Workplace Health & Safety

Enhancing human health and safety in the workplace

Water plays an essential role in sustaining life. That’s why a key priority within our sustainability goals is supporting health and hygiene with clean water products that help keep people safe.

We can’t play that important role unless we’re safe in our own operations. So, we continually work to improve our workplace health and safety program to protect our associates and work toward our vision of zero recordable injuries.

Health and Safety in the Workplace
Solutions for workplace health and safety

Our focus on providing sustainable and hygienic water solutions means our products help keep people safe while also conserving resources and enhancing the environment. Approximately 30% of our sales come from products that promote hygiene and keep people safe.

From backflow preventers that help prevent water-borne illnesses by keeping contaminants out of drinking water to specialized hygienic products for health care facilities, our innovations help manage water safety in places where the challenges are greatest, and where health and hygiene are paramount. 

Water flows through all buildings and public spaces, so we also focus on enhancing safety in places people use every day, like restrooms. Our BrightShield suite of products integrates touchless faucets, sensor flush valves, hand dryers and other solutions that help architects and building owners create facilities that are hygienic, touchless, smart and clean.

Health and safety in our workplaces

The safety and well-being of our associates are a top priority for our operations. Our safety and wellness programs work to protect our associates from injury while supporting their everyday health needs. 

Through continual training, proactive safety improvements and a rigorous contractor safety program, we are working toward our vision of zero recordable workplace injuries.

At the same time, we’re committed to helping our associates build strong physical and mental well-being through tools and resources such as our wellness program and our Employee Assistance Program.
