IBM Global Procurement contractor safety

Promoting safety, health and environmental awareness among contractors working for IBM

Committed to contractor safety 

At IBM®, we believe safety, health and environmental awareness are fundamental components of every activity. It is IBM's policy that work performed by contractors does not compromise the well-being of IBM employees, customers, or visitors. As such, all contractor work is required to be in compliance with applicable regulatory and IBM requirements and the contract terms and conditions. IBM has developed guidance documents to familiarize contractors, subcontractors and their employees working at an IBM facility with important information about our safety and environmental policies. This guidance is not intended to be all inclusive but does include the topics which are important and are most frequently of concern and should be considered as minimum requirements supplementing the contractor's safety program. It is the responsibility of each contracting firm to make sure that its employees comply with the guidance in the applicable document.
