prevent it. All employees must recognize that working in an unsafe manner is counter-productive. Most important, each employee is encouraged to demonstrate leadership ability by setting a good example.
