Visteon set a new standard for health and safety performance in 2015. The company recorded its lowest-ever injury rates, and more than 90 percent of its facilities recorded zero lost-time accidents.

Visteon outperformed its target for lost-time case rate, achieving a rate of 0.03 – a greater than 50 percent improvement over 2014. This puts Visteon within the top 5 percent of all industries and makes it best-in-class for automotive/manufacturing companies. Visteon also recorded best-ever milestones for severity rate (1.37) and recordable injury rate (0.05) – those work-related injuries that result in medical treatment greater than first aid, or that result in restricted work or lost days. This strengthens Visteon’s position as a safety leader in the top percentile of all manufacturing companies regardless of industry. Every facility where Visteon has financial control (more than 50 percent ownership) is certified to the OHSAS 18001 safety standard.

For 2016, Visteon continues to champion aggressive safety targets for all of its facilities. All Visteon sites have zero lost-time accidents as a target, and the company is tracking all first-aid cases, performing analytics on those cases and prioritizing improvement actions. Visteon is committed to continuing to improve its status as an industry leader in safety regardless of business sector.
