Every individual, whether an AAEG Employee, contract Employee, sub Employee, vendor or visitor has a
duty to conduct themselves in an orderly and sensible manner. You are to safely perform all work
assignments by following established safe work practices and utilizing appropriate personal protective
equipment. You are to select the proper tools and safety equipment necessary to properly perform the
job to which you were assigned. Tools and equipment are to be maintained in a clean, safe, and reliable
operating condition and are to be used in a manner consistent with their intended purposes. Each worker
is responsible for keeping the work area clean and uncluttered. Stay aware of your surroundings and
report any unsafe act or condition to your supervisor or an AAEG representative immediately. Above all,

around you foremost in your thoughts.
JOB SITE’S RESPONSIBILITIES
AAEG will maintain a program that provides systematic policies, procedures, and practices that, when
followed, will serve to protect its Employees from, and allow them to recognize, job-related safety and
health hazards. The program includes provisions to identify, evaluate, and prevent or control general
workplace hazards, specific job hazards, and potential hazards that may arise from foreseeable conditions.
Although compliance with the law is an objective, the program will look beyond the specific requirements
of law to address all identifiable hazards. Our goal is the prevention of injuries and illnesses, whether or
not compliance is at issue.
AAEG will continually obtain and evaluate information regarding its safety performances and programs.
We will use this information to accomplish desired job tasks without compromising the safety and health
of its Employees and anyone else in its work area.
AAEGwill provide a site-specific safety orientation to its Employees and subcontractor’s Employees before
they are allowed to commence work. This orientation will include site-specific information such as:
- Specific Client and AAEGJob Site Safety Policies and Procedures including;
- Information about the potential for fire, explosion, or toxic release;
- Chemical hazards related to the specific facility, work and processes;
- The location of information pertaining to site-specific hazards(MSDS);
- Job Site requirements for personal protective equipment and safety devices;
- Information about the alarm signals and what they mean;
- Directions for proper Employee responses to alarms and emergency signal
- Emergency evacuation procedures, safe refuge and reporting requirements;
- On-site contacts, their names and where they can be found; and
- The location of the nearest available medical clinic.
The term “Employees” as referred to in this handbook refers collectively to all AAEG Employees, it
contractors, subcontractors, and their Employees working at the Job Site.
All Employees must ensure that they are properly trained to safely and proficiently perform the task to
which they are assigned. If in doubt, notify your supervisor to obtain the required training before
attempting to perform any questionable tasks. Information relative to the known potential of fire,
explosion, or toxic release hazards related to the type of work the Employee is expected to perform will
also be communicated to the Employee.
Each Employee must advise the Job Site Safety Coordinator of any observed potential hazards while at
the Job Site.
AAEG or its client will provide MSDS on all chemicals or other potentially hazardous materials to be used
by the Employee while working at the Job Site.
The Employee must ensure that it complies with all standards and governmental regulations pertaining
to the work being performed. AAEG will provide access to written procedures and other applicable
governmental rules and regulations associated with Employee’s work.
Each Employee is responsible for ensuring that they follow both the safety rules and regulations of the
AAEG Job Site and other applicable safety rules. A Job Site Safety Coordinator will be designated to work
with its crew(s) while working at the Job Site. The Job Site Safety Coordinator may be a member of the
work crew, such as the supervisor or other person working at the Job Site. Weekly tool-box safety
meetings will be conducted for all of Employees while working at the Job Site.
