Our Role

Comply with environmental, health, and safety laws that apply to our operations around the world;

The Scenario

A factory associate who works close to Aarya fails to use proper techniques throughout the day, possibly endangering others. Aarya has reported this behavior several times to supervision. However, Aarya has heard the associate has avoided disciplinary action because the associate is a golf buddy with someone in upper management.

Our Stance

The commitment to “safety first” cannot be compromised by playing favorites. Any behavior that puts associates at risk of injury must be reported immediately. These concerns should be brought to a manager or supervisor; site Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS); regional EHS Manager; Human Resources; Legal; Compliance and Ethics; or the Ethics Helpline.
