General Cable is the leader in the development, production and distribution of aluminum, copper and fiber-optic wire and cable products for energy, industrial, specialty and communications applications. Among General Cable’s manufacturing facilities, the Altoona, PA plant has distinguished itself as the world’s leading producer of OEM and aftermarket ignition wire sets, turning out over 200,000 sets a week. Assembling ignition wire sets is an oily job. Lubricant from the equipment drips onto the floor, creating slippery working conditions in work cells. So when associates voiced concerns about ergonomics and safety, supervisors teamed up with them to find solutions.
