PREFACE
How to Use This Manual
To The Employer:

The purpose of this safety manual is to establish standards for an industry-specific safety program for establishments covered under the following Standard Industrial Classification (SIC code): 7992, Public Golf Courses. This safety program has been developed by the Florida Division of Safety with voluntary input from Florida employers, workers' compensation insurance carriers, labor organizations, trade associations, and other industry leaders.
This manual is intended to serve as the basis for an employer integrated safety and health management program. Implementation of this safety program satisfies the requirements of the Division of Safety. The essential elements of this program include: top management's commitment and involvement; the establishment and operation of safety committees; provisions for safety and health training; first aid procedures; accident investigations; recordkeeping of injuries; and workplace safety rules, policies, and procedures.
If this manual meets the needs of your establishment, it may be used exactly as written. If you have previously established and are maintaining a safety program, you can continue to use your program provided that the essential elements covered in this safety program are also addressed in your program. Use of all or part of this manual does not relieve employers of their responsibility to comply with other applicable local, state or federal laws. In addition, if an employer maintains the OSHA 200 Log to meet federal requirements, then that will meet the log and summary requirements of the LES SAF 200 form in Section VI of this program.
It is intended that this manual be enhanced and continuously improved by the employer. Any section of this manual may be modified by the employer to accommodate actual operations and work practices, provided that the original intent of that section is not lost. For example, if a safety committee meets weekly or quarterly instead of monthly, then Section II of the manual should be amended to accommodate this practice. If there is a safety rule, policy, or procedure appropriate for the work or work environment which has not been included, or if a rule included in Section VII is inappropriately written, then a new safety rule, policy, or procedure should be added to improve the manual. Likewise, if a specific rule in the Safety Rules, Policies, and Procedures section does not apply because the equipment or work operation described is not used, then that specific rule should be crossed out or deleted from the manual. If accidents occur, new safety rules should be developed and incorporated in Section VII of this manual to prevent their recurrence.

MANAGEMENT COMMITMENT AND INVOLVEMENT

POLICY STATEMENT
The management of this organization is committed to providing employees with a safe and healthful workplace. It is the policy of this organization that employees report unsafe conditions and do not perform work tasks if the work is considered unsafe. Employees must report all accidents, injuries, and unsafe conditions to their supervisors. No such report will result in retaliation, penalty, or other disincentive.
Employee recommendations to improve safety and health conditions will be given thorough consideration by our management team. Management will give top priority to and provide the financial resources for the correction of unsafe conditions. Similarly, management will take disciplinary action against an employee who willfully or repeatedly violates workplace safety rules. This action may include verbal or written reprimands and may ultimately result in termination of employment.
The primary responsibility for the coordination, implementation, and maintenance of our workplace safety program has been assigned to:

• Providing safety and health education and training; and

• Reviewing and updating workplace safety rules.
This policy statement serves to express management's commitment to and involvement in providing our employees a safe and healthful workplace.

Section III.
SAFETY AND HEALTH TRAINING
Safety and Health Orientation
Workplace safety and health orientation begins on the first day of initial employment or job transfer. Each employee has access to a copy of this safety manual, through his or her supervisor, for review and future reference, and will be given a personal copy of the safety rules, policies, and procedures pertaining to his or her job. Supervisors will ask questions of employees and answer employees' questions to ensure knowledge and understanding of safety rules, policies, and job-specific procedures described in our workplace safety program manual.

All employees will be instructed by their supervisors that compliance with the safety rules described in the workplace safety manual is required.
Job-Specific Training
• Supervisors will initially train employees on how to perform assigned job tasks safely.

• Supervisors will carefully review with each employee the specific safety rules, policies, and procedures that are applicable and that are described in the workplace safety manual.
• Supervisors will give employees verbal instructions and specific directions on how to do the work safely.
• Supervisors will observe employees performing the work. If necessary, the supervisor will provide a demonstration using safe work practices, or remedial instruction to correct training deficiencies before an employee is permitted to do the work without supervision.
• All employees will receive safe operating instructions on seldom-used or new equipment before using the equipment.
• Supervisors will review safe work practices with employees before permitting the performance of new, non-routine, or specialized procedures.




Periodic Retraining of Employees
All employees will be retrained periodically on safety rules, policies and procedures, and when changes are made to the workplace safety manual.
Individual employees will be retrained after the occurrence of a work-related injury caused by an unsafe act or work practice, and when a supervisor observes employees displaying unsafe acts, practices, or behaviors.
