The popular ’80s TV police drama “Hill Street Blues” featured an endearing desk sergeant giving a sincere reminder to “let’s be careful out there” at the end of each roll call. He wanted fellow officers to pay attention, watch out for themselves and others, and end the shift the same way they started: safe.
While we don’t have roll call every day at Kennametal where we can remind employees to be safe out there, we share the same mentality through our 100% Safe Philosophy.
What Does 100% Safe Represent?
100% Safe represents Kennametal’s commitment to provide a safe work environment for our employees every day. We extend that commitment of safety to our products and services, and those who use them.
A company’s commitment to safety speaks directly to its values.
At Kennametal, 100% Safe supports our mission to be an Employer of Choice. We recognize that our success depends on our employees, whose skills, knowledge, and expertise make them our most important asset. Kennametal’s comprehensive safety management tools including daily safety checklists, Safety Stars, and Risk Finders, engage our employees using a common approach to make safety part of daily routines.
Take this opportunity to drive “100% Safe” to others through your own actions. Be a positive influence and remind others to be careful, too.
