Safety is our top priority, and important to our growth strategy. Each day in our operations we talk about understanding the risks in the workplace, the controls we have in place to reduce those risks and the changes and variations that occur every day that challenge us to have safe production. Managing those changes requires courage. Associates in a courageous culture step-up, speak-up, and act outside of what is comfortable until it becomes comfortable. When we have the courage to stop, question, and provide feedback — both positive and constructive — we create the fuel for sustaining a strong safety culture.
We are thankful to our highly-engaged team members who help each other stay safe and continue to deliver impressive safety milestones year after year. Below are just some of our recent safety milestones we’re proud to have achieved.

Celebrating Safety Achievements Throughout Fortune Brands
In addition to highlighting major safety achievements and recognitions, we recognize individual departments, shifts and teams for reaching memorable safety milestones and for their important contributions to creating and maintaining a culture of safety at Fortune Brands.
