Monday, Oct. 24 Location Code
8:00am-5:00pm Dallas A1, 1st floor MW/14

Use lean safety management techniques to engage your workforce in an improvement-focused program; show respect for people by improving the safety program in your facilities; discover how everyone will rally around safety as a top priority.


A common requirement to attain either world-class lean or world-class safety is the ongoing engagement of the workforce. It is this cultural 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, learn how to build an understanding and the acceptance of lean while improving safety.


RBH Consulting LLC assists businesses on their lean journey by helping them understand the safest and surest path to lean success is employee engagement.
