Combining Lean and Safety: A Powerful 1-2 Punch Webinar

September 10, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:15 pm

When combined with Lean practices, a safe workplace also becomes a more productive workplace. 

Lean safety is a systematic approach to identifying and controlling the waste in processes/activities which could cause accidents or illnesses. Eight wastes are typically thought of in terms of production and quality processes. 

Relating safety to productivity can gain buy-in from management for ongoing support and resources needed to implement a Lean safety program. Join IMEC to explore how addressing the 8 Wastes of Lean can improve safety without sacrificing efficiency or effectiveness.

  • Defects
  • Overproduction
