The Health And Safety Of People Is Valued Above All Else
AmeriGas’ daily business decisions give safety priority, superior to the other business considerations. Safety is never to be compromised.

AmeriGas managers and employees strive for an injury free workplace; are never satisfied when injuries occur, and take the required action to prevent them.
All Tasks And Operating Practices Can Be Reasonably Safeguarded
For all jobs in which there may be a safety hazard, management conducts risk analysis, determines safe work practices, develops safe operating procedures, and takes necessary actions to minimize risk to workers. Jobs that cannot be conducted safely are not undertaken by AmeriGas.
Safety Is A Line Management Responsibility
All AmeriGas managers and supervisors are responsible for and held accountable for training their employees on jobs in which there may be a significant safety hazard, providing a safe and orderly working environment, investigating near misses, accidents and injuries, and developing a plan to prevent their re-occurrence.
Working Safely is An Essential Element of Employee Performance
All AmeriGas employees are responsible and accountable for preventing injuries in their areas of responsibility. This includes working safely, reporting injuries, unsafe practices and conditions immediately, and participating in accident and incident investigations.
