Journey to Zero is intended to embed a safety culture into every aspect of our business. Our aim? To achieve a level of safety excellence that results in an injury-free work site. Suncor wants all work processes and systems to be safe and the company demands employees and contractors take individual responsibility for safety.
As a result of this focus on safety, total recordable injury frequency among Suncor's employees was at its lowest in 2006, while our employee lost-time injury frequency significantly improved.
Suncor's large contractor community has also seen a decline in injuries since our Journey to Zero program began. Lost-time injury frequency for contractors has been reduced by more than half and total recordable injury frequency for contractors is down by more than 30% since 2002.
