A Culture of Safety
DREICOR has instituted a Behavioral Based Safety (BBS) System, a bottom-up approach that encourages reporting of safety issues and risks before incidents occur.
DREICOR generates a Safe Plan of Action (SPA) for all tasks at the beginning of each shift. BBS and SPA activities are closely related, as they emphasize the importance of identifying potentially dangerous conditions before they develop into an incident.
DREICOR provides site-specific safety training, as well as OSHA 10 for employees and OSHA 30 for supervision and management. All classes are led by our Safety Director, a Certified Safety Professional.Learn more about the DREICOR Safety Program
