How We Manage

communities-safety-header

The safety and security of all employees is paramount to our success as a business, and a strategic imperative for our organization. Our initiatives to increase safety and health awareness focus on high risk areas and assisting sites and areas of work with the highest rates of injury. Our Target Zero initiative motivates employees to embrace a “zero accidents” mentality.

Our businesses use a standard internal online reporting tool to document and thoroughly investigate injuries and illnesses from start to finish. The tool helps us analyze root causes and take corrective actions to prevent recurrence. A separate “close call” reporting tool allows us to identify and correct hazards before they result in injury or damage.

We encourage all staff to follow best health practices at work. ErgoSuite, an interactive tool that allows employees to conduct self-assessments, schedule expert ergonomics evaluations and request equipment, is available at all workstations. An internal ergonomics website offers best practices, activities and industry resources, as well as a networking forum of Lockheed Martin ergonomics practitioners to share lessons learned. Hourly employees receive training in ergonomics principles, hazards recognition and correction/prevention with certified ergonomics coaches.

Our Energy, Environment, Safety & Health organization oversees our occupational health and safety performance at Lockheed Martin. Monthly performance is reported to the Chief Information Officer, who reports to the Chief Financial Officer. In 2012, we received a significant transportation Notice of Violation from the U.S. Department of Transportation which carried a $60,000 fine. See the Operations section for our definition of significant violations and more on the processes we follow.

Our Human Resources organization oversees Health and Wellness programming and resources. Wellness Centers at 26 Lockheed Martin locations throughout the U.S. provide employees with complimentary health services such as immunizations, chronic health condition counseling and health education. Our comprehensive health and wellness plan, LM Health Works provides full- and part-time employees with many tailored options to maximize positive choices for their health. Visit LMHealthWorks.
