With a remarkable Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) of 0.62, significantly lower than the industry norm, Bendix demonstrated its commitment to maintaining a safe working environment.

Key Highlights:

  • Bendix’s TCIR of 0.62: A notable improvement and far below the industry’s average.
  • Zero Recordable Injuries: Achieved at all four manufacturing facilities in Acuña, Mexico.
  • Certification for Safe Work Environments: Three locations in Acuña recognized by the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS).
  • Decades Without Injuries: The Montreal distribution center marks 20 years with no recordable injuries.

Bendix attributes its sustained safety success to a blend of leadership commitment and advanced safety processes. The company’s approach involves a comprehensive range of activities, from annual leadership safety sessions to the integration of Safety Share reminders in all meetings, aimed at ensuring the well-being of employees and visitors alike.
