Safety Policies & Procedures

At Whitworth Tool, we "Never Give Safety a Day Off."  You'll find all of our safety policies and procedures below.  If you have any questions or need help finding something, please email Ray Stewart, EHS Coordinator at


Whitworth Tool Inc. provides a safe and healthful workplace for our employees. This policy and procedure will provide a method to safe guard our employees from being occupationally exposed to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), during first-aid and emergency situations. It is also the intent of this policy to comply with federal OSHA requirements listed in 29 CFI 1910.1030.

Whitworth Tool Inc. complies with the OSHA Electrical Safety Standard, Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.333, by providing written procedures for preventing electric shock or other injuries resulting from direct/indirect electrical contacts to employees working on or near energized or deenergized parts. This program applies to all work operations at Whitworth Tool Inc. where employees may be exposed to live parts and/or those parts that have been deenergized.

Emergency Action Plan

This plan identifies the necessary management and employee actions during fire, severe storms and other emergencies which could cause personal injury or property damage. All employees are expected to know the details of this plan. Education and training are provided for all employees.

This template constitutes the SPCC Plan for the facility, when completed and signed by the owner or operator of a facility that meets the applicability criteria in §112.3(g)(1). This template addresses the requirements of 40 CFR part 112. 

Fire Safety Plan

This plan identifies the necessary management and employee actions for the prevention of fire and during fire. All employees are expected to know the details of this plan and, accordingly, education and training are provided for all employees.

Whitworth Tool Inc. is committed to the safety of all employees.  This plan ensures that all employees work under the safest conditions possible, that we maintain employment and places of employment free from recognized hazard, and that we provide the information, training, and supervision necessary to enable employees to perform their jobs and work assignments safely.

The purpose of this program is to inform interested persons, including employees, that our company is complying with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.1200, by compiling a hazardous chemicals list, using safety data sheets (SDSs), ensuring that containers are labeled or provided other forms of warning, and training our employees.

This policy serves at Whitworth Tool Inc.'s occupational hearing conservation program for our workers to prevent any temporary or permanent noise-induced hearing loss to employees, and to comply with the federal OSHA standard found at 29 CFR 1910.95 and 1926.52.

This plan helps safeguard employees from the unexpected start-up of machines or equipment or release of hazardous energy while they are performing servicing or maintenance.

Whitworth Tool provides all Employees with required PPE to suit the task and known hazards. This document includes the requirements for Personal Protective Equipment with the exception of PPE used for hearing conservation and respiratory protection or PPE required for hazardous material response to spills or releases, which if applicable are covered under separate programs.

This plan, created by Legacy PT and Katie Critchelow, provide stretching exercises to keep Whitworth Tool employees comfortable and flexible while on the job.  

This Active Shooter Response Plan is designed to be a supplement to the Whitworth Tool Emergency Action Plan (EP). The template for this plan was developed by a working group comprised of Federal agencies, law enforcement professionals and experts in emergency management operations.
