Why it matters
Safety is one of Nutrien’s core values along with integrity, inclusion and results. Nothing is more important than the safety, health and wellness of our employees, our contractors and the communities we serve.
Our work on worker health and safety supports the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Safety and wellness are integrated into our operations through our Code of Conduct, Safety, Health and Environment (“SHE”) Policy, safety vision and strategy, and SHE Management System elements including global, operating segment and site standards. Our SHE Management System outlines the expectations of our global operations and provides tools to support a positive, proactive, risk-based structure for companywide execution of our safety strategy.
Nutrien’s safety vision is "Everyone Home Safe, Every Day." Achieving our safety vision is an ongoing journey, not a destination. It takes all of us showing up, caring and taking action, each and every day.
To achieve our vision, our safety strategy focuses on enhancing and integrating a Culture of Care across Nutrien by demonstrating deliberate, principled behaviors and actions.
Our Culture of Care demonstrates care for ourselves and each other, includes all levels of the organization from our Board of Directors to our individual sites, and extends beyond Nutrien to our communities, growers, contractors, industry members and other partners.
We integrate our Culture of Care through formal policies and systems, goal setting, and never settling for the status quo.
Safety and wellness are integrated into our operations through our Code of Conduct, SHE Policy, safety vision and strategy, and SHE Management System elements including global, operating segment and site standards. Our SHE Management System outlines the expectations of our global operations and provides tools to support a positive, proactive, risk-based structure for company-wide execution of our safety strategy. The system is a framework for consistent protection of employees, contractors, environment and assets. Its structure reflects the uniqueness of each site and operating segment by assessing risks and controls based on each specific workforce, operation and geography
Nutrien’s ESG goals and targets include several workplace health and safety targets that support our 2030 Commitments and drive progress toward the achievement of our safety vision. To maintain focus on each operating segment’s unique risks and needs, we set annual safety targets at the corporate level, that are combined with operating segment-specific safety goals, which cascade further to facilities, regions, divisions and sites depending on business structure. We set targets each year for both leading (proactive) and lagging (reactive) consolidated safety indicators, which are tied to executive compensation.
Though we recognize successes and performance, we can never stop focusing on safety. We can always be better and perform work safer as we evolve trust, accountability and responsibility for ourselves and others. We continue to enhance company-wide programs for common activities across Nutrien while evolving specific practices to target key safety risks unique to each of our operating segments.
