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 keep workers out of harm’s way. Our performance differentials keep drivers in control. Our circuit breakers and loadcenters protect homes around the world. Even on vacation, whether on a cruise ship or an airplane, our products play an important part in making sure 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 mine shaft, behind the wheel or the checkout counter, 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 in 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 keep oil and gas operations safer. And our transmissions and locking differentials keep drivers and passengers safe in all types of vehicles, from fire trucks to school buses to racecars, and big rigs to tow trucks. No matter where you work, we are working to keep you safe.

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

We make peace of mind work.*

*Your home is your sanctuary. Whether you live in a downtown studio apartment or a single family home in a quaint neighborhood, it takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work to make sure your home – and all the people, pets and possessions in it – are safe and sound. 

Across the globe, we help households run smoothly. Our circuit breakers help ensure power flows safely throughout homes. We help keep clean water flowing by protecting wastewater treatment plants from power surges and power outages. And our transmissions are trusted to safely transport families around town, 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 practiced beyond Eaton's doors.

Jessica, environmenatal, health and safety manager, Vehicle Group

We make off-the-clock work.*

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

Our filtration solutions ensure food and beverages are delicious and contaminant free. We enable planes to takeoff, 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.

While 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 toward a zero incident safety culture.

Our “Choose Zero” safety program has been leading the way in keeping workers safe from harm. In 2019 we reduced our Total Recordable Case Rate (TRCR) by 16% (0.54) and our Days Away Case Rate (DACR) by 4% (0.23) compared to 2018.  Our TRCR of 0.54 approaches our long-term goal of 0.50, which we define as a world-class safety rate. In both 2018 and 2019, Eaton achieved zero fatalities. Download our Sustainability Report to learn more.

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.
