Safety and Health

NRCS strives to provide a work environment that is safe, clean, and healthful. Safety is everyone’s job and responsibility. NRCS employees have to work to help foster a safe and healthy work environment. The main point to remember is that we are all responsible for working to maintain a safe and healthy work place.
Please:

  • Drive defensively

  • Avoid situations that expose you or others to risk

  • Immediately report on-the-job accidents, injury, illness, or property damage to your supervisor

  • Immediately report suspected unsafe/unhealthy working conditions to your supervisor or safety and health officer

  • Maintain a drug-free and alcohol-free work place
