As with any lean practice, successful work safety programs require management support and meaningful employee engagement. Safety and productivity increase when a systematic approach is used to avoid work-related injury. Modified applications of lean practices allow you to create a predictable plan of action in prevention, reporting and case management of injuries, providing both the worker and the employer the confidence that issues will be effectively resolved. A clearly defined, systematic approach to work safety also provides the pathway for on-going problem solving to continue, thus creating a sustainable work safety program.
Susan will discuss the following:
• Tools for actively involving staff in work safety
• Using A3 thinking to create a participatory approach and sense of ownership in safe work practices
• Achieving staff buy-in of changes recommended for safety with a 5 Why? approach
There will be an interactive Q/A breaks at the end of the webinar.
All participants will receive a discussion document via email.
