Learn to positively impact the safety of others and lean forward through lean management techniques. Participate in group exercises that will help improve the safety programs in your facilities.


A common requirement to attain either world-class lean or world-class safety is the ongoing engagement of the workforce. It is this culture-changing employee engagement activity that 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 interest and buy-in can be difficult. Discover a different path to lean success—a safe path. By using some of the common tools in a lean thinker’s toolbox and focusing on safety instead of cycle time, you can easily start to build an understanding and acceptance of lean while improving safety.


For ten years, RBH Consulting has assisted companies focus on continuous improvement safety in order to build trust and move lean forward. www.roberthafey.com
