Health, Safety and Environment

At Jacobs, we believe the well-being of our people is fundamental to our success. Our passion for safety and our courage to care for one another and our environment inspires mutual respect.

Lenses on the world

Safety is not what we do, it’s who we are. We call it our way of life, BeyondZero®, our Culture of Caring.

Why BeyondZero®?

We are proud that in our culture, our people go beyond following rules, procedures and processes. Our goal is beyond driving statistics to zero. We believe our culture will make our people and communities safer and healthier. We look for ways to recognize and mitigate risks, on and off the job. We drive and promote healthy behavior and care for the environment. We have created a true culture of caring where genuine concern for each other makes it impossible to tolerate unsafe conditions or behaviors.

Our HSE performance is enduring, industry leading and world-class.

In 2018 we continued to demonstrate safety excellence with another year of zero employee fatalities at work, as well as a total recordable injury rate of 0.19 per 200,000 hours worked, versus the industry’s most recently reported aggregate rate of 0.22.

In April 2018, Jacobs was awarded a Gold Award in the Mind Workplace Wellbeing Index. The award recognized Jacobs for successfully embedding mental health into our practices and policies and demonstrating a long-term commitment to the mental health of our employees. This is one of many awards that Jacobs has received relating to our mental health matters program as our network of trained Positive Mental Health Champions grows to over 1,000.
