In honor of outstanding Safety, Health and Environment (SH&E) performance and contributions, Chief Safety Officer Andy Peters and SH&E leaders from around the world recently visited the Central Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) project site.
One of the largest projects supervised by AECOM in Hong Kong, the CWB project has received more than 60 awards from various Hong Kong government departments and industry organizations during the past three years.
AECOM is celebrating major safety milestones during Safety Week 2014 (April 28-May 2), through the use of innovative techniques and extensive safety initiatives around the globe.
Also, as part of AECOM’s renewed focus on safety, during 2013, the company implemented “Safety for Life,” a comprehensive internal program that drives employees to abide by high safety standards and integrate innovative techniques into every project.
This year, in honor of Earth Day, AECOM is framing the conversation in a context that allows everyone, not only those already committed to environmental issues, to see how this day affects their lives.
AECOM’s recently launched SlideShare presentation helps to share the messaging surrounding this new conversation and presents how the company is delivering infrastructure that will deliver the water, energy, food, mobility and protection communities need for a more livable urban environment.

Nature always wins. The Earth will experience seismic activity, volcanic activity, pandemics and cyclical changes in climate that will affect our lives in some way. There’s no disputing this, so how can we be ready to keep our families and loved ones safer and more resilient to the weather? How can we work with the knowledge we have on sea-level rise, the frequency of flooding and storms, global population growth, energy use, infrastructure status, water resources and food security?
Clean water is nearly impossible to find in many areas around the globe. Through pro-bono, philanthropic and charitable activities, AECOM and its employees have a long history of actively working to deliver, conserve and protect the water supplies in local communities lacking access to fresh water.
Examples include AECOM's work with the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust to address Kenya's water crisis, as well as an upcoming watershed cleanup effort in the United States.
