LJV has a multicultural, worldwide philosophy that puts Health, Safety and Environment (HSE), first and foremost in the minds of our employees.
Our worldwide commitment to health, safety, and the environment runs deep. Protecting our world and workplace simply is a matter of respect, and a value shared among those who wear the LJV name. We understand the culture of safety and environmental responsibility must be built upon a very real foundation – one of communication, high expectations, accountability, achievement, and continuous challenge for improvement. LJV provides employees with the processes, facilities, standards, training, discipline, and work culture designed to
• A safe work environment for our employees and the communities in which we operate
• Safe products for our customers
• Environmental protection through responsible resource and waste management
• Protection of stakeholder assets
LJV strongly promotes a healthy workforce. Across the global LJV network, programs are implemented to encourage health consciousness and wellness. Some of these include regular health awareness presentations, immunization programs, worksite wellness challenges, medical incentives, fitness facilities, health screenings, and after-hours sporting and recreational events.
At LJV, a safe and healthy working environment is more than a matter of policy; it’s a matter of practice. In addition to safety programs outlined in the HSE Management System, LJV’s business units and facilities develop their own safety management initiatives geared toward local employees and work practices. These include HSE site committees, regular safety training sessions, employee HSE manuals, HSE compliance audits, new employee orientation programs, and incident investigation policies.
Integral to LJV’s dedication to operational excellence is our commitment to environmental sustainability. We take our role as a responsible corporate citizen seriously, and are committed to a work environment that exists in harmony with the natural environment. In addition to fully complying with all local laws, our business units also develop and maintain a number of effective environmental protection programs. These include strict waste disposal policies, waste reduction and recycling programs, and regular air and water monitoring.
