3 GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Elliot Core Values Logo

TARGET ZERO

A relentless focus on people, processes and performance is required to achieve Target ZERO:

  • We believe in clarity of targets and consistency in our strive for excellence
  • We believe all pursuits should be passed through a filter evaluating safety, risk and sustainability

HUMAN PERFORMANCE

Risk is mitigated or eliminated when we put barriers in place and learn lessons from leading and lagging indicators:

  • We believe in utilizing resources and findings responsibly
  • We believe in factual and transparent communication
  • We believe in pursuing constant improvements

SERVANT LEADERSHIP

Before one can lead, they must first serve. Servant Leadership is the model we expect our leaders to follow:

  • We believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect
  • We believe supervisors must hold themselves and those they lead to account
  • We believe in addressing every situation with professionalism and integrity

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

Elliot’s training on-and-off the job represents best in class learning and development.  DOL accredited apprenticeship programs and technical, driving and personnel development training are core forcal areas.

SIF PREVENTION

Elliot’s SIF(Significant Injury & Fatality) Prevention program focuses on the prevention of life changing, life altering or life ending events.  We focus on assessing risk, identifying what amplifies risk and selecting the proper controls to mitigate risk.  These concepts are engrained in our administrative and field tools and technology and reinforced with company-wide and local business unit SIF Prevention teams.
