One of Volvo Car Corporation´s core values is Environmental Care". Volvo Cars has a tradition of attention to the work environment and has over the years developed a working environment management system, an organizational strategy for the participation of everyone, a working environment policy, standards/specifications and methods for efficient practical performance. The Production ergonomics Project is an example of this. In order to achieve results in ergonomics one has to work comprehensively, which means working with the product, the process, the workplace, the individuals and the work organization.
