Innovation

USG has a rich history of innovation, with more than 3,300 active U.S. and international patents granted for our industry-leading products. Our culture of innovation – along with our commitment to all of our core values – drives us to constantly strive for new and better ways of serving our customers.

Safety

Safety has been our first priority, among our employees, families and communities, since 1902. We have developed and adhered to safety guidelines that exceed industry standards and regulations. In fact, 12 of our 34 U.S. manufacturing locations have applied and qualified for OSHA VPP Star status. To attain the Star designation, employees, management and OSHA work together to implement safety and health programs and processes that go beyond OSHA regulations to further protect employees and promote safe operations. Fewer than 2,500 worksites of the more than 8 million in the U.S. have received the VPP Star designation. In 2016, we earned the National Safety Council’s prestigious Robert W. Campbell Award for integrated environmental, health and safety management.
