Health & Safety

Westlake conducts its business in a responsible manner that protects the health and safety of its employees, the public and the environment in which we live.

Our Number One Priority

More than 30 years ago, the words of Westlake founder T.T. Chao - now displayed on a plaque at every Westlake facility around the world - established the company's culture of safety. He said: "We have put safety first, and it will remain our number one priority. No job can be so important or urgent that people cannot take the time to work safely. Life is precious and irreplaceable."

Drive to Zero: A Cultural Belief

Our Cultural Beliefs help employees understand how they should work together to live out our Core Values and achieve our goals.

Drive to Zero,  Westlake's first cultural belief, is built upon the principle, "I own your safety and mine." This cultural belief recognizes that safety is the company's number one priority, and demonstrates Westlake's ongoing commitment to the values on which it was founded.
