A 2010 America’s Safest Companies winner shares seven principles for performance excellence in manufacturing.

Lockheed Martin Missiles And Fire Control was named one of EHS Today’s America’s Safest Companies in 2010 for, among other reasons, making safety just as much a priority as quality and cost. Now, the global security and aerospace company offers seven principles for performance excellence in manufacturing.

“Handling and assembling explosives, machining of metal parts, working in and around complex machinery, operating wheeled and tracked military vehicles and research and development laboratory work are some examples of the complexity faced by [our] ESH department,” said Mike Self, senior manager of environment, safety and health after winning the America's Safest Companies award. “However, through innovative programs that engage employees, thorough procedures, job hazard analyses and job safety assessments and strong senior management support, [we have] been able to maintain incident rates, recordable rates and lost-work incident rates well below industry averages.”

The company's seven principles for performance excellence in manufacturing include leadership; work force focus; customer focus; strategic planning; measurement and analysis; operations and process management; and continuous improvement.
