Environmental, Health and Safety Policy

People are Guardian’s most valuable asset. To protect this asset, it is Guardian’s position that there are no assignments that are so important that we do not have time to do them safely and consistent with applicable laws and best practices. Guardian is committed to efficient use of natural resources while operating in a way that protects the safety, health and well-being of our employees, the environment, and the community.

Guardian will comply with all environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) laws and regulations that apply to our activities and with other standards or requirements the organization has adopted. Guardian may choose to go beyond full compliance with the law when it adds value. Guardian places an emphasis on eliminating or mitigating risks that may impact people, the environment, or the long-term success of our business.

As a result, Guardian and its employees will:

  • Strive to achieve EH&S excellence by assuring compliance, managing other risks not covered by regulations, and addressing emerging issues.
  • Create value for our customers, the company, and society through optimization and innovation while working to conserve resources including energy, water, and raw materials; increasing efforts to recycle and reuse; and reducing or eliminating waste.
  • Maintain safe and healthy working conditions and processes, and develop effective and efficient EH&S management systems designed to assure compliance.
  • Establish goals, targets, and objectives to achieve and measure improvements in EH&S performance.
  • Integrate EH&S considerations into business planning, risk assessments, budget development, capital projects, and property transactions.
  • Consider environmental impacts and safety during the design, manufacture, and distribution of our products.
  • Provide strong leadership to assure compliance and work to continually improve the EH&S management and performance of our facilities and products to ensure long-term viability of the business.
  • Build and maintain integrity-based relationships with employees, government officials, the community and other interested parties to identify and address EH&S concerns effectively.
  • Utilize risk management tools including culture assessments, audits, risk assessments, and root cause analysis to improve our EH&S compliance and performance.

Guardian will provide employees with the information, training, tools, and support necessary for them to understand and achieve compliance with EH&S regulations and related company policies and standards. All employees, regardless of position within the organization, are responsible and will be held accountable for EH&S compliance and performance. Every employee must be familiar with and follow this policy; success in doing so will be an important factor in evaluating employee performance and critical to the company’s long-term success. We believe that accident prevention, environmental protection, and efficient manufacturing go hand-in-hand. Each employee must act with integrity to keep our company a safe and healthy place to work while respecting the environment.
