Keeping everyone safe requires the ability and commitment to not only respond to those changing conditions, but to proactively identify potential risks and actively work to eliminate or control them. It is a journey, not a destination.
At Bird we recognize that the creation of a workplace culture in which we are all committed to ensuring that everyone goes home at the end of the day just as healthy as when they arrived is critical to our success. It is how we work.
Taking personal ownership of safety means not only thinking about ourselves, but also our co-workers, our families, friends, and everyone else who would be impacted by a serious workplace injury, as well as the impact of that upon our business. Workplace safety is truly a case where an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
We are incredibly proud of the way personal ownership of safety is reflected in our safety performance, in the well-deserved reputation we have earned among our clients and contractors, and in the sense of family that exists among Bird employees despite our significant growth over the years.
It is a proud legacy that we are committed to nurturing and sustaining so that Safety Leadership|Built by Bird continues to be recognized across our industry as not just a tagline, but a proud testament to who we are.
