Tobacco Free Worksites
BD's purpose is "advancing the world of health" and we are committed to providing a tobacco free work environment to support the health and vitality of our associates. Since 2011, BD has embraced the "Five Pillars" of the Gold Standard and is proud to provide a tobacco-free worksite for all US associates. As part of that commitment, we are excited to announce that in November 2016, we transitioned all 17 US CareFusion worksites to a tobacco-free work environment. (CareFusion was acquired by BD in March of 2015.)
