Northrop Grumman Is Committed to Ensuring Safety in the Workplace

A strong safety culture exists at Northrop Grumman, and it has been a central focus for generations. This commitment to workplace safety is apparent and integral in all we do, whether in the planning process, the designing process or production on the manufacturing floor. Our objective is to protect the safety and health of our employees, visitors and contractors.

In 2018, Northrop Grumman designated safety as one of seven company values:

“We work to protect the health and well-being of our employees and to provide our customers with high quality, reliable and safe products. We are committed to safe operations and are diligent in our safety practices and processes.”

Every employee has a voice in ensuring that they and their coworkers are not exposed to hazards in the workplace.

June is National Safety Month at Northrop Grumman

The National Safety Council (NSC) estimates that a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds. These injuries are preventable, and their impact on an employee’s quality of life can have many negative impacts. To recognize the importance of safety in all that we do, Northrop Grumman participated in the National Safety Council’s National Safety Month during the month of June.

Northrop Grumman Employees Share their Thoughts about Safety

Evidence of this commitment to safety is best demonstrated in the words of our employees. Everyone at Northrop Grumman is involved in maintaining safety – including (but not limited to) engineers, facility managers, manufacturing managers, process analysts, and technicians. Here, a few Northrop Grumman employees share what safety means to them.

“Safety is comprised of so much more than simply keeping people safe. When properly executed it brings value to a business, engages employees, promotes teamwork, boosts moral, implements process efficiencies, and reduces risk and overall costs. This is all while making the health and safety of our employees a highest priority.”

“Safety in the workplace means keeping myself and coworkers protected from harm and danger. Being safe is what you do and think. Avoid unsafe acts – if you see something unsafe or someone being unsafe – say something. It is everyone’s responsibility to make safety a part of the organizational culture.”

Kim, General Manufacturing Manager

“For me, safety means two things: first, that our employees can work in an environment where their well-being has been considered and constantly looked-after, and, second, that we have a well-managed and -designed system that responds immediately to any sort of emergency.”
