Overview

At UL, we found that the strongest performing companies tend to institutionalize health and safety practices as part of their cultures. Building on this insight, we developed a unique and innovative approach to help all companies ingrain health and safety considerations into the routine ways their employees think and behave. Specifically, we help companies implement targeted processes and systems, instill early reporting and learning as key cultural components and provide tools that facilitate employee engagement and participation. Our approach arms companies with integrated processes and systems to embed culture in every activity.

UL has developed more than 1,000 Standards for Safety.

These are essential to public safety and confidence, reducing costs, improving quality, and marketing products and services. Millions of products and their components are tested to UL's rigorous safety standards with the result that consumers live in a safer environment than they would otherwise.
