2020 was a difficult year in many aspects but there are also positive things happening. One example of this is a safety award that Lesjöfors China received from the local government, Xinqiao in Changzhou.
The Xinqiao administration chose to award Lesjöfors China in strong competition with about 500 other companies. Only five companies were selected for the award Advanced Collectives of Safety Management. The prestigious award included both a certificate and a symbolic amount of money to Lesjöfors China and their safety administrator Shi Nian.
SAFETY FOCUS IN MANY ASPECTS
A safe and sound work environment has a high priority on the Lesjöfors groups’ agenda since many years. The background is to comply with both AON´s loss prevention standard and risk grading as well as with local demands to reduce injuries and accidents all over China.
Louis Tong, Operations Manager of Lesjöfors China comments on the companies dedicated safety focus:
“Before we started the work with AON, the 5S and safety work was on a low level but in past years we have worked effortlessly and focused which have brought constant improvements”.
DAILY SAFETY WALKS
Mikael Andersson, Managing Director of Lesjöfors China introduces more actions in the safety work:
“We have been working hard and focused with our work environment but we still have a way to go before we reach 100 per cent goal fulfilment. We have more tasks on the agenda and our next step will be to implement Gemba Walk Management where daily walks will increase the safety level even further and prevent unsafe acts and consequently prevent injuries.”
A COMPLETE SPRING RANGE IN CHINA
Lesjöfors China is supplying the complete Lesjöfors product range mainly to customers in China but they also support several international customers with competitive production set up and smart solutions in other parts of the world. Main customers are European owned companies with operations in China.
One of many key success factors throughout the years have been high technical competence in springs and stampings. Another great advantage is the strength of being a part of a larger manufacturing group with technical support in extra demanding areas and long-term satisfied customers.
