AECOM is “Getting to the heart of safety” in its third-annual safety report

LOS ANGELES (March 21, 2016) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that it has published its third-annual enterprise safety, health and environment (SH&E) report.

Titled “Getting to the heart of safety,” the report showcases the dedicated employees, innovative tools and notable projects that encompass AECOM’s industry-leading “Safety for Life” program. The report’s theme reflects the company’s Culture of Caring by highlighting employees’ heroic efforts, thought leadership and personal motivations for keeping safety at the forefront.

“The wellbeing of our employees, clients and stakeholders is at the core of all of our decisions, and is the driving force behind AECOM’s safety achievements,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are proud of our employees who remain committed to ensuring their colleagues return home safely at the end of each day.”

Some of AECOM’s fiscal year 2015 (FY15) highlights include the following:
— AECOM achieved a Total Recordable Injury Rate 7.5 percent lower than our target.
— AECOM Chairman and CEO Michael S. Burke was named to the U.S. National Safety Council’s 2015 list of “CEOs Who ‘Get It,’” which recognizes leaders who demonstrate a personal commitment to employee safety and health.
— Since 2010, AECOM’s Lost Workday Case Rate has reduced by an average of 11 percent* year over year.
— AECOM was selected as a Charter Member of the Campbell Institute following a thorough review of its approach to, and superior performance in, SH&E management.

“This report provides a snapshot of AECOM’s progress towards achieving goal zero — zero employee injuries, zero property damage and zero threats to the environment,” said Andrew Peters, AECOM senior vice president and chief safety officer. “As we strive toward becoming the SH&E leader in our industry, I look forward to continuing to work with our talented professionals around the world to advance our safety agenda.”

*To account for AECOM’s integration with legacy URS, this percentage is the average improvement from 2010 to 2015. 2010 to 2014 data reflects legacy AECOM operations; 2015 data reflects the combined company’s operations.
