Flowserve prioritizes the mental health and wellness of its people
Mental health can impact our life with our families, our job performance and even our overall physical health. Key factors to Flowserve’s approach to COVID-19 safety and management has included mental health and wellness. Now, we are proud to offer expanded resources for improving our associates’ mental health and overall well-being through Optum, a leading wellness provider.
We’re committed to safety habits at home and on site
Most unintentional injury-related deaths occur off the job, often when least expected, according to the U.S. National Safety Council. “With the best ideas, the right tools and everyone showing up to redefine what’s possible, no safety challenge will be too big for us to overcome, from the workplace to anyplace, said “Lorraine Martin, President and CEO at NSC. That’s why during Safety Week, Flowserve is building safety habits that extend beyond the workplace so our associates can stay safe no matter where they are.
Our culture empowers associates to embrace safety ownership
As a part of Safety Week, we are focusing on discussions and activities that can help us strengthen our safety culture, improve site performance and reach our goal of zero accidents. Continuously assessing the safety maturity of each of our sites will help us discover new ways to enhance overall safety. We encourage safety ownership of our work areas and work practices to ensure quality products are produced in the safest way possible. Learn more about Flowserve’s safety culture.
Safety Week acknowledges our ongoing focus on sustainability
Among our activities, Flowserve is also commemorating Earth Day 2021. Consistent with our sustainable development policy statement, our general environmental management goals are to increase energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, conserve water and eliminate waste in our operations, while providing superior products and services that advance environmental improvement.
