Lean thinkers agree that culturally impacting employee engagement leads to long-term lean success. Too often lean has been used as a cost savings methodology by management, and as a result, gaining employee buy-in can be difficult. This workshop suggests a different path to lean success-a safe path. By using some of the common tools in a lean thinker's tool box and focusing on safety instead of cycle time, you can easily start to build an understanding and acceptance of lean while you improve safety in your facility. Day one of this workshop will be held in a classroom. On day two, attendees will be formed into safety kaizen teams and will work on the shop floor.
