At Heartland Fabrication LLC, safety is the top priority in every aspect of our process from raw material receipt and processing through barge launch. It is our collective mission to ensure that every employee has the capability and tools to work in a safe manner and with confidence. HLF takes great pride in making certain that our workshops, processes and equipment are clean, orderly and in good condition, and that any job task can be accomplished with minimal risk.
We expect that every employee strictly adheres to safety policies and procedures, promptly corrects and reports any unsafe condition, and takes an active role in the compliance and promotion of safe work practices. Furthermore, we expect that our Lead Men and Supervisors actively improve work conditions on a continuous basis, promote and enforce safety programs, and work closely with management to recognize, mitigate, and control unsafe tasks or unsafe employee practices. As a team, we encourage hazard recognition and elimination.
As HLF works to continuously improve our safety environment and our culture, we will continue to offer top quality barge construction. We recognize that a safe manufacturing process is an efficient and effective process. As a premier service provider to the inland river transportation market, we consider it in HLF’s and our customers’ best interests to always prioritize safety at this facility.
