Employee Safety

Safety is one of our company’s core values – one that we never compromise. Ameren’s safety-first culture strives to limit the risk of unsafe events both at work and home.

Every Ameren co-worker is expected to be fully engaged and committed to protecting themselves and those around them. We’re proud that our employees consistently rank employee safety highest on our annual co-worker engagement survey.

Health and Safety Programs

Providing reliable energy to customers hinges on our ability to work safely every day. Safety is one of our company’s core values – one that we never compromise. Ameren co-workers follow comprehensive safety standards, which include mandatory health and safety training programs relevant to their job roles. In 2021, key safety initiatives included increasing co-worker engagement through co-worker to co-worker (c2c) interactions and injury prevention initiatives as well as building capabilities to identify hazards and mitigate risk by reinforcing the Hierarchy of Controls and utilizing behavior-based safety principles. Ameren also continued to operate safely through the COVID-19 pandemic by practicing safe social distancing and masking at operational sites and encouraging coworkers to work virtually as their jobs allow. These efforts enabled Ameren to continue to operate without interruption for our customers while also protecting our workforce.
