Through regular safety and risk education, we empower all employees to prioritize protection, practice diligence and make safe choices every day. Whether working in manufacturing, on a construction site or in the office, Wells implements industry-leading safety plans to ensure a safe working environment for every team member.

As a family organization, we believe in providing a supportive culture, so our commitment to safety extends beyond the work setting, providing a robust benefits plan with supports services for employee physical and mental health needs. Our commitment to employee health and well-being beyond the work setting reduces the risk of onsite injuries while supporting our culture.

As a result of hard work and constant practice, 2023 was the safest Wells year on record.

Our most important company value.

Out of all our company values, safe is the most fundamental and important and acts as the cornerstone of our business.
