Our Safety Culture
We focus on proactive safety actions.
Pond management recognizes the importance of employee health and safety and is committed to achieving an injury-free workplace. Our expectation is that each employee and all stakeholders will contribute to our evolving culture of safety interdependence by protecting themselves and those they work with. All employees are empowered to stop work that they feel will result in an injury, and seek continual improvement solutions that will prevent future recurrence.
We routinely measure the achievement of our annual health and safety goals, and routinely recognize employees for going above and beyond. Employee health and safety has become a culture at Pond. The level of training, ownership, and trust in our Health and Safety program makes Pond more than a safe workplace; it creates a company that continues to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

We will be Safety Leaders. We will never compromise on safety – it is our first thought.
We will enable a “safety first and all of the time” culture wherever we live and work around the globe.
