New Holland Agriculture and Case IH facilities achieve incident-free milestone of three million work hours
CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI) announces that its New Holland Agriculture facility, located in its namesake New Holland, Pennsylvania, USA, and its Case IH facility in Fargo, North Dakota both recently achieved three million production hours without a lost time incident. The safety milestone is an example of the Company’s overall commitment to sustainability, as the safety and welfare of employees are key components of a sustainable operation.
Leaders at both of the facilities said adherence to the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) program contributed to the milestone. WCM is one of the global manufacturing industry’s highest standards for the integrated management of manufacturing plants and processes. It is a pillar-structured system based on continuous improvement, designed to eliminate waste and loss from the production process by identifying objectives such as zero injuries, zero defects, zero breakdowns and zero waste.
“Implementing a safety lab allows us to analyze, assess and apply preventative safety measures for employees on the production line,” Smith said. “We continuously review results from safety lab tests and make process changes which reduces incident severity.”
“Our people take pride in what they do and achieving the safety milestone is a result of collaborating as a team to keep the production line a safe place to work,” said Garg.
