Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters and Made Safe
Keeping our teams safe while improving our processes
Organizations are legislated to have a safety program, but not a process improvement program. Creating an environment where safety is the culture is tough. Engaging employees to look for waste in processes is even more difficult. In this workshop you will learn how to build a safe work culture that also looks for improvement opportunities every day, everywhere; how to drive ownership back to employees for safe work habits and improvement activities; how to utilize safety walks and Gemba walks to engage employees in discussions on improvement activities; how to add ergonomics discussions into value stream mapping and how to leverage basic LEAN tools such as 5S and poka yoke (mistake proofing).
