We will provide safe and healthy working conditions for our employees to prevent injuries and illnesses. All employees, at every level of the organization, are empowered and expected to take appropriate actions to maintain safe and healthy working conditions.
We will protect the environment by implementing our EHS management system, decreasing emissions, minimizing waste, preventing pollution and identifying recycling and reuse opportunities. We will use processes, practices, and materials that avoid, reduce, or control pollution to the greatest extent technologically and economically feasible.
We will comply with all applicable laws, regulations, permits, and other requirements, and will develop and employ more restrictive internal standards where necessary to conform to our environmental, health and safety expectations.
We will integrate risk management into all operations. Through the assessment of risk, the elimination of hazards or the implementation of effective controls, we will reduce the risk of injury or illness to our employees and the risk of harm to the environment.
Employee consultation and engagement is critical to the success of our operations. Management and employees (and worker’s EHS representatives where they exist) will work together to establish and review EHS objectives and targets that advance the goal of preventing all environmental, health and safety incidents, providing a safe and healthy workplace, and maintaining environmental integrity.
We commit to the continual improvement of our EHS management system, processes, environmental impacts, and the health and safety of our employees, customers, and the communities where we operate. All operations are routinely reviewed for opportunities to improve the way we do business.

We value the land we mine, and we do our best to be good stewards of the land. Creating a second harvest takes thoughtful planning and good relationships with our neighbors and the communities in which we work. We work hard to sustain good relationships not because we have to, but because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
At Levy Technical Laboratories, we understand that the materials and products we test don’t only exist in the vacuum of the laboratory. They have practical implications, make an impact on the environment, and are often the basis of our customer’s businesses. We have developed and implemented best practices throughout our labs and other facilities to ensure that we always live up to the highest environmental standards.
