We continuously seek out information from your industries and leverage insights to enable a safe and compliant workforce.
What’s the best way to understand the complex occupational health and safety challenges of any given industry? Employ people that have actually worked in them. That’s why so many professional health and safety people have joined the 3M team from a position within their industry. What’s more, we’re local to you, because we’re located all around the world.
Our people have faced many of the same challenges you’ve faced, so we are able to bring our knowledge of similar challenges to our interactions—from our education and training to the design of our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Because we have such a breadth of experience and regularly work with customers across so many industries, we are able to offer critical insights and best practices. We can take these learnings and relay them to you to help you apply these ideas to your health and safety program and policies, so you can help better protect your workforce.
We take pride in having a team that constantly learns from our customers’ many real-world experiences—and then seeks to apply that knowledge to help employers across a range of other industries. This experience has the potential to help companies uncover new ways to protect workers’ health and safety.
Whether it is helping our customer in a shipyard evaluate and control a variety of potential eye injury hazards, or exploring similar issues in the rail industry, we feel that our real-world experience helps give customers more learnings and ideas to help them find acceptable solutions for their health and safety challenges.
Part of the science of safety means leveraging the insights we learn in your field, as well as those we've gleaned from others, to help you achieve a safe and compliant workforce.
