Safety 2020 Stand Down

North America: week of January 20

The Safety 2020 Stand Down is a mandatory all-employee meeting conducted by local management at each of our 180+ facilities worldwide. This event is held to reinforce and remind employees of the importance of safety. To meet the stand down requirements, please plan the following activities:

  • An all employee Safety 2020 stand down meeting conducted by local leadership using provided resources. Meeting should last approximately 45-60 minutes and be offered across all shifts.
  • One safety activity supporting the stand down lasting approximately 60 minutes to ½ day. Selection of the activity and its duration is at the discretion of local leadership. Activity suggestions are provided in the Safety Stand Down Quick Reference Guide. Please plan this activity to be held the week of the stand down.

Some locations will be visited by an EC member between January 20-31. Facilities with a scheduled EC visit should plan either the facility safety stand down or required safety activity to coincide with the EC visit.
