Overview

As a DOE Voluntary Protection Program Star site, UCOR has an unwavering commitment to safety. We make safety a prerequisite to all we do. Our employees are empowered to stop work if they perceive unsafe conditions. Our goal every day is to make sure our employees return home at the end of the day in the same safe condition they arrived for work.

At the heart of our culture is our Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS), which integrates environment, safety, and health with waste minimization, pollution prevention, and quality assurance into all management and work practices throughout our organization.

Leadership

UCOR’s commitment to safety starts at top. Our leadership team is accountable for protecting the environment, safety, and health of every worker in the organization.

  • Safety Conscious Work Environment (SCWE): UCOR operates under SCWE policy statement showing the joint commitment between the Company and the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management to protect our workers, the public, and the environment.
  • President’s Accident Prevention Council (PAPC): PAPC is UCOR’s safety leadership council. The Council meets monthly to evaluate the overall health of our safety culture. The group also makes recommendations for improving safety initiatives.
  • Performance Objectives, Measures, and Commitments (POMCs): Leaders and managers track ongoing safety concerns against a dashboard of performance measurements known as POMCs that include injuries, hazard controls, training, and more. Monthly reports are created and reviewed on the status of each of the key measures.

Employee Involvement

Employee participation is essential to UCOR’s safety culture. We embrace a questioning attitude among our UCOR team members and actively encourage feedback and participation at all levels of the company. UCOR has instituted a number of programs and channels to keep our employees engaged in our safety culture. Several workforce Local Safety Improvement Teams represent and promote safety among various work organizations.
