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.
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.
Over the past 5 years, Leidos has achieved injury and illness rate performance well below the industry average (see comparison rates below for NACIS code 5417, Scientific Research and Development Services). The Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) “Work Injuries and Illnesses Statistics” are not yet available for 2021. The table below for Leidos NAICS 541 code, “Professional, Scientific and Technical Services,” shows that our total OSHA recordable injury and illness case rate is typically 20% of the peer group average rate for 2017 to 2020. The Leidos rate for cases involving days away from work due to injury or work-related illness is typically about 50% of the average BLS rate for the same period. Since the Leidos rates for these two important workplace safety measures are 50% and 60% lower, respectively for 2020 compared to 2019, similar or better Leidos health and safety performance is expected for 2020 relative to our peers.
Leidos has received more than 65 National Safety Council Awards for Occupational Excellence over the past 20 years.
