We believe there is no greater responsibility than keeping our team members safe and healthy. It is our number one priority. It is also why our safety protocols and programs are so embedded in our Vulcan culture. We are committed to engaging every team member — from plant managers and team members to our CEO and every level in between — to prioritize safety across all of our operations, offices and locations. We believe safety is a personal and shared responsibility.

Vulcan’s Safety, Health & Environment Board Committee, along with our full Board of Directors, has oversight over our safety and health program and performance. Our Safety, Health & Environment Management Committee, made up of Vulcan senior leadership and senior personnel from cross-functional operations, governs all safety, health and environmental initiatives on an ongoing basis.

To reinforce our culture of safety, our leadership routinely hosts joint safety and operational meetings to discuss performance and safety as well as other ways to support safety across our facilities. Additionally, we have Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) teams consisting of operations and safety personnel who conduct internal inspections and assessments. SHE teams conduct these assessments at their own location and other facilities to evaluate the effectiveness of our current safety measures. As a result of their efforts, we can identify and share best practices, plus discover potential hazards while building inter-plant collaboration between safety teams.
