United in safety

Safety

From executive leadership to the craftsmen who expertly solve issues for our customers, the work conducted at UPS is defined by an unwavering adherence to the health and safety of our people, plus those around us and the protection of our environment. This focus is demonstrated through our commitment to developing systems and behaviors that make safety a part of our corporate fabric, and how every member of the UPS team operates every day.

safety2 program

Our Safety2 program is the foundation of the UPS culture, ensuring that all perceived and potential safety hazards are fully eliminated or mitigated before any work can start. The process begins with each UPS employee asking themselves two simple questions.

1) How can I be injured?

2) What am I going to do about it?

If a hazard is identified, action is immediately taken to fully mitigate the problem prior to work commencement.

The process begins with each UPS supervisor utilizing our custom UPS1 Safety application to examine the workspace for potential safety hazards. As part of our Behavioral Based Safety system, hazard observations and audits can be entered, and job site risk analysis can be done immediately.
