Boeing is committed to fostering a safe and healthy workplace for its employees. Through the rigorous application of preventative and corrective measures, the company has reduced lost work days from injuries sustained on the job and has received numerous awards recognizing its commitment to safety and health in the workplace.
Boeing seeks to continually improve its processes and facilities for all employees, from the incorporation of ergonomics improvements that make building our products more comfortable to technology research and investments that make our workplaces safer.
The company has set an aggressive five-year target to further improve its workplace safety performance 25 percent by 2013. To help reach that goal, Boeing will adopt a single, enterprisewide safety management system at its major manufacturing facilities that conforms to OHSAS 18001, an internationally recognized occupational health and safety management system standard.
