Each year during the month of June, Valvoline celebrates Safety Month. We take this time to encourage our employees to follow and adopt safe practices at work and home.
In 2018, we conducted a companywide “Safety Selfie” scontest where our employees took selfies showing an action or behavior they or their family takes to be safe. We had nearly 100 selfies submitted.
Please view the safety selfies below to learn various steps you can take to be safe at work, home or play.
