 Ford Australia Customer Service Division Goes Further on Pedestrian Safety

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

MELBOURNE, Australia – Ford Australia has been going further to make sure its most valuable asset, it’s employees, are working in a safe environment.
 
At the Ford Customer Service Division (FCSD), the Parts Supply and Logistics team have been working together to drive excellence in Pedestrian and PMHV safety. The key focus has been the implementation of physical separation projects across warehouse operations.
 
In partnership with the key government agency (WorkSafe) and members of the workgroups, Health and Safety Representatives and the Safety Department, FCSD leadership re-designed the workstation layout and traffic movement and flow in the Shipping and Receiving departments.
 
“Lines on the floor and safety signage are no longer a good enough way to manage pedestrian safety,” said Andrew Newman, parts supply and logistics manager, FCSD.
 
Fixed barriers, flexible bollards and movement sensor interlocked gates with warning lights were installed to provide physical separation in pedestrian walkways and at crossing locations. These provide a strong visible impact and highlights to pedestrians and PMHV drivers to be cautious.
 
“Our people lead by example and have a relentless daily commitment to pedestrian and driver safety rules compliance and safe behaviour,” said Newman. “The investments made in both the facility and the teams have had a significant impact in our key safety metrics. SBI results and near miss reporting have improved and continue to have a positive impact on the safety culture here at FCSD.”
