The SafeUp® Framework

The Principles of EHS Excellence

Lead EHS at all Levels

We execute a risk-based EHS program and foster an environment where everyone is a safety champion

Managers and supervisors execute our EHS program, safeguard employees, and foster an environment where everyone is a safety champion. We prevent incidents and injuries by using risk-informed, conservative decision making.

Empower Employees

Every employee shows care for each other by speaking up, embracing safety and actively engaging in safe work practices and EHS improvements.

We foster an environment where safety is embraced and acted upon by every employee. Employees actively engage in development of safe work practices and EHS improvements. Everyone shows care for people and have the courage to speak up regarding unsafe work practices.

Manage Operational Risk

We reduce risk through effective use of the hierarchy of controls and provide safe, healthy working conditions to prevent workplace incidents.

We recognize, evaluate, and manage risk to develop effective controls and provide safe and healthy working conditions to prevent incidents, injuries, illnesses, and environmental pollution. All EHS risks are reduced to levels as low as reasonably achievable.

Advance Organizational Learning

We strive for continual improvement and optimize performance through open communications, EHS expertise, and the creation of best practice and innovative EHS solutions.

We continually improve our EHS system through performance monitoring, sharing of lessons learned, and creating best practices. As an organization, we openly communicate EHS information, challenge the status quo, and develop innovative solutions to optimize performance.
