Hamilton Standard Electronic Manufacturing Center (HSEMC) uses many techniques to maintain a successful health and safety program. These efforts have favorable results in reducing lost time and injuries.
HSEMC’s safety and health program includes a formalized Pass to Medical which helps ensure that associates who are injured on the job receive prompt, early treatment. Supporting this endeavor is a part-time nurse and the security staff, all trained as emergency medical technicians. The active accident prevention program includes an accident investigation team that looks into the root cause of any accident, posts OSHA status charts, and department "days since last lost time accident" posters. Communication methods include weekly bulletins, area safety representatives, "concern" forms, announcements on the facility radio station, and regular articles in the newsletter. The facility also has a regular health and wellness program consisting of activities such as cholesterol screening, nutritional programs, and aerobics. Associates are also trained in ergonomics to help identify and correct problems.
