Safety at SVI

Management considers no phase of operation or administration to be of greater importance than the environmental safety, health and well being of our employees and the others around which we work.

It is the stated policy of our companies to provide and maintain a safe and healthy working environment through employee commitment, hazard analysis/elimination and training.

It is the responsibility of all members of management to make safety part of their daily concern. Every employee, no matter the position they hold, must accept this responsibility.

SVI/CSI just surpassed 5.6 million safe work hours without a lost time accident.
