Lennox International is committed to a safe workplace. We continue 

to focus on initiatives to reduce injury frequency and severity. Our goal is 

to create an environment where every employee can return home safe 

every day.

In 2016 we again achieved tremendous improvements in our safety results. 

We continue to focus on reducing ergonomic injuries, improving machine 

safeguarding and enhancing forklift/pedestrian safety.  

We increased our efforts to prevent risks from entering our factories by 

focusing on product design and sourced components. Design engineers 

consider ergonomics in their product designs and work with our exter-

nal vendors to ensure packaging and material handling compliments our 

injury reduction goals.  

Increasing employee engagement remains a critical area of focus. By 

actively involving our employees in our safety and ergonomic programs, we 

continue to eliminate risks and move closer to our goal of every employee 

returning home safely every day.

Two million hours without a lost workday injury – Tifton, Georgia

Two million hours without a lost workday injury – U.S. Residential Distribution Centers

São José dos Campos, Brazil involves 

employees and their family members 

in pursuit of zero injuries.

Few companies I worked 

with have worked so hard 

in the pursuit of the safety 

of employees so we can do 

our duty and return to our 

families safely.
