The Safe Path To Operational Success

While worker safety is often touted as a company’s first priority, more often than not, safety activity is driven by compliance to legislation rather than any safety improvement initiative. Lean takes a proactive approach — it is not contingent on legislation.

Based on 30 years of experience with successful implementation of continuous improvement, Robert Hafey focuses the power of Lean improvement on the universal topic of safety. In doing so, he shows how Lean and safety are linked; that the achievement of one is often dependent upon achievement of the other.

27-28 September 2017 / Meadow Foods, Chester

Day One 27th September

  • Day One Workshop

    09:00 – 17:00

    • Use the lessons from lean management practice to move people from compliance based behaviour to a fully engaged problem identification and solution focus;
    • Use role play safety investigation scenarios to experience how to focus more on the ‘what’ and ‘why’ rather than the ‘who’;
    • Use process mapping to understand areas for improvement;
    • Practice a coaching style of management to allow people to grow;

Day Two 28th September

  • Day Two - On Site Assessment Workshop

    08:30 – 15:30

    • Provide feedback and reflection to the management teams of the host plant;
    • Benchmarking guided tour around the plant and to gain insight into the host plants approaches and methods to lean manufacturing;
    • Conduct, with coaching, your own shop floor safety assessment visit where you observe and recommend safety improvement through lean from Bob Hafey;
    • Create the first steps to your own lean safety roadmap;
“What I appreciate about Bob’s methodology and approach is the required engagement of the workforce.  This is not an observation audit nor was it the typical compliance inspection.  This process leverages the dialog between the workers and the management driving safety improvements and eliminating waste in the process.”

Patrick Burger – GKN – USA

“The idea of recognizing safety risks as opportunities for lean improvement is unique. By making a work activity safer we also make the work more productive. I think most lean practitioners do the reverse – they look for waste in the production cycle, fix that, and then trust that the process improvement also makes the work safer. But having a worker-centric point of view makes the whole lean improvement idea more personal and grounded in ethics, which makes sense to me. ”

Mike Abuls – CGSchmidt – USA
