Safety Comes First

The safety of our team and the communities in which we operate is of paramount importance to us and remains a key part of our business culture.

We envision an organization where no one gets hurt — one that ensures we can meet our commitments to employees, their families and our customers around the world, while keeping us competitive.

Our relentless pursuit of safety is rooted in our care and concern for people and their families. We believe Safety is a shared responsibility. Everyone has the right and responsibility to stop work if conditions become unsafe, regardless of position or experience.


2021 Safety Performance Data

Our approach to caring for each other — Stop. Think. Protect. — has a focus on incident prevention through safety leadership at all levels, front-line engagement and active recognition and control of high-potential exposures that may lead to life-altering injuries.
