We are relentless in both eliminating hazards in the workplace, as well as ensuring that there are established procedures for every part of our process. We continually reinvest in equipment, processes and techniques that have the best in safety, quality and productivity in mind. Our safety program is more than just attending meetings and conducting audits, it’s a culture where associates want to perform in a safe manner and value a safe workplace.
Our Safety Policy
Precision Strip believes that all accidents are preventable. We are committed to continuous improvement in safety by eliminating the causes of workplace accidents.

We expect all associates to place safety above expediency or short cuts, while working toward our goal of zero accidents.
