KEEPING EMPLOYEES SAFE TAKES NEW TURN AT GM TRUCK & BUS

 KEEPING EMPLOYEES SAFE TAKES NEW TURN AT GM TRUCK & BUS
 PONTIAC, Mich., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeping industrial employees


safe on the job has taken a new turn at General Motors Truck & Bus Group.
 Rather than waiting until tooling has been installed in a plant to think about worker safety, the Group's safety personnel work hand in hand with Truck & Bus industrial engineers and tooling vendors to plan a safe work environment.
 "One of the catch phrases in the auto industry today is upstream involvement -- bringing all interested parties together early in a project. But traditionally, that has meant product and production engineers," Bruce R. Cooper, health and safety administrator for Truck & Bus Group, explained.
 Adding employee-safety concerns to that equation can only result in fewer changes to the tooling later in the process, saving money for the company and possible injuries for employees, Cooper added.
 "We're getting smarter. Instead of policing a situation in our plants, we're helping to write specifications for equipment before it's even built," he concluded.
