On April 27th, FCA US LLC reported on it’s latest manufacturing milestone. This milestone is significant because the company now has the most manufacturing facilities certified in both Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001:2007 and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001:2011 out of any other North American automotive company. According to Greg Rose, Director – Environment, Health & Safety (EHS), FCA North America, “FCA US is proud to lead the automotive industry in North America with these health, safety and energy certifications. This is a significant achievement that would not have been possible without the continued support, dedication and hard work of our plant employees.”
With a focus on worker health and safety and energy management and conservation, these two certificates are a part of FCA’s commitment to the World Class Manufacturing methodology. Getting plants under the operating standards of both OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001 has been in the company’s Sustainability Plan since 2013. Thanks to the implementation of goals aimed at achieving ISO/OHSAS certification, FCA’s North American manufacturing facilities have been able to reduce injuries by 33 percent and energy consumption per vehicle by 8 percent since the program’s first year.
To keep both certification achievements, FCA’s US facilities will need to conduct annual audits and also be re-certified via external registrar every three years. The company now has teams in place at each facility with the job of upholding the standards that will keep the certifications in place.
