Xylem Recognizing Outstanding Safety Results

Jul 14, 2016 9:00 AM ET


In 2015, Xylem created enterprise-wide Safety Excellence Awards to recognize sites across all our businesses that achieved excellent safety performance. More than 200 sites received the Zero Incident Award for operating throughout 2015 with no injuries and no serious misses, and nearly 30 sites were recognized with the Most Improved Performance Award for improving their safety performance — as measured by injury frequency — by 50 percent or more. In addition, we presented our CEO Safety Excellence Award to one manufacturing site and one sales/service site that achieved exemplary safety results in 2015 and continually seek to improve safety in their operations. The sales/service winner was our Brisbane, Australia site, which had zero injuries in 2014 and 2015, and which implemented a “watch out” program to encourage employees to wear — and make sure their colleagues are wearing — proper personal protective equipment. The manufacturing winner was our pump production plant in in Calamba, Philippines that has operated four years without an injury and engages 100 percent of its workforce — including office personnel — in various safety activities such as find-it/fix-it, skill Olympics and daily stretching.
