Aetna Coatings Commitment to Safety


Aetna Coatings, Inc. takes pride in our commitment to injury and incident-free operations.


Aetna Coatings is an industry leader with respect to safety and environmental controls. Our entire staff, from top management to those completing the work in the field, takes safety very seriously and is committed to continually improving our safety program.


Our Safety Incentive Program encourages our employees to always maintain the highest safety standards and rewards them for successfully supervising and completing safe work hours.


An independent third-party safety consultant, as well as our in-house safety director, carefully reviews active projects as part of our commitment to always provide the safest possible working environment.


All of our employees are continually trained and have the individual responsibility to protect themselves, their fellow employees, the environment, and the customers we serve.


Our safety actions will be guided by the following principles:

  • Every employee is entitled to a safe and healthy place to work.

  • Safety is a condition of employment.

  • Zero injuries are possible.

  • Each of our supervisors is responsible for preventing injury to those they supervise.

  • Training is essential for employees to work safely and to increase their awareness.

  • Exposure, which may result in injuries or illness, must be controlled.

  • Safety off the job is just as important as safety on the job.


At Aetna Coatings, safety management is not just a program, but also a commitment. Our staff's commitment is essential, and at Aetna Coatings that commitment is apparent in the continued results of our safety records, our safety programs, and the attitude of all involved, from those completing the work in the field to the top management.

Aetna Coatings' Philosophy to Achieve Zero Injuries

Aetna Coatings has adopted the "Zero Injury" philosophy.

Aetna Coatings will create a culture that all employees at all levels accept ownership of the safety performance objective of "Zero Injuries". The president sets the expectation and empowers all employees to do what is necessary to reach zero injury performance.

Aetna Coatings recognizes that opportunity and profit lost through workers' injury is not covered by insurance.

Aetna Coatings understands the high cost of workers' compensation is driven by worker's injury and that achieving zero injury performance is a key component of responsible management.

Aetna Coatings will be an active participant as the project embraces the "Zero Injury" philosophy.
