Carlisle's Safety Incident Report Rate was already better than the industry standard, but in our continuous improvement culture, better wasn't good enough. In 2022, we reached a new safety record with an OSHA Incident Rate of .67, compared to the industry average of over 3. Path to Zero represents our commitment to creating the safest possible work environment and features the goal of zero accidents and zero injuries.

403 Occupational Health and Safety

403-1 Occupational health and safety management system

Carlisle's environmental, health, and safety management (EHS) systems provide an organized approach to EHS management. Carlisle's EHS management system is modeled on international and Occupational Safety and Health Administration ('OSHA') standards. The EHS management system itself is embedded within the Carlisle Operating System. COS is using complete near miss and incident reporting, strong employee engagement, and enhanced problem-solving processes to realize meaningful improvement in our safety results.

403-2 Hazard identification, risk assessment, and incident investigation

Every Carlisle location has a safety leader or primary point of contact. The site leadership team acts as the safety committee and meets regularly to review safety events, safety performance, consider and monitor safety improvement ideas, conduct safety inspections, coordinate with their business operations and safety leaders, and monitor changes in processes or procedures that could have safety implications. Time is specifically set aside for the purpose of observing safety behaviors, conditions, and practices throughout the facility. Site Leaders engage directly with people performing work within these areas to understand and ideate how to improve safety performance. Site Leaders are also expected to ensure completion of the Monthly EHS Conditions Self-Assessment for their facility. For the weekly and monthly conditions assessments, observations and improvement opportunities are tracked to resolution.

While we problem-solve on near-miss and actual incidents, we focus on leading indicators to drive proactive improvement. As part of their Standard Work, leaders perform visual sweeps to ensure the intended condition is maintained and abnormalities are corrected. Safety performance and actions plans are monitored through Visual Management.

Everyone is required to report any observed unsafe condition and near-miss, injury, and property damage events to Carlisle (and your primary employer, if applicable) so they can be investigated. Reporting these situations is important because a problem cannot be solved unless it is known to exist. Investigations focus on understanding what happened so proper corrective and preventive actions can be taken to avoid the same or similar situation in the future.

403-3 Occupational health services

Carlisle's EHS management system includes additional programs that are important to maintaining safety. These programs include topics related to the following areas:

Ergonomics, Bloodborne Pathogens

Mobile Equipment

Walking and Working Surfaces

Personal Protective Equipment

Cranes and Hoists, Ladders

Hazard Communications

Emergency Procedures

Management of Change

These programs provide supplemental awareness training, analysis tools, observation forms, and more, to support the EHS management system.

403-4 Worker participation, consultation, and communication on occupational health and safety

The Carlisle Operating System (COS) provides the mechanism, time, and resources necessary for every Carlisle employee to participate in EHS activities such as planning, performance evaluation, direct observation, and improvement. Timely access to EHS information is available to all. COS includes a means of assessing risk, reviewing daily performance, nonconformities, and a process to submit individual ideas for improvement.

The means through which any person can engage in the EHS management system include safety committees, participation in risk assessments, near-miss and incident reporting, problem solving and improvement project teams, kaizen, the Tiered Accountability process, and general COS implementation and on-going maturity progression.

Every Carlisle location has a safety leader or primary point of contact. Site leadership team acts as the safety committee and meets regularly to review safety events, safety performance, consider and monitor safety improvement ideas, conduct safety inspections, coordinate with their business operations and safety leaders, and monitor changes in processes or procedures that could have safety implications.

403-5 Worker training on occupational health and safety

Training content is developed and delivered by competent personnel or through a competent process, such as a learning management system. Carlisle employees receive both universal and specific certification training. All persons working for Carlisle receive awareness-level training through the Carlisle Path to Zero Safety Handbook. Topics include the Leadership Commitment Policy, near-miss and accident reporting, the relationship of COS and EHS, safe behaviors and the critical states of mind, Personal Protective Equipment, blood borne pathogens, hazard communications, cranes and hoists, ergonomics, ladder safety, Management of Change, and the six 'life critical' programs (Lock-Tag-Try, Confined Space Entry, Machine Guarding, Hot Work, Electrical Safety, and Fall Protection).

Training and learning effectiveness are evaluated through in-course tests and on-the-job evaluations for competency. Carlisle maintains training records for an amount of time deemed necessary by the business or by regulation. Carlisle also retains evidence of competency including education, training, qualifications, and/or other experience for all employees.

403-6 Promotion of worker health

Carlisle is committed to helping employees prevent illnesses and achieve wellness. Carlisle offers a wellness engagement to support employees physically, mentally, and emotionally through early intervention and maintenance of medical conditions. Carlisle also offers financial assistance by offering employee incentives to participate in the wellness programs. Employee benefits include health assessment, annual wellness exams, preventative screenings, support of personal health goals, and support of self-interest wellness activities.

403-7 Prevention and mitigation of occupational health and safety impacts directly linked by business relationships

Carlisle expects compliance from suppliers to our environmental, health, and safety systems and procedures. Carlisle evaluates and benchmarks supplier conformance using audits, risk assessment surveys, historical performances, and scorecard reviews. In cases of non-conformance, corrective action is taken to resolve issues that create negative occupational health and safety impacts

Carlisle has proposed near-term greenhouse gas reduction targets through the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi). Setting near-term targets is the first step to setting a long-term net-zero target with SBTi. The methods and reduction scenarios Carlisle has adopted in the near-term targets are aligned with the SBTi Net-Zero Standard. We continue our commitment to being a responsible environmental stakeholder, as we have for over 100 years, by delivering products that improve the energy efficiency of buildings, while reducing emissions from our manufacturing facilities and reducing the volume of construction materials in landfills. With Carlisle’s employees engaged and momentum growing, we are confident Carlisle can make a meaningful contribution to creating a more sustainable future for us all.

Carlisle continues to be a leader in the construction materials industry. We recognize that buildings are evolving, and their improved energy efficiency is pivotal to the world meeting our environmental goals. With many product and service innovations underway, Carlisle is positioned to address trends impacting the building space such as product circularity, energy conservation, localization, emerging material technologies, construction labor efficiency, evolving building use, technology proliferation, and job site transformation. In addition, COS and our culture of continuous improvement will allow deeper technology integration alongside gains in operational efficiency and product quality.

Roughly 11% of adult homeless Americans are U.S. military veterans. UMOM’s intensive case management and supportive services help veterans, and their families rebuild their lives. UMOM has served 185 veteran families over the past 18 months, providing support when families need it the most. With rental prices in Phoenix increasing 17% annually for the last three years, the aging veteran population with fixed incomes has become the largest demographic in need. UMOM’s innovative approach to addressing veteran homelessness places disabled veterans in affordable housing units and provides ongoing support to meet not just immediate needs, but needs throughout their lifespan. UMOM allows aging veterans to reclaim their dignity, restoring hope and ensuring our nation’s commitment to serving those who served us first. In support of the veterans that UMOM serves, Carlisle donated funds to supply furniture and home necessities to the affordable housing communities set up by UMOM in Phoenix. Carlisle is extremely pleased to extend our partnership with UMOM in providing support for those in need.


Founded by veterans, for veterans, Headstrong is one of the nation’s leading mental health care providers for military veterans and their family members.

The youth mental health crisis in Arizona is not going away on its own, which is why Carlisle has made a significant multi-year investment in Phoenix Children’s to support their efforts in addressing mental health among kids, teens, and their families in Arizona. This investment will help ensure that they have access to the care and services they need and will support Phoenix Children’s pilot program to address suicide prevention among young people in Arizona.
