This milestone speaks to continued vigilance and personal responsibility for everyone making safety their number one priority. Employees are involved in all aspects of safety and injury prevention – from hazard assessments to standard operating procedures. Working safely is an essential part of our job.”
Adherence to safety, not just in the workplace but throughout all facets of employees’ lives, is the number one priority throughout all of Aerojet’s business practices. The commitment extends from executive leadership to the craftspeople building Aerojet’s products and to those who maintain the company’s facilities throughout the United States.
