We make safe and sound work.*

*Safety doesn’t happen by accident. It’s something we all think about when making big decisions like buying a car or just doing everyday tasks like walking the dog at night. Each of us is constantly making decisions to ensure our own safety at home, on the road or on the job. 

At Eaton, we’re continually implementing safer processes to protect employees (yours and ours), educating our customers and partners on best practices and engineering solutions to create a safer world for everyone. Our electrical equipment helps to keep workers out of harm’s way. Our performance differentials keep drivers in control. Our circuit breakers and load centres protect homes around the world. Even on holiday, whether on a cruise ship or a plane, our products play an important part in making sure that you’re safe and sound. 

Because when it comes to safety, there’s no taking time off.

We’re continually engineering safer products and processes, to keep customers and employees out of harm’s way.

We make accident-free days work.*

*Whether in a corner office or a mine shaft, behind the wheel or at the checkout, business owners and operators shoulder the responsibility for providing a safe and secure environment. We understand the safety challenges businesses face—because we face them ourselves at sites all around the world. 

Our arc-resistant switchgear protects electrical workers from the catastrophic dangers of arc-flash events. Our explosion-proof switches and enclosures help to keep oil and gas operations safer. And our transmissions and locking differentials keep drivers and passengers safe in all types of vehicles, from fire engines to school buses to racing cars, and big rigs to tow trucks. No matter where you work, we are working to keep you safe.

Ultimately, it’s the networks of people that make things safer. People become safety mechanisms when they see something wrong and take action by reporting on it.

We make peace of mind work.*

*Your home is your sanctuary. Whether you live in a studio flat in the city centre or a single family home in a quaint neighbourhood, it takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work to make sure that your home—and all the people, pets and possessions in it—is safe and sound. 

Across the globe, we help households run smoothly. Our circuit breakers help ensure that power flows safely throughout your home. We help to keep clean water flowing by protecting waste-water treatment plants from power surges and power outages. And our Procision transmissions are trusted components in the buses that transport children to and from school, no matter the weather conditions. All so you can focus on living life to the fullest.

Our practices often get taken home by employees after they've left work. It makes me proud to hear stories about safety being practised beyond Eaton's doors.

We make off-the-clock work.*

*Whether you’re relaxing with a bit of food or drink, enjoying a concert or football match, or jetting off on an adventure, you have to trust that you’re in good hands along the way. And you are. 

Our filtration products ensure that food and drinks are delicious and contaminant free. We enable planes to take off, cruise and land safely with our navigational aids and engine components. And our life safety systems help arenas guide patrons to safety in the event of an emergency. Because when it comes to enjoying life, safety and peace of mind go hand in hand.

Whilst emergency lighting may be invisible in everyday life, it’s important that it’s there and functioning when it needs to be—to help you get to safety.

We make choosing zero work.*

*Safety is fundamental to our workplace. Throughout our operations, we’re continually improving our environment, health and safety performance and working towards a zero-incident safety culture.

Our ‘Choose Zero’ safety programme has been leading the way in keeping workers safe from harm. We have also reduced our Total Recordable Case Rate (TRCR) by 14 % and Days Away Case Rate (DACR) by 17 % compared to 2015.

At Eaton, safety isn’t just a goal. It’s a way of doing business, a shared responsibility and a commitment to principles and practices that drive our operations, day in and day out.

At work, at home & at play

Power is a fundamental part of our daily lives. That’s why we’re dedicated to improving people’s lives and the environment with power management technologies and services that are more safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable. Because that’s what really matters. And we are here to make sure it works.
