As the automotive industry continues to evolve, vehicles provide more features each year and even more electric-only cars emerge onto the scene. The companies that manufacture these vehicles must keep up-to-date with EHSQ compliance requirements as well as consumer demands. The assembly line experience, while also being a potential area for product defects, is major stage for work-related injury. According to EHS Today, “…[while] the process of assembling a car has become more technologically advanced, work in an auto plant remains a physically challenging job that carries a higher-than-normal risk of injury.” Workplace injury is an incredibly important issue to address for any company. This is especially true for the automotive industry. Vehicle manufacturing has double the workplace-related injury reports compared to the average. How can EHS software help solve these automotive industry challenges?
The Automotive Industry Challenge
Industry specific challenges include staying up to date on several certification needs, such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), and OHSAS 18001 & OSHA VPP certifications.
The EHS Software Solution
EHS software combats the increased risk of injury as well as the chances of defects and compliance issues. EHS software can alleviate the issues that affect the automotive assembly line. For instance, increasing communication between workers and management as well as strengthening the information collected in the field. This means a defect on the assembly line can be caught before the product is sent out to consumers. Therefore, preventing recalls and saving your company money.
