Project Description

Project

  • Ergonomics processes were stale and there was little motivation from EHS team or end users to engage in solutions
  • EHS team felt overwhelmed with idea of risk scoring hundreds of tasks without a plan for solutions

An ergonomics kaizen event was planned to drive employee engagement and quick fix solutions for known high risk tasks.

Progress

  • A and B teams each participated in a daily 4- hour kaizen event over 3 days
  • Time was spent in classroom and Gemba to identify risk, score tasks, get employee feedback and test solutions
  • The last 2 hours of day 3 was a report out to management on fully developed projects for risk assessment, solutions, cost, time, resources and ROI
