While worker safety is often touted as a company’s first priority, more often than not, safety activity is driven by compliance to legislation rather than any safety improvement initiative. Lean takes a proactive approach – it is not contingent on legislation. A serious Lean effort will tear apart an old inefficient entitlement-riddled culture and build it into something effective. Lean Safety: Transforming your Safety Culture with Lean Management takes lessons learned from Lean and applies them to the building of a world-class safety-first organization. Based on 30 years of experience with successful implementation of continuous improvement, Robert Hafey focuses the power of Lean improvement on the universal topic of safety. In doing so, he shows how Lean and safety are linked; that the achievement of one is often dependent upon achievement of the other. In this book, written for managers and executives as well as workers on the line, Hafey: Challenges each stakeholder to think proactively and accept individual responsibility for safety Emphasizes that the building of a top safety program requires the building of a world-class safety culture Demonstrates how basic Lean tools are as applicable to safety as they are to Lean, such as the A3 problem-solving process and the facilitated kaizen blitz Removes fear from the accident investigation process so that root causes are addressed rather than hidden Establishes standards and metrics for safety management that are clearly definable and measurable Any lasting improvement must become both institutionalized and perpetually capable of adaptation. World class safety is not about writing correct rules, but more about righting the culture responsible for the well-being of its stakeholders. Listen to what Robert Hafey has to say about Lean Safety.

Illustrating the importance of employee engagement and culture change, the book provides you with the tools to engage managers, employees, and hourly staff in the continuous improvement of safety. The concepts covered will allow you to empower employees to make a difference in their safety culture rather than simply complying with safety rules.

What is Lean? A lean culture empowers your employees, removes unnecessary waste, and focuses on the customer. Lean is a way of delivering what your customer needs or wants at the lowest cost and in a timely and efficient manner. Lean is not something that sits apart on a shelf, away from your other business processes and is only used when needed. In contrast, it is your organizations "way of life." It should be embedded across all of your processes. It's a way of looking at your business processes through an "improvement lens" and eliminating waste to ensure the customer is getting the most value. This ensures the customer gets what they ask for, when they need it, at the lowest cost. Lean is focused on delivering customer expectations. Lean can be applied to virtually every known process whether it be manufacturing, safety, health care or even personal development and personal relationships. Contents: The Lean Office.
