Safety

The Boys & Girls Club of the Eastern Panhandle is committed to ensuring the safety of staff and members. Every employee has a vested interest in safety, and the responsibility to act in the interest of safety. This requires cooperation in doing everything possible to correct unsafe conditions, eliminate unsafe practices, and prevent loss. We devote considerable effort to providing a safe working environment and adequate safeguards against accident hazards through the proper use of equipment, methods, and trained personnel. 

Our goal to provide a safe workplace with safe equipment operated by safe workers is accomplished by ensuring all staff and volunteers abide by the following rules:

  • Wear appropriate eye and ear protection when necessary;

  • Wear appropriate clothing to match the type of work being done;

  • Encourage the use of ergonomic equipment when available;

  • In all emergency situations (power failure; tornado, fire or medical situation etc.), everyone will follow the Boys & Girls Club of the Eastern Panhandle policies;

  • Use proper lifting techniques when lifting or moving items;

  • All eligible drivers will have a valid driver's license, have a safe driving record as approved by our auto insurance company and practice defensive driving techniques.
