Code of Business Ethics

Promoting Safety and Health

We have a clear responsibility to protect our coworkers, our community and ourselves by making health and safety issues the primary consideration in everything we do and everywhere we go. We integrate safety and health considerations into our decision-making and work to identify existing and emerging risks. We seek to mitigate risks to the health and safety of our employees and others who visit or work on our premises and the communities in which we operate. We promptly and effectively respond to, investigate and share the learning from safety and health incidents, taking any appropriate corrective action as necessary.

What is health and safety?

Health and safety includes the prevention of illness and injury and the promotion of well-being in the workplace. Health and safety laws and regulations exist to safeguard the working conditions of employees, and of visitors to business premises.
