7.1 Sick Days
Three 3 paid sick days are permitted to all salaried employees. The Company may require appropriate documentation for such sick leave.
7.2 Accidents And Illnesses
All accidents, injuries, or illness involving Industrial Painter .com employees, and customers must be reported to your Supervisor immediately. If available, the individual should go to the first aid area. It is absolutely essential that complete accident reports be filled out right after the incident takes place.
7.3 Accident Investigation
From a practical standpoint, experience is still the best teacher, and we investigate accidents to determine what happened for the purpose of detecting what specifically should be done to eliminate or control hazards.
Keep in mind that an accident isn't exactly the same thing as an injury. An accident is an unplanned event, something unexpected. It can result in a work interruption, property loss, injury or even a (near-miss). A heavy tool is dropped from forty feet, damaging a piece of equipment. A ladder breaks, but no one is hurt. These are both accidents. Even though no one was hurt they are still undesirable events and both should be investigated to prevent reoccurrence.
7.4 Investigate Every Accident
Every accident consists of a cause and a result. An accident involving a slight injury may reveal as many constructive conclusions as the investigation of a serious injury. When describing the cause of an accident, be accurate and specific. Concluding that an accident was caused by (employee carelessness) does not really identify the problem. Perhaps the person did not have adequate skill and experience to perform the job correctly. Was the employee properly trained in the correct methods? These are the kind of specifics, which can really help when it comes time to take action to prevent the accident from occurring again.
7.5 Eliminating Hazards
Remember Murphy's Law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Again, don't make the mistake of oversimplifying your solution. If someone is injured by a fall caused by a defective ladder, merely destroying the ladder is not the proper solution. Perhaps an inspection of all ladders should be made. Are other crafts in the area responsible for the damage? Did the employee alter the ladder in some way making it unsafe? Are ladders of the same brand defective? Was the correct ladder for the job being used? There can be many reasons and therefore many solutions. Take the time to find the right one. Don't let the valuable information gained from an investigation go to waste. Take immediate steps to put your findings into action.

Every salaried female employee is now entitled as a matter of law to at least eight (8) weeks maternity leave if she complies with the following conditions:

Accrued sick leave benefits shall be provided for maternity leave purposes under the same terms and conditions, which apply to other temporary medical disabilities.
