SAFETY REVIEW BOARD
Our Safety Review Board is an important part of our Program. The
Board is comprised of a mixture of management and non-management
employee representatives. Non-management employee representatives
will be selected randomly. There shall be three such randomly selected
non-management employee representatives on the Board at any given
time, each of whom shall serve staggered three month terms. The
Board shall be comprised of:

Employees (Randomly chosen each to serve 3 month terms)*
The Safety Review Board's responsibilities include:
- Conducting bimonthly
inspections of the workplace prior to its monthly Safety Review
Board meetings to identify and evaluate workplace hazards and
unsafe or unhealthy employee practices. The Safety Review Board
will adopt a schedule which, based on the relative seriousness
of hazards and the risk of accidents potentially presented for
any given work area, will identify when the various portions of
the workplace will be inspected as a part of such bimonthly inspections.
The inspection findings are to be documented on that month's Safety
Inspection Report and reviewed during the monthly meetings. A
copy of the report is to be attached to the copy of the appropriate
Safety Review Board Minutes and filed with the Safety Director.
Periodic scheduled inspections conducted by Supervisors or other
members of Company Management will also be reviewed by the Board
and documented in its minutes.
- Initially, upon establishment
as a part of the Board, one such employee will be designated by
the Company to serve for a five-month term, another for a four-month
term, and the third for a three-month term. Thereafter, all non-management
employees will serve for a three-month term. Upon the expiration
of such term, a new non-management employee will be randomly selected.

and analysis of all occupational injuries or illness and any unsafe
or unhealthy exposure to hazardous materials and their causes.
The Safety Review Board will submit any recommendations or suggestions

The Board may conduct its own inspection or investigation of any
occupational accident, injury or illness to assist it to reach
its conclusions concerning the cause of the accident, illness,
injury or exposure concerning any suggested abatement measures
necessary to maintain a safe and healthy workplace.
