Safety, Health, & Environmental Policies

Absolute Zero Program

A goal of ZERO harm

Your personal safety is our number one priority - and must be yours to ensure your success during your assignment.
Therefore, we believe ZERO is the most critical number regarding employee safety at Kelly Services.

Zero incidents, zero injuries, and zero harm.

These have been longstanding goals for Kelly. And our Absolute Zero™ program reflects our passion for safe behavior. We expect:

  • Our leaders to demonstrate that employee health and safety are our number one priority.
  • Our customers provide and continually foster a safe work environment.
  • And our employees act safely while looking out for their coworkers’ safety, as well.

We can attain zero!

It is possible. And thanks to the dedicated effort and a firm belief that safety is the highest priority, ZERO has already arrived at many customer locations.
