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 environmental, health and safety (EH&S) and places a strong emphasis on EH&S activities both internally and on behalf of our clients. Internally, we emphasize direct management responsibility, corporate policies and directives, EH&S program implementation, employee training, and compliance assessments. Our corporate policies and procedures fully support compliance with all EH&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.
It is Leidos’ policy to operate in compliance with all environmental, health and safety rules and regulations, and to comply with our clients' policies and procedures. Leidos has developed and implemented an environmental, health and safety management system designed to address the diverse needs and requirements of a company that conducts field work, performs research and development, and manufactures products. The Leidos Corporate EH&S System conforms, but is not certified, to IS0 14001: 2015 and American National Standards Institute standard Z10 American National Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
Leidos is committed to conducting business in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, customers, business partners, community, neighbors, and the environment. The EH&S program is supported by the highest management level in the Company. The EH&S organization provides support for every Leidos location, and along with each line organization manager, is responsible for the general health and safety of employees and compliance with applicable policies, procedures, and regulations. In addition, Leidos’ Standards of Business Ethics and Conduct encourages reporting of any unsafe practices or procedures.
Leidos operates joint management-worker health and safety committees at multiple locations. At customer locations, Leidos also actively participates in EH&S committees, depending on the needs of our customers and the specific program requirements. Every Leidos employee has the responsibility and authority to stop work immediately, without fear of reprisal, when perceived that a situation places themselves, their coworkers, or the environment in danger, or when the work will result in an unacceptable product.
