OE problem solving methodologies and techniques have historically been utilized in the manufacturing environment to identify defects and eliminate waste. Those same OE tools have proven effective at Coca-Cola to identify and eliminate 'safety defects' (unsafe behaviors, near misses, incidents) within an operational process. these concepts have also been used at Coca-Cola to address opportunities related to Safety Maturity and Culture.
Steven Jablon and Daniel Callahan from Coca-Cola will return to present, Coca-Cola Operational Excellence; A Safety Diagnostic Event on June 21. Their session will showcase a Safety Diagnostic approach using Coca-Cola's Operational Excellence Principles and methodologies to identify hazards, prioritize risk and reduce injuries. They will focus on reducing waste and risk associated with defects in the process, excessive motion/processing, transportation and improving culture and productivity.
