  • Business partner operations will be performed in accordance with the company/federal safety practices.
  • The term contractor also includes sub-contractors and vendors.
  • All business partners shall comply with all company and governmental safety rules and regulations.  Disregard for safety rules is grounds for termination of contract.

  • Business partners shall provide their personnel with all needed safety equipment. 
  • All accidents involving business partner personnel shall be reported immediately to the company representative in charge of the project.
