07/01/2011


Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg., Inc. (TIEM), manufacturer of lift truck in the U.S., awarded the Occupational Excellence Achievement Award by the National Safety Council.

The Occupational Excellence Achievement Award is given to companies that have a lost time injury rate of less than 50 percent of companies in the same business classification. The National Safety Council tracks data in accordance with the federal OSHA calendar year standard. During the last calendar year, TIEM achieved a lost-time incident rate less than 7 percent of the average rate in the same business classification.

“Every associate, manager and executive at TIEM has safety as their top priority,” said TIEM’s Environmental, Health and Safety Manager Dixon Churchill. “When associates know their managers truly care for their health and safety, it creates an environment where everyone is focused on reaching the company’s business goals. With TIEM’s focus on safety, we see reduced absenteeism, lower turnover rates, higher productivity and better quality products.”

Toyota’s standard of manufacturing excellence, which emphasizes safety and quality, is reinforced daily with all associates and management teams. As part of the program, TIEM works to incorporate safety awareness and risk reduction into all plant activities associated with the manufacture of Toyota lift trucks and replacement parts for industrial lift trucks and tow tractors, along with the assembly of motor vehicle parts and accessories.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
