The Endowment works collaboratively with partners in the public and private sectors to advance systemic, transformative and sustainable change for the health and vitality of the nation’s working forests and forest-reliant communities.
America's forests are sustainably managed to meet broad societal objectives such as marketable products, clean waters, wildlife habitats, and other ecological services while ensuring healthy and vibrant forest-reliant communities.
At Restoration Fuels, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities (Endowment), we share this mission and vision. However, we also recognize that our most valuable resources are the people who work for us or with us. Worker, contractor, supplier, and neighboring-community safety is a cornerstone of our values. Our safety objective is to be injury and incident free in our operating facilities. To achieve this objective, we are committed to keeping all individuals safe and complying with all government regulations pertaining to safety and health issues. An effective, robust, and inclusive Health & Safety Program will be carried out throughout our organization.
Restoration Fuels’ Health & Safety Program will assist both management and non-supervisory employees in controlling hazards and risks which will minimize employee and customer injuries, damage to customer's property, and damage or destruction of Restoration Fuels' property. This program is designed to encourage all employees to promote the safety of their fellow employees and contractors as their number one priority. To accomplish our health and safety goals, every employee is responsible and accountable for implementing this policy, and to ensure it is followed. Willful violations of safety policy or procedures will not be tolerated. As we are co-located with the Malheur Lumber Company, our safety programs and training will be integrated with those of the mill.
The policy of Restoration Fuels is to ensure that all employees and contractors are provided safe, working equipment, adequate tools and training, and the necessary protective equipment. It is both the employee and contractor's responsibility to do the following: work safely; bring safety issues to the supervisors and management team and to help with the resolution of these issues; report incidents and near misses; follow the rules of safety as established for their protection and the protection of others; and to use the protective devices, which Restoration Fuels and its Contractors provide.
