How does safety and quality work at Polaris?
Todd: Polaris reorganized the safety and quality organization in 2016 to create one centralized function responsible for guiding our safety and quality initiatives. The team collects insights and data from across the organization, from our post sales surveillance team and engineers, to our teams that are on the manufacturing line building the product. And while there is one team that shepherds the work, there is a sense of ownership in our safety commitment across the company. Any one, within any team, can and should speak up when they see something that doesn’t meet our standards, so we can take swift action to address the issue.
We are seeing the results from our efforts and will continue to enhance our processes to efficiently identify, monitor, fix, and, most importantly, prevent product issues.
