Environmental Health and Safety

We are united in protecting the health and safety of our employees, customers, communities, and the environment.

Leidos is a leader in the field of occupational health and safety (OH&S) and we place a strong emphasis on these activities, both internally and on behalf of our customers. Internally, we emphasize direct management responsibility, corporate policies and directives, OH&S program implementation, employee training, and compliance assessments. Our corporate policies and procedures fully support compliance with all OH&S regulations at work locations. We have a proactive compliance program of employee education, training, auditing, and reporting that, through employee awareness and integration into our business operations, improves our commitment to a safe and healthy work environment.

Leidos operates joint management-worker health and safety committees at several locations where it is required by state regulation, namely in Washington State. In addition, several Leidos locations in California have formal management committees that focus on OH&S. At customer locations, Leidos also actively participates in OH&S committees, depending on the needs of our customers and the specific program requirements. The overall percentage of our workforce represented in these types of committees is approximately one percent.

2015 EH&S Statistics - Injury and Illness Rates*

With the exception of unique exposures associated with a particular contract in 2010, which negatively affected the company's injury and illness rate performance, Leidos continues to achieve injury and illness rate performance well below the industry average. More aggressive management of the health and safety aspects associated with those contract exposures, which continued into 2011 and 2012, resulted in significant performance improvements in our 2011 and 2012 injury and illness rate performance.
