Making the world safer is an important goal for many organizations around the world. That is why UL partners with a select group of organizations whose focus complements our mission. Working together, we have a more profound and lasting effect in achieving safer living and working environments.
By combining strength, capabilities and our international footprint we are able to realize more and make a more significant difference. From engaging children in safety programs at school to mentoring the next generation of robotics scientists, UL is proud of our mission partners and our collective ability to work together to advance a safer world.
In collaboration with Disney, UL developed the Safety Smart® Program – an initiative aimed at improving a child’s awareness and understanding of safety, health and environmental stewardship. Whether it’s in Disney Parks and Resorts, in classrooms, on a field trip to UL, online, or in your own home, UL’s Safety Smart® award-winning materials offer an engaging, empowering and edu-taining way to reach kids around the globe with life-critical messages.
UL serves as the safety strategic ally for FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and its FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC®) robotics program for high school students. UL’s contributions include 2,500 employee volunteer hours as safety advisers at more than 60 events across North America; event sponsorship and mentoring of local FIRST teams; judging at the FIRST regional and championship levels, including the judging of an annual safety animation award; and providing media and marketing support to FIRST. UL is committed to be the FIRST safety partner through 2015.
