Safety Philosophy

Protecting our most valuable resource

In Kelly’s philosophy of safety, our employees are our most valuable resource—and no phase of business is more important than their personal safety. We believe that all accidents can be prevented and that safety is an integral part of everyone's job. Our customers, management and employees are responsible for demonstrating safety leadership, providing a safe work environment and promoting safety as a value.

Core safety values

Our core safety beliefs include:

  • All accidents are preventable
  • All injuries are preventable
  • Working safely is a condition of employment
  • All operating exposures can be safeguarded
  • Training employees to work safely is essential
  • Injury/Illness prevention has a direct impact on employee moral, productivity, company earnings and customer satisfaction
  • Recognizing safe behaviours fosters better understanding of our policies, philosophy and practices
To contribute to safety improvement across our industry, we share best practices and lessons learned among Kelly organizations and our customers. In addition, we have a dedicated staff of Certified Safety Professionals (CSP) and Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) to support our internal and external customers.
