Aiming for exemplary performance

It’s our responsibility as an employer to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and contractors. But it goes deeper than that at Devon. We care about our employees, their families and our communities, and we believe their safety and health is as integral to our success as operational excellence.

We prepare our people to work safely with comprehensive orientation and training, on-the-job guidance and tools, safety engagements, recognition and other resources. Employees and contractors are accountable for stopping at-risk work, immediately reporting incidents and near-miss events, and informing visitors of emergency alarms and evacuation plans. Devon uses proven best practices, technologies, tools and materials throughout our operations to safeguard the people working at our worksites and neighbors nearby.
