Safety

At Z&R we sincerely believe that safety is everyone's business and is an integral part of every employee's job.

The importance of the rules and procedures cannot be over emphasized. It is the responsibility of all transportation personnel to become fully acquainted with them and adhere to them at all times. Management will review infractions to any rule or procedure within appropriate action taken. If you have any questions regarding the information or policies, please do not hesitate to ask our supervisor.

The work locations and the types of work done by Z&R are potentially hazardous to workers. In the interest of worker and driver safety, Z&R has developed many safe work practices and job procedures to assist supervisors and workers with the identification and control of hazards. A comprehensive list of safe work practices that are used by Z&R are found in the corporate Health and Safety Management Guide.
