Vehicle Safety

GM Safety & Noncompliance Recalls*

(number of recalls)

GM Safety & Noncompliance Recalls*

(vehicle volume)

By building a culture of safety, we are able to identify potential quality and safety issues earlier. In addition to a decrease in the number of recalls, we are also seeing issues related to current models surface more quickly, thereby resulting in smaller population per recall. Half of the recalls initiated in 2017 involved vehicle populations of fewer than 10,000 vehicles.

Workplace Safety

Sentinel Events Closed on Time*

Percent of Sentinel Events (events with fatality potential) closed on time.

Sentinel Events Proactive*

Percent of Sentinel Events detected as Unsafe Acts/Conditions and that did not result in an incident.

Global Calls to Action Closed on Time*

Percent of Global Calls to Action (actions required globally in response to serious incidents) closed on time.

Lost Time Injury Rate*

(Number of lost work day incidents per 200,000 work hours)

This KPI focuses on those injuries that resulted in employees' losing days from work. This helps us identify areas and processes where we should center our focus to improve our safety controls.

Fatalities*

(A work-related incident resulting in death)

Our target is zero, so that every person who enters a GM facility leaves safe and unharmed.

Recordable Incident Rate*

(Number of incidents that resulted in injuries or illnesses that required medical treatment beyond simple first aid treatment per 200,000 work hours)

This metric helps to identify hazards, eliminate risks and drive reporting for all incidents so that we can learn and assess areas for improvement.
