Safety and Health Policy

Personal Safety and Health of each Northstar Communications Inc. employee is of primary importance

Northstar Communications Inc. is committed to eliminating all injuries and illnesses, and will be given precedence over operating productivity whenever necessary. To the greatest degree possible, management will provide all mechanical and physical facilities required for personal safety and health in keeping with the highest standards. Northstar Communications Inc. will maintain a Safety and Health program conforming to the best practices of organizations of this type.

To be successful, such a program must embody the proper attitudes towards injury and illness prevention on the part of both supervisors and employees. It also requires cooperation in all Safety and Health matters, not only between supervisor and employee but also between each employee and his fellow workers. Only through such a cooperative effort can a safety record in the best interest of all be established and maintained. Our objective is a Safety and Health program that will reduce the number of disabling injuries and illness to a minimum, not merely in keeping with, but surpassing the best experience of other companies similar to ours.

Job Site Safety

For Northstar Communications Inc., our safety program is a high priority with high accountability. We assign full-time safety manager to every office location. The safety manager monitors compliance with the safety manual, safety processes, and training. Full compliance is not only required by Northstar Communications Inc. employees, but for all subcontractors as well. It is the safety manager’s main task to instill a safety conscience attitude for all the employees and sub-contractors on the site. With this attitude, one can expect a safe work environment on the project site. All incidents on the project site are reported within 24 hours, as specified in the safety manual. Daily tail-gate meetings are scheduled for each individual crew, and weekly safety meeting s are mandatory for all field personnel.

Safety inspections are ongoing, and safety infractions are logged for follow-up, correction and or disciplinary actions.

In addressing the safety requirements of this proposal and every Northstar Communications Inc. work location,

the Northstar Communications Inc. team will implement our existing safety program onsite. The Northstar Communications Inc. safety program has been written in compliance with OSHA standards, and provides initial safety and orientation training reinforced with weekly and daily safety instruction and inspection. The Northstar Communications Inc. safety records validate our commitment to improvement and our history has shown that we meet or exceed the recommended experience ratings.

QA and QC Process Report and Resolve Discrepancies, Schedule Progress, and Incidents
