Self-audits keep us sharp.
Each location receives multiple (scheduled and random) audits to ensure all policies, procedures and best practices are adhered to and effective. Audit results are shared with our employees, and improvements made where necessary. Mississippi Sand welcomes regulatory agencies on our properties and utilizes them as a resource to ensure we maintain compliance with the abundant and ever-changing regulations.
- Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) certification
- Annual safe practice refresher courses
- Manager-led weekly safety meetings
- Safety tours for local police, fire and EMS personnel to familiarize them with our facility and working practices
Managers don't just manage.
Another key component of our safety and health program is our on-site managers. Our managers are selected not only for their production expertise, but also for their ability to lead by example. Our managers are “active listeners”, a skill that fosters a culture of employee participation and pride in our company’s accomplishments. With a pool of educated, empowered employees, who take pride in their work and the work of the organization, a safe and healthy environment is a natural byproduct.
