Safety is a core value at American Water. It goes beyond a priority and is simply how we choose to do our work. Safety as a value is something that all employees have in common.

What Safety Means to Us

To us, defining what it means to be safe goes beyond measuring accident and injury rates, but instead focuses on lowering or reducing exposures in the workplace that can lead to injuries.  By continuously evaluating and acting on identified hazards and exposures, and more importantly reducing or eliminating them from our work environment, our employees will go home each night to their families, friends and loved ones and return the next day to their coworkers. Learn more.
