  • PM-B: Health and Safety Management System Execution Using Lean Methodology

    Craig Frederiksen - Safety Manager - John Deere Dubuque Works - Dubuque, IA
    Creating and/or executing a HSMS has no shortage of complexity. Success requires engagement from multiple resources across various functional areas within an organization. Lean tools and methodology can help provide a framework to create a vision and drive action in support of injury reduction, compliance improvement, cost management and cultural enhancement initiatives. This session will focus on using the strategic planning model of Hoshin Kanri to reduce complexity and increase visibility/accountability in a HSMS. Additionally, there will be an introduction to complementary tools such as leader standard work, A3 problem solving, Gemba, and EMDS (enterprise management development system). Finally, there will be real examples leveraged demonstrating how these lean principles can integrate into an existing HSMS or help create one.


Session selection required at time of registration.  CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED.
