SLC 2014: There’s Nothing Top-Secret About Raytheon's Safety Best Practices [Photo Gallery]

Oct. 28, 2014
There’s plenty that Raytheon can’t tell you about its manufacturing facility near downtown Indianapolis. But the defense contractor is more than willing to talk about the strategies that help create a safe and healthy environment for the 1,100 workers at the site. The 1 million-square-foot facility is part of Raytheon’s Intelligence, Information and Services unit, which makes sophisticated software and electronic systems for military applications. The Indianapolis facility is a former U.S. Navy site that the city leases to Raytheon.

The heart of the site’s EHS program is a world-class employee-engagement system that empowers workers to make safety improvements and captures their ideas in a database shared by multiple Raytheon facilities.

Raytheon, a 2013 America’s Safest Companies selection, opened its doors to a small group of EHS managers who were in town for EHS Today’s Safety Leadership Conference. EHS Today Art Director Samantha Himes took these photos from the tour.
