There are a variety of regulatory mandates that enforce workplace health, safety, and security practices across any business. These inform our initiatives here at Cloudbyz by establishing a minimum standard for expected performance across our global organization. But we aspire to be world-class in every part of our business, especially when it comes to the safety and security of our employees and operations.

As such, we strive to produce a work environment for our people around the globe that is free of accidents, illness, and violence. We work to achieve this goal by engaging with our people through ongoing vigilance, prevention, and awareness.

As our business grows and evolves, we will continue to ensure workplace health, safety, and security while meeting our goals for operational productivity, efficiency, and customer service. Cloudbyz drives these efforts through communication and education around issues and opportunities in four specific areas:

Through continuous and cooperative efforts, Cloudbyz creates and nurtures a positive safety and security culture across the company.
