Safety

We are dedicated to the belief that people are our most important asset—and we do whatever we can to keep them safe.

At Worthington, we believe that people are our most important asset. This belief extends to the safety and welfare of our employees and everyone who enters our facilities, and to the communities in which we operate. Yes, we meet standards and requirements, but for us, it's always about doing better.
 
For nearly two decades, Worthington's SafeWorks program has been instrumental in driving a world class safety culture. We lead with safety. Nearly every meeting starts with a safety briefing, safety metrics top employees' lists of performance goals, including senior leaders, and processes for identifying hazards, reducing risks and implementing safety improvements, never stop.

For us, it's about engagement, and employees have adopted a culture where safety is everyone's responsibility. Meeting all regulatory requirements and continuous improvement efforts can be seen in our results. Our safety data has continually outperformed the industry average. Our Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR, the number of occupational injuries and illnesses per 100 employees) was 1.84 at the end of 2019. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the weighted average TCIR of the industries where the Company operates (Primary Metals Manufacturing) was 4.6 during the most recent year data has been reported (CY2018), making our safety record 2.5 times better.
