The Water System Improvement Program (WSIP) Construction “Safety Approach” applies to all personnel and companies contracted to work on any Project related to our WSIP Construction program. As part of the Safety Approach, all Parties are required to comply with the WSIP contract safety requirements, the California Code of Regulations, Title 8, and all applicable Federal and Local regulatory standards. If there is a conflict between any applicable safety standards, the most stringent shall apply.
The goal of the Safety Approach is to establish superior safety performance on WSIP projects and to define roles, responsibilities, programs, policies and procedures to accomplish this goal. All Parties to this Approach shall implement measures to develop an acute awareness that shall promote error-free performance at the project worksites and facilitate achieving contract objectives in the safest manner possible. An additional WSIP safety goal is to construct each Project with ZERO incidents, totally free from accidents. This goal can only be achieved when everyone commits to error-free performance. The commitment to achieve this goal will result in increased productivity and the prevention of job related losses.
