USMWF VALUE STATEMENT:
The following values guide our every action. We are aware that we are judged by what we do, not what we say.
We pledge to meet or exceed these standards.
The foundation of every decision and contact we make should be ruled by our personal integrity. This exhibits our commitment to be honest and open.
This is for fellow members and anyone we interface with as contacts. We embrace individuality and have reverence for the opinions of others.
We hold ourselves to the highest level of performance. We honor innovation and teamwork. We never stop reaching for the greatest performance we are capable of attaining.
We take responsibility for our actions as individuals and USMWF members. We work together toward our goal of workplace safety, support one another and strive to never let our members or constituents down.
We recognize feeling empowered is crucial to carrying out both our individual activities and those of USMWF. We pledge to empower ourselves and others with knowledge and strength by providing support, compassion, understanding and guidance to the best of our abilities.
We recognize we are a unique community of individuals, bonded together through our experiences – experiences which have led to our commitment and dedication to promoting safe and healthy work environments.
Our solidarity is our experiences and they transcend all barriers of religion, ethnicity, politics, social status, gender, age, sexual preference, education, occupation, or any other perceived division. Our solidarity is our strength.
