Navistar says manufacturing changes reduced injuries
Tuesday, December 18, 2018
Navistar’s improvements at the company’s Springfield plant included investments to improve ergonomics and prevent injuries on the manufacturing floor, company officials said in a recent post on a company website.
That included improvements to the strap lock installation and cutting process, which company officials said had caused a high number of hand injuries. The News-Sun reported earlier this year Navistar has invested millions in new equipment in Springfield over the past several years to revamp the interior of the facility and streamline its manufacturing processes.
