Inteva Products Named One ofAmerica’s Safest Companies
EHS Today Recognizes 16 Honorees
TROY, Mich., Oct. 29, 2014 – Inteva Products is pleased to announce that it has been named one of 2014 America’s Safest Companies for its North American and South American-based facilities. Inteva is one of only two automotive companies among this year’s 16 honorees.
The annual list of safest companies is published by EHS Today magazine. This year’s awards were formally presented earlier this week in Indianapolis at the EHS Today Safety Leadership Conference.
The award recognizes companies that demonstrate “support from management and employee involvement; innovative solutions to safety challenges; injury and illness rates lower than the average for their industries; comprehensive training programs; evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process; good communication about the value of safety; and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process.”
Adam Bates, Inteva’s Global Director of EHS & Loss Prevention, credits Inteva’s “Safe Enough for Our Families” culture for the company’s exemplary safety record. “At Inteva, we don’t measure incidents by a count or a number. Incidents are measured by names and families impacted as a result of the incident. The title of the award is ’America’s Safest Companies’, but this is an award that I credit to our leadership and global team’s efforts.”
“Every aspect of what we do is required to be ‘safe enough for our families’,” he said, “and it’s this constant focus that has allowed us to achieve incident rates that are less than half the average rate within our industry.”
