John Deere is committed to a safe workplace. That commitment has resulted in John Deere being regularly recognized as a leader in this area. But the commitment goes beyond the workplace. We are focused on each employee's health and welfare … on and off the job. Because our employees' overall health can impact performance, as well as the performance of their co-workers. So, through health assessments, training, and support, Deere looks to enhance the well-being of every employee.
Safety is everyone's responsibility. Part of everyone's job at John Deere. The difference at Deere is that we constantly work to reduce risk by concentrating on potential issues before someone gets hurt.
Health and wellness programs are staple ingredients in John Deere's activities day to day. Risk assessments and coaching help employees maintain, improve, and manage their personal health and work-life needs.
Compared to other equipment manufacturers, John Deere leads the way in workplace safety. And, surprisingly, we have injury rates below those common even in non-manufacturing sectors.
John Deere facilities regularly earn safety awards and other recognition.
In 2011, John Deere units in the United States, for example, earned 52 safety awards from the U.S. National Safety Council.
Included are 48 Deere units that earned the organization's Occupational Excellence Achievement Award, which recognizes units that have no fatalities and report injury and illness rates that are less than half the average of organizations whose employees do the same kind of work. The rates are calculated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics using 2010 safety performance figures.
Three units earned the National Safety Council Industry Leader Award: John Deere Waterloo (Iowa) Works, the North American Parts Distribution Center, Milan, Illinois, and Deere & Company World Headquarters in Moline, Illinois. The award recognizes the top 5% of recipients of the Occupational Excellence Achievement Award.
John Deere Turf Care, Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, earned the Safety Leadership Award for five consecutive years without an occupational injury or illness resulting in lost employee work days or death.
The National Safety Council is a nonprofit public service organization that works to educate and influence people to prevent accidental injury and death.
