HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY

Opta values the Health and Safety of its employees, and believes this to be of primary importance in our operations.

Opta values the Health and Safety of its employees, and believes this to be of primary importance in our operations. It is our highest priority to maintain and exemplify a safe and healthy work environment. It is the responsibility of employees, temporary employees, contractors, and visitors at all levels to provide and achieve a safe and healthy work environment. Each is responsible for conducting their activities in a safe and healthy manner, reporting all sub-standard and or unsafe conditions to their Supervisor or Facility contact.

Supervisors and Managers at each Opta location are responsible for communicating, facilitating, and implementing actions consistent with this policy. The senior manager in charge of each facility has direct responsibility and authority for maintaining compliance with this policy.

By working together collaboratively, and giving the most careful attention to the management of Health and Safety, we will meet our shared objectives of a healthier and safer working environment.

Opta will practice health and safety workplace responsibility by:

Striving to exceed applicable health and safety laws and regulations, and customer standards where practical and feasible.

Ensuring our employees, temporary employees, contractors, and visitors are
aware of, trained, and competent to carry out their safety responsibilities.

Designing, operating, and maintaining our facilities to eliminate and minimize risk.

Improving our operations through employee involvement, continual performance measurement, and initiating appropriate corrective/preventive action where appropriate.

Working safely, encouraging others to do so, and actively participating in health and safety improvement efforts.

Demonstrating our values and commitment to health and safety in our
communications, planning, and business decisions.
