CBRE is committed to providing a safe workplace and to enhancing the health and well-being of our employees. Our success in meeting this commitment depends on each of us doing his or her part. CBRE provides the resources for a robust health and safety program, complete with a formal policy, training and a cadre of specialists supporting client accounts and our own locations. However, we all play a role in minimizing the chances of on-the-job injuries by complying with the law, CBRE policy and common sense. For example, we require anyone driving for CBRE business to comply with all local driving laws (including those that require drivers and passengers to wear seatbelts) and to refrain from distracted driving (e.g., texting while driving).
If something occurs in our facility that might be harmful to our employees or the community, we openly communicate these situations and develop a plan to correct them effectively and quickly. We expect all employees to report any unsafe conditions, whether at our own workplace or one that we manage, and we will never retaliate against an employee for bringing any incident or condition to our attention. Therefore, if you become aware of any hazardous situations; injuries, regardless of how minor or severe; or threat to the safety or health of a colleague, client, vendor or other business partner, report it immediately to your supervisor or the appropriate personnel within your location.
Because health and safety is a priority, while at work we must remain free of the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or any other substance that may impair our ability to work safely and effectively. We recognize that it is customary to have alcoholic beverages at company functions. However, regardless of where these events are held, this SOBC and our other rules and policies regarding workplace conduct are in effect and will be enforced. Employees should be mindful that they are representing CBRE and our reputation at all times.
