To support this commitment, Applied Industrial Technologies has an integrated Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Program which provides the framework for meeting our commitment by:
- Complying with applicable provincial and federal legislation

EHS is the responsibility of all employees, and therefore all employees are responsible to conduct themselves in a manner which is compliant with this policy, applicable legislation and the EHS Program as a whole.
