Fluor's Strong HSE Culture

Fluor develops the health, safety and environmental (HSE) programs, processes and trainings to help our operations plan and execute work safely. But we know that this is not enough. To truly be world class at HSE requires a strong culture - a culture in which everyone takes ownership and accountability for their own personal safety and the safety of those around them.

Everyone – from craft workers to senior leaders – plays an important role in defining Fluor's HSE culture. By focusing on awareness, engagement and behavior, each individual can help strengthen Fluor's culture today and positively influence its results tomorrow.

Fluor's HSE Management System establishes basic requirements for all Fluor operations. It provides a common framework for how Fluor employees execute HSE at projects and offices and ensures global consistency in the application of Fluor's HSE practices. It is a critical part of the way Fluor does business.

The use of this integrated, consistent company-wide approach to HSE has provided the following benefits:

  • Competitive advantage to Clients through reliability and reduced risk
  • Efficiencies in the execution of work
  • Greater opportunities to provide solutions to HSE challenges.
  • Improved tracking that indicates the manner in which the company is managing its HSE impact

Life Critical Operations

One of the most important aspects of Fluor's HSE Management System is our Life Critical activity requirements.

Fluor defines Life Critical activities as those that pose the highest risk of serious injuries or fatalities in the construction industry. Consistent with our goal of eliminating injuries and illnesses in the workplace, Fluor benchmarked with other companies and industry groups and collected and analyzed internal best practices to develop the Life Critical initiative, which sharpens our focus on the precursors that can lead to serious injuries or fatalities. This initiative integrates important check points in Fluor's pre-job planning procedures and our auditing and inspection processes to ensure that hazards are being thoroughly identified and appropriately controlled.

HSE Star Award Program

Fluor's HSE Star Award Program is designed to recognize projects and offices for the effective application of Fluor's HSE Management System, implementation of HSE leading indicators, and outstanding HSE performance.
