WE LEARN RAPIDLY BY EXPERIMENTING FREQUENTLY. WE MAKE OUR EXPERIMENTS “SAFE TO FAIL” SO WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO CONDUCT MORE EXPERIMENTS. MAKE SAFETY A PREREQUISITE SAFETY IS BOTH A BASIC HUMAN NEED AND A KEY TO UNLOCKING HIGH PERFORMANCE. WE ACTIVELY MAKE SAFETY A PREREQUISITE BY ESTABLISHING SAFETY BEFORE ENGAGING IN ANY HAZARDOUS WORK. WE PROTECT PEOPLE’S TIME, INFORMATION, REPUTATION, MONEY, HEALTH AND RELATIONSHIPS. AND WE ENDEAVOR TO MAKE OUR COLLABORATIONS, PRODUCTS AND SERVICES RESILIENT AND SAFE.
