Press Release

February 17, 2015

AECOM announced today that it has joined the Campbell Institute as a Charter Member.


Grounded in the belief that safety, health and environmental (SH&E) management is at the core of business vitality and intrinsic to operational success, the Campbell Institute is the SH&E center of excellence at the U.S. National Safety Council (NSC).  As a member, AECOM joins a group of like-minded organizations that are SH&E leaders and serve as the core of the Campbell Institute. 

AECOM was chosen to join the Campbell Institute following a thorough review of its approach to, and superior performance in, SH&E by the institute’s partnership and steering committees.

“This is a tremendous opportunity that recognizes our SH&E best practices among top organizations that focus on integrating safety into their business models,” said AECOM Chief Safety Officer Andy Peters.  “Our journey towards a safer and more-sustainable world is accelerated through the thought leadership and knowledge sharing that this honorable organization ignites.”

Safety is a core value at AECOM, supported by the belief that non-compliance with safety standards creates a poor work environment that not only endangers the lives of employees, contractor employees and members of the public, but also damages a company’s reputation and undermines its financial performance. AECOM’s strong corporate commitment to safety provides a key advantage when pursuing work globally.

“We are proud to welcome AECOM, one of America’s largest companies serving clients around the globe, to the Campbell Institute,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the NSC. “As a Campbell Institute member, AECOM is taking its influence to the next level by joining with other world-class organizations to share SH&E experience, knowledge and best practices.”

As part of the NSC’s annual congress, Peters recently provided a keynote address as part of the institute’s Executive Forum, sharing his vision and experience enhancing AECOM’s safety culture and programs to advance its goal to achieve zero incidents in the workplace.

Through events, partnerships, research, as well as the sharing of knowledge and expertise, the Campbell Institute is a transformative force in SH&E leadership and is committed to creating a roadmap for all organizations striving to achieve safety excellence.
