Safety is a value that is fundamental to our culture. Bechtel has earned an industry-leading record of achieving zero lost-time incidents on projects worldwide. Year after year, our zero accidents philosophy helps put our safety performance right at the top of the industry.
At Bechtel, we believe that every accident, and therefore every injury, is preventable, and we embed that philosophy into every Bechtel project through a combination of technical field procedures and ongoing training programs. Every employee has stop-work authority—if it's not safe, don't do it. We also ask our subcontractors and partners to adopt our commitment to safety and health. The result is exceptional safety performance, even in hazardous work environments, severe weather, and remote locations.
Our dedication to safety helps keep workers safe, and it also pays off for our customers. Their operating costs go down and productivity goes up because less time is lost to accidents. And our people go home to their families safely at the end of each day.
