Corporate Responsibility

Environmental, Health and Safety Policy

General Dynamics Land Systems is committed to protecting human health, natural resources and the environment while promoting and maintaining safe workplaces and practices for our employees, customers, suppliers, visitors and other stakeholders.

We all have a shared responsibility to identify activities that present significant environmental, health or safety (EHS) risk, and to take corrective/preventive action in an effort to eliminate potential environmental impacts and safety risks.

We will develop strategic initiatives and processes that support this commitment to continually improve, and at a minimum:

  • Frequently assess the potential environmental impacts and safety risks of operations, processes and products.
  • Implement proactive policies and procedures to comply with applicable environmental, health and safety legislation and regulations and other requirements to which the company subscribes.
  • Reduce work-related injuries and ill health.
  • Conserve natural resources.
  • Reduce the use of hazardous materials.
  • Reduce the generation of hazardous wastes, pollutants and by-products.
  • Recycle materials whenever possible.
  • Implement appropriate technologies for prevention of pollution and the control of pollutants that cannot be eliminated.
  • The foundation for our EHS program is training, participation and empowerment. We all share the responsibility for following established policies and procedures identifying and reporting potential EHS concerns, maintaining relevant documents, and knowing the emergency contacts, procedures, and evacuation plans at our respective facilities.

As a team, we are committed to a culture that protects the health and safety of each other and preserves the environment for future generations.
