OFS maintains a strong code of safety for its employees and for the environment. Their policy is short, clear, and guides everything they do and everything they make. Workplace safety and protection of the environment are part of every employee’s job and responsibility.

No employee has the authority or the responsibility to work unless the job will be done safely.
From their customers’ point of view, they believe keeping their employees healthy and uninjured, and their plant fully running without accidents, results in carefully crafted products delivered on time.
Part of their environmental commitment, includes adhering to U.S. and international laws and directives related to manufacturing and environmental practices.
