Safety at Honda is more than just a word, it is a way of life. It is a part of producing the safest, highest quality vehicles in the world.
That same commitment to safety can be found in our workplace where empowered associates are a key source of new ideas.
In manufacturing, there is a constant emphasis on safety at all stages of production. It begins early in the product design stage when engineers work closely with manufacturing associates to understand each area and adjust part designs to make new models safer to build. Ideas like larger openings in doors to assemble interior parts and magnets to hold overhead parts in place while they are fastened make associates' jobs better and safer.
This commitment to safety extends into each department where experts are responsible for evaluating the safety of each process. These trained associates analyze jobs and parts installation processes to make recommendations for improvements. Through their work, tools such as lift assists to help install parts and new low vibration tools have been installed throughout the manufacturing process.
Take a look at a few examples of how our Honda associate teams made their jobs easier while improving quality and efficiency.
