Focus on Safety


At Sysco and throughout our operating companies, providing a safe and productive work environment for our associates is a core value. We go beyond the basics to create a sustainable, better, safer workplace.

We place a high priority on addressing the root causes of workplace injuries, from revising the ergonomics of our truck cabs and loading ramps to encouraging safer behaviors such as proper lifting techniques and safe driving practices. Our employees receive extensive training and guidance and are expected to follow appropriate work practices.

Sysco has committed to partner with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) through its Voluntary Protection Program, which recognizes businesses and worksites demonstrating excellence in occupational safety and health. Sysco Dallas is the first site to receive the VPP “Star” designation from OSHA.
