As per a press release, in 2021, during the peak of the pandemic, Lippert set an annual target to reduce threats associated with high-risk jobs by 20%.
Through VelocityEHS Industrial Ergonomics, Lippert exceeded its target and has seen an annual risk score reduction of almost 50%.
With more than 14,000 team members working in over 90 manufacturing and distribution facilities globally, Lippert operates world-class operations driven by a culture of caring.
In 2021, the company implemented VelocityEHS Industrial Ergonomics at over 40 North American locations as part of an organization-wide commitment to increasing employee safety and engagement.
Through its powerful AI-driven technology and highly effective ActiveEHS® approach, VelocityEHS helped Lippert exceed its annual risk score reduction goal and fulfill its commitment to the health and safety of all team members.
“At Lippert, we live by our Core Values—one of which is ‘Caring About People,’” said Erick Click, Vice President EHS at Lippert.
“Our team is the heartbeat of our business, and as an organization, we’ve prioritized their continued health and safety. VelocityEHS has been a critical partner in the proactive measures taken to systematically improve our safety culture. We are proud of our results and will continue to demonstrate our commitment to our team and their families.”
Part of the innovative VelocityEHS Accelerate® Platform, the company’s all-in-one advanced Industrial Ergonomics solution combines online training, smart assessment tools, and powerful program management features to seamlessly deploy, monitor, and manage the industrial ergonomics process across one, hundreds, or even thousands of locations.
“Data shows that when ergonomics is done right, companies see significant results in improved employee well-being and enhanced business performance,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS.
“Establishing a formal ergonomics process is the best way to achieve that, and leveraging technology enables you to provide consistent training, a common method, tools, and metrics across your organization. That’s why more businesses of all sizes across every industry look to VelocityEHS to help them push the process upstream to reduce musculoskeletal disorder risk and achieve new levels of worker engagement and safety performance.”
