We are responsible for seeking out new and innovative ways to prevent injury and illness in our business and to ensure that our workplaces are free of occupational injury and illness. We live each day for each other and use our collective commitment, talents, resources and systems to deliver on our most important commitment... to care.

We are honest with ourselves and others, and we deal ethically with all of our business and social partners. We seek to preserve people’s sense of self-worth in all our interactions, respecting them for who they are and valuing the unique contribution that they can make to our business success.
