Safety Optimization Using Lean Techniques
Course Description
Lean safety is an approach that integrates principles from both lean management and occupational health and safety to create a workplace environment that is efficient, productive, and safe. The concept originates from the lean methodology, which is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources in any aspect other than the direct labour for the product to be wasteful and, thus, a target for elimination. In the context of lean safety, the focus is on eliminating waste, optimizing processes, and improving overall efficiency while maintaining a strong commitment to safety and risk reduction.
