Health and Safety

“There is nothing more important than the health and safety of our people. Safety is our top priority. Everything else comes second.”

– Mike Keown, Chief Executive Officer

At Commonwealth Rolled Products, we care deeply about the safety of our employees. Our most critical priority is ensuring every employee leaves work each day and returns to his or her loved ones without injury. Through careful consideration, action and planning, we can prevent all injuries.

To drive safety excellence, Commonwealth has a comprehensive Health and Safety system that facilitates a strong focus on safe work processes and proactive efforts to remove unsafe work conditions and practices. This system has led to improvement in our injury rates. We also encourage every dedicated team member to help us continually improve safety by identifying unsafe situations or bringing proactive ideas for improving processes.

As we continue to drive toward our goal of zero injuries, we are working diligently to build upon our strong safety culture that aligns the focus of our operations with a commitment to working safely. Through our team’s continued dedication, we’ve seen greater acceptance of our safety standards, more focus on safe work processes and more hands-on efforts to remove unsafe work conditions and practices.
