WELCOME to the Littleton/Englewood Wastewater Treatment Plant’s (L/EWWTP) Occupational Safety and Health Program web site. Our program has been developed around the basic concepts of risk management. It is intended to set direction, establish requirements, provide guidelines, and develop procedures and practices for plant-wide programs.
Although our plant resides within a state with no occupational safety and health laws that apply to public employees, the plant has adopted the Federal Agency safety programs and responsibilities of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970 as well as applicable industry standards and codes.Under this program, there is an emphasis on increased upper-level management involvement. Program direction and leadership are directly derived from management. The technical work and counsel are developed by the Safety Coordinator.
- Promote and support the communication of health and safety hazards among staff through the use of reliable record keeping processes and incentive programs.
- Implement accident prevention and other risk management programs to maintain reportable injuries below the industry average and reduce liability exposure to continually decrease insurance premiums.
- During this ﬁscal year, the plant will provide at least twelve monthly safety-training programs at which 90 percent of the applicable employees shall attend.
