Health & Safety
Every employee has the right to go home safe at the end of each and every work day.
Walker invests in building and fostering the health, wellness and safety of its employees. We acknowledge not only their right to work in a safe and healthy environment, but that this attitude and belief starts at the very top. It filters through all levels, begins every meeting and has remained a core value of our company since the beginning.
RECOGNIZING DEDICATION TO HEALTH & SAFETY
We are proud of our superior safety culture. That’s why, each year, we recognize an employee who leads by example and personifies our commitment to a safe and healthy workplace. Employees are rewarded for participating in training sessions, sharing ideas for making improvements, and for implementing innovative safety ideas both in and out of the workplace.
We recognize that the personal health and wellness of our employees drives employee satisfaction, productivity, and is integral to our overall success.
HEALTHY EMPLOYEES ARE HAPPY EMPLOYEES
We encourage our employees to take care of themselves and their families. That’s why we continue to implement and evolve programs to support our overall health, safety and wellness goals:
- Roughly 10,000 hours spent on training each year to continually upgrade and maintain employee skills and knowledge
- Enhanced health and safety programs and implementation of the latest educational and training tools
- A comprehensive benefits program with access to an Employee and Family Assistance Program
- An annual subsidy employees can put towards wellness and fitness related activities to promote a healthy lifestyle
