Valpo Transit, Inc. is committed to providing the highest level of safety for the public, our employees and contractors. Satisfying our customers' special needs with 100% regulatory compliance and the lowest possible risk is our first operational priority. We will never increase our risk of accident or injury to solve operational problems in the course of providing the Best Customer Experience.
To meet that commitment, Valpo Transit has adopted the Safety Management System (SMS) and developed safety policies and activities in support of an effective SMS. This plan is based on the four components of SMS: Safety Management Policy, Safety Risk Management, Safety Assurance and Safety Promotion.
Every Employee and contractor are directed and empowered to administer the SMS and its specific activities for the prevention, control, and resolution of unsafe conditions and actions. The primary objectives of this SMS plan are to proactively identify and mitigate safety hazards and risks, promote a positive safety culture and maintain regulatory compliance.
