The safety of our employees, contractors, the public and the environment is our number one priority and reflects our commitment to Doing the Right Thing.

We conduct our business responsibly and with the utmost integrity, working in accordance with our core values and rigorously adhering to all federal, state and local regulations.

Safety is personal at Ward. We hold each other accountable for keeping our sites, our co-workers, the public, and the environment safe. This philosophy is demonstrated in our Stop Work program. Through Stop Work, every employee and contractor has the right and responsibility to stop work if that person believes conditions are unsafe or could harm the environment.

Partnering with local emergency responders is also an important component of our safety program and community engagement efforts. We are a leader in working with first responders and local fire departments so everyone is well prepared in the unlikely event of an emergency. This important effort includes regular on-site trainings and table-top drills.
