Safety & Health | Corporate Citizenship | Corning

Our vision is to deliver an injury-free workplace for every employee, contractor, and visitor

Organizational Expectations

Protecting Our People and Their Well-Being

We all need to be personally accountable for our safety and health and for the safety and well-being of those around us. This accountability begins with authentic leadership engagement. How we manage, the priorities we set, and the behaviors we exhibit all serve as guides for where we set the bar on safety and health. 

At Corning, we have three organizational expectations related to Safety & Health:

Systematic approach – the ability to understand, assess and control risks

Engaged leadership – accountable to deliver our safety vision

Interdependent culture – responsible for our personal and our colleagues’ safety

Safety Strategy

Corning's safety strategy consists of four inter-related elements:

  • Demonstrate compliance with standards and regulations
  • Identify, anticipate, and eliminate hazards to minimize risk
  • Develop interdependent culture
  • Identify, communicate, and implement leading practices

Management System

Our plan is that every facility develops and maintains a robust safety and health management system that aligns with the corporate framework. Corning has developed an occupational safety and health system that takes the best of external models, such as OSHA VPP and OHSAS 18001.

Several Corning facilities have achieved and maintained third-party recognition of their occupational safety and health management systems.
