Stop Work Authority

The Stop Work Authority (SWA) is a program designed to empower employees and contract workers with the responsibility, authority, and obligation to honorably stop work when a perceived unsafe condition or behavior may result in an unwanted event.

To build and reinforce a culture in which SWA and a questioning attitude are freely exercised and accepted, line supervisors are encouraged to positively recognize employee and contractor participation in the program. Click on the banner below to read more about Stop Work recognition.
