Safety Policy


The health and safety of our associates, as well as customers is fundamental to our mission. At ITS ConGlobal, we define success by the ability to keep our associates, customer associates, our subcontractors and members of the public safe. Everything we do can and must be done with a “Zero Harm” approach.

Our objective is to work in an environment where no one is harmed. Our Safety Policy will establish the culture and processes to achieve this goal. We will succeed with the following practices:

  • Management ownership of the Safety Process
  • Associate participation and compliance with the Safety Program
  • Eliminating unnecessary risk
  • Constant engagement with all associates and customers on working safely
  • Providing sufficient resources for the management of safety including setting and monitoring objectives for continual improvement
  • Ensuring associates are adequately prepared to complete all operational tasks safely

Our approach to managing safety is defined in the ITS ConGlobal Zero Harm
Commitment. The executive management team is responsible for establishing the overall Safety Policy for the company, ensuring it is followed; and for reviewing the performance of each business unit. All locations are responsible for executing the safety objectives and ensuring all operational processes/procedures are followed.


Zero Harm Commitment

We’re striving to achieve the goal of “Zero Harm” across our operations. At ITS ConGlobal, Zero Harm means the following:

  • Zero injuries
  • Zero environmental incidents
  • Zero damage incidents

General Safety Principles

We have established a set of General Safety Principles. These were developed as a result of the findings from analysis of injuries and damage incidents across the business.

1. Fit for Duty
  • Never start work under the influence, dehydrated, sleep deprived or without stretching. Immediately notify the lead manager for your operation if you become fatigued or feel ill at work.
2. PPE
  • Never start a task without wearing the required PPE. Inspect PPE before every use.
3. Climbing & Walking
  • Never travel (climb or walk) without eyes on path. Always maintain 3 points of contact when possible. Maintenance personnel shall ensure fall prevention measures are in place above 4 feet.
4. Driving
  • Never use a phone, an electronic device or read paperwork while operating a vehicle or mobile equipment. Place the unit in park if other activities besides driving need to be completed. Maintain eyes on path. Follow the speed limit and reduce speed as conditions require. Always wear a seat belt.
5. Pinch Points
  • Never place yourself or a body part in an unprotected pinch point. Ensure pedestrians or other mobile units are not in the red zone when operating equipment. Always maintain eyes on task.
6. Lifting and Hook Ups
  • Never lift a unit or pull a chassis without following the full hook up procedure for that specific task.
7. Track Protection
  • Never work an unprotected or live track. Always check the track protection before working a track.
8. Securement
  • Never release railcars that have not been properly loaded, secured or verified in writing by 2 qualified associates.
9. Immediate Reporting of Incidents and Concerns
  • Never conceal an injury or damage event. Immediately report all injuries, incidents and safety concerns to the lead manager of your operation.
These General Safety Principles apply to:
  • All ITS ConGlobal associates
  • Employees of affiliated joint venture companies where ITS ConGlobal has a controlling interest or has the agreement of our joint venture partner to employ these Safety Principles
  • Subcontractor/supplier personnel working on operation controlled by ITS ConGlobal and to visitors to locations controlled by ITS ConGlobal.

The above principles apply to every operation. When circumstances are such that a task cannot be performed without violating the intent of a principle, no ITS ConGlobal associate shall start or continue with the task.
