Health, Safety, Environment & Quality
Target Zero is our global approach to Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) management and directly supports two of our Shared Core Values, Safety and Citizenship deeply rooted throughout our organization. Through Target Zero we ensure Company objectives, regulations and client HSEQ requirements are met.
Our Systematic Approach to HSEQ
Our HSEQ Policy Statement delivers a concise message stating our commitment to HSEQ and outlines our cornerstone principles essential for achieving HSEQ excellence. HSEQ Expectations expanding our policy have also been implemented across our global operations, providing a framework for developing, implementing, assessing and improving our HSEQ Management Systems.
Employees are empowered with Stop Work Authority and equipped with the necessary tools, resources and training to work safely, protect the environment and deliver Superior performance. Widespread accountability, participation and employee ownership are vital to the Company’s growth, success and continual HSEQ improvement. We expect safe work performance, our customers demand it and our families deserve it.
Company leaders demonstrate their commitment to HSEQ though visible leadership by regularly participating in safety meetings, workplace inspections, incident investigations, and management reviews. Our leaders are tasked with establishing HSEQ goals and objectives; clearly defining HSEQ roles and responsibilities; and promoting/supporting employee participation, communication and involvement in HSEQ.
The HSEQ risks associated with our activities are continually evaluated. Hazards and environmental aspects at Superior facilities and work locations are identified and controls are put in place to ensure associated risks or potential environmental impacts are mitigated to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable. We monitor and measure the effectiveness of our HSEQ Management Systems through regular site safety audits, corporate business unit evaluations, customer audits and regulatory audits.
- Injuries and incidents are NOT a cost of doing business and we CAN and WILL strive to eliminate them.
- No job is so important that we can’t take the time to do it safely.
