At Johnson Controls we are one team, and we value the health and well-being of every team member. Workplace safety is a pillar of our global Johnson Controls Operating System, aimed at a zero-injury culture. To achieve that, we apply industry-leading standards across our operations worldwide.
As of this year, 83 percent of Johnson Controls plants have achieved the targeted maturity level for the current phase of the Johnson Controls Manufacturing System, our path to being the most operationally capable organization in the world. That means each plant has instituted best practices and process improvements to enhance speed, agility, quality and productivity, making a measurable difference for our customers and our business.
In 2016 we completed the rollout of our new Environment Health and Safety Information System (EHSIS) platform. A common dashboard of key performance indicators supports our path to excellence through effective reporting and transparency. We continue to benchmark and share information on workplace health and safety through our participation in the National Safety Council and the Campbell Institute.
Nearly 12 million hours with no time lost to injury have been logged by the Tyco Security Products Bridgeland facility in Toronto, Canada—with no recordable injuries at all for the fiscal year ending September 2016. The site’s 662 employees specialize in electronic assembly and work three shifts, five days a week. Steps to improve health and safety have ranged from installing ergonomic material handling lifts in the plant to adding speed bumps and signage in the parking lot. A daily four-minute stretch break, onsite yoga classes, and opportunities to volunteer in an onsite urban garden further promote employees’ well-being and safety engagement.
