We continuously strive to maintain a healthy and safe environment for all Whirlpool Corporation employees across all our global operations. With this goal in mind, we are integrating the WCM methodology into safety practices. Sites are audited semiannually to track progress and achievement against a set of manufacturing standards of which safety is the first pillar. The WCM Safety Pillar sets minimum expectations for investigation of all recordable and first-aid incidents, including standardized forms for incident investigation and a standard set of analytical tools to be used during incident investigations.
