Continuously Improve for Safety Excellence

Continuously Improve for Safety Excellence

Every process is created to achieve a desired result. For instance, if the goal is to produce a shiny red car, one process might be to make sure lug nuts are properly tightened so the wheels won't come loose as the car drives off the assembly line. Continuous improvement is about optimizing the process to better accomplish desired results. To build on our previous example, we could add to our process by torque-checking the lug nuts, marking checked parts, using a checklist for acceptance sign-offs, verifying checking and metrics for assurance and much more. Not surprisingly, companies that continuously improve production processes on an automotive assembly line can expect quality cars as a result. Progressive, successful companies understand all aspects of business should be built upon processes that can be continuously improved. This is precisely why progressive companies implement holistic, integrated systems to manage environment, health and safety systems, just like they would for any other aspects of the overall business. In this way, EHS benefits from continuously-improved, world-class quality results.
