Workplace Safety Headerv2 scaled 1

Amotec has practiced a dedication to safety since our founding in 2000. We believe that exemplifying safe work practices should begin before the first day. That is why every Amotec recruiter undergoes safety/workman’s comp training and each client and candidate is held to local, state and federal safety regulations. Our talent acquisition teams emphasize the specific safety practices required of each individual job opening.

The Candidate Safety Promise:

  • I am responsible for my own workplace safety.
  • I will go above and beyond the minimum safety standards required of my job.
  • I will continually improve my safety behaviors and decrease my exposure to risk.
  • I will be an example of safe conduct for my coworkers.
  • Every job can be done safely.
  • Working safely is a condition of my employment.
