Waymo is the self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Building on software and sensor technology developed at Google, Waymo is now launching the world’s first fully self-driving transportation service that will take members of the public from A to B at the touch of a button.

As Waymo advances in improving the safety aspect of our technology, it’ll be super critical for our operations to maintain the highest standards for workplace and occupational safety.
