American Bottoms has developed an
Employee Health & Safety Program to ensure that its employees,
as well as contractors and visitors to the facility, have a safe
environment in which to work. It is our policy to maintain a

injuries. Employees are continually made aware of the hazards
and how to protect themselves and others from harm. The
cooperation and commitment of employees at all levels within the
organization is what makes this program a success.
Safety is the foundation of
the company's culture.
