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.
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.
Our target is zero, so that every person who enters a GM facility leaves safe and unharmed.
This metric helps to identify hazards, eliminate risks and drive reporting for all incidents so that we can learn and assess areas for improvement.
