Who should attend
This course is designed for safety and health professionals, process-improvement specialists, industrial engineers, managers, and anyone with interest in safety and health or lean and process improvement.
About the course
Corporate environmental, health & safety (EHS) programs can be transformed from the traditional cost-center model to a value-generating contributor through the application of lean enterprise (continuous process improvement) methods. Value-Added Safety is an integrated problem solving approach that connects workplace hazards with non-value-added activities (wastes), promoting organizational collaboration and win-win scenarios across production and EHS functional areas. You will learn the principles of Value-Added Safety and gain applied understanding through interactive simulations and exercises to improve production and workplace safety outcomes.
What You Will Learn
- Value-Added Safety definition and meaning
- How to identity both workplace hazards and non-value-added activities (wastes)
- Methods to connect workplace hazards with lean wastes to common causes within a process
- Integrated approaches to improve both workplace safety and productivity
- How to use simulations to solve workplace safety and lean waste problems simultaneously
- The impacts that Value-Added Safety has on production and safety outcomes
How You Will Benefit
- Explore an integrated approach for improving both production processes and safety outcomes collaboratively.
- Participate in simulations to solve workplace safety and lean waste problems simultaneously.
- Address process and safety concurrently to promote greater benefits to your organization.
