At UPS, we’re serious about safety. This year we’re welcoming more than 1,600 building mechanics and porters from around the world into the inaugural class of Safe Work Heroes. These UPSers have all worked at least five years injury-free and now proudly wear a patch showing off that honor.
The new program specifically recognizes professionals from Buildings & Systems Engineering (BaSE) – the global team behind the scenes that keeps more than 60 million square feet of UPS facilities in tip-top shape.
Working around heavy machines and powerful tools means safety is vital. That’s why in the U.S. alone, we invest more than $260 million and operations employees participate in five million hours of safety training per year.
Watch the video to see how these UPSers earned their distinction.
