The foundational core of Cummins Inc. is its nearly 60,000 global employees, and employee health and well-being is the company’s top priority. Whether it is offering free COVID-19 vaccinations, or integrating collaborative robots into the company’s manufacturing operations to help reduce injury, Cummins continues to invest in its people.

Recently, Cummins joined the National Safety Council (NSC), America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, and more than a dozen of the nation’s leading employers in signing the MSD Pledge to address the most common workplace injury: musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

“Caring is a foundational value at Cummins, and the health and well-being of our employees is our top priority, said Michelle Garner-Janna, Executive Director-Corporate Supply Chain Management. “We are committed to finding new ways to ensure we are fostering a culture of safety, and are proud to join NSC and other organizations by taking this important step in mitigating MSDs at our company.”

The MSD Pledge aims to inspire a global movement across industries that improves workplace safety, reduces MSD risk and enhances the well-being of all workers. Specifically, Cummins is pledging to:

  • Reduce risks by analyzing the causes of MSD injuries across operations and investing in solutions and practices that reduce risks to workers.
  • Innovate and collaborate by leveraging best practices and sharing learnings and countermeasures to expand upon innovations to improve safety practices.
  • Build an organizational culture that values safety by promoting a workplace where safety excellence, transparency, and accurate reporting are equally valued, and where everyone, at every level of the organization, is accountable for the safety and health of workers.
  • Commit to a significant reduction of MSD injuries by creating safer outcomes for millions of workers worldwide and reducing MSD risk and subsequent injuries by 25% by 2025.
