POLICY
Our customers trust us to maintain clean facilities and to provide timely, quality service. Various
federal, state and county agencies regulate and monitor sanitation and safety standards in our
industry. Inspections can be made at any time and penalties are severe.
Every GENCO teammate has a personal responsibility to respect his/her work area, other
teammates, and our customers' products.
Teammates must use the containers provided for trash disposal and keep each work area free of
rubbish, report malfunctioning equipment and any safety hazards to a supervisor. Horseplay is
unsafe and is strictly prohibited.
If a teammate leaves the site of an accident without reporting the incident to a supervisor, the
teammate will be subjected to corrective action up to and including immediate termination of
employment. Accidents or injuries involving carelessness, recklessness or other serious failure
to perform duties safely and diligently will result in severe corrective action up to and including
termination of employment.
Drug and alcohol tests will be administered to teammates involved in any accident that results in:
•
•
•
•
•
Damage to product
Damage to property
Injury to personnel (any teammate including self)
Careless and/or unsafe behavior
Any other significant accident regardless of damage sustained or absence of damage to
product, property or personnel.
Teammates sent for drug and alcohol testing after a “serious event” will be transported to the
testing facility via the Facility Manager’s designated representative. Cabs or other public
transportation must be used to transport teammates to be tested. Personal vehicles must not be
used to transport teammates sent for post-accident drug/alcohol testing. Consistent with the
requirements of the Alcohol and Drugs in the Workplace Policy, this should be within thirty (30)
minutes of the accident and completing the accident report.
Teammates will be suspended pending the results of a drug and alcohol test when the incident is
considered a “serious event” as determined by the Facility Manager or Customer Service Vice
President. A “serious event” is defined as an incident that creates an environment that is
dangerous to the health and well being of the teammate and/or others, a serious violation of
safety rules, substantial property damage, and/or probable cause as defined under the GENCO
Substance Abuse Policy. A teammate will be reinstated and paid for all regularly scheduled work
hours missed as a result of the suspension, upon written confirmation of a negative drug and
alcohol test. Teammates sent for drug and alcohol testing after a “serious event” will be
transported to the testing facility via the Facility Manager’s designated representative. Managers
may contact Corporate Teammate Services for clarification on suspension process.
Cabs or other public transportation must be used to transport teammates to be tested. Personal
vehicles must not be used to transport teammates sent for post-accident drug/alcohol testing.

SAFETY CITATION / 3 STRIKE POLICY
The safety citation / 3 strike policy is a safety policy geared toward creating a safer work
environment. Any teammate committing an unsafe act, or in any way affecting his/her safety or
the safety of other teammates, will be cited.
Any member of management can issue a safety citation if they witness an unsafe act. A citation
will be issued only when management personally witnesses an unsafe act or when management
views evidence of an accident or reasonable proof that a safety violation has occurred.
After the safety violation has occurred, the facility manager will conduct a citation briefing with
the teammate. During this meeting, management will instruct the teammate on the violation and
educate the teammate on how to avoid repeating the unsafe act. Each safety citation will be
dated and signed by the teammate, supervisor and facility manager. All citations will remain in
the teammate’s file, with copies provided to the teammate and to the Department of Loss
Prevention. Refusal by a teammate to cooperate in the citation briefing can lead to additional
corrective action.
If the safety violations involve forklift issues, the manager must remove the teammate’s forklift
license but may retain the teammate in another capacity. Any single safety violation can lead to
suspension and/or termination if it is deemed “severe” by the facility manager, CSVP and
Teammate Services.
Each citation will expire from a teammate’s record one year from the date the citation was
issued. Receiving three safety citations within a one-year period subjects a teammate to
termination of employment.
Any questions regarding the 3 strike policy should be directed to the Department of Loss Prevention.
Any questions concerning GENCO’S safety policies should be addressed to your supervisor,
manager or Vice President. Any violations of these safety rules will result in disciplinary action.
