Got A Question? Maybe We've Already Answered It.

What are other types of safety measures that can improve Operational Efficiency?

  • Install protective guardrails in your facility. Keeping powered industrial equipment like trucks and forklifts separated from pedestrians reduces the risk of injury to employees & damage to your facility. Having dedicated walking/driving areas that keep traffic moving, reducing stops and starts, and helps move people and product in the most efficient manner.
  • The use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) reduces risk of injuries, workers’ comp claims, lost time, lost productivity, and even lost raw material to waste.
  • Proper planning for Emergency Response. This includes everything from training on spill containment to what to do in the event of power outages, emergency evacuation procedures, and even properly signed first aid kits.
  • What drives Operational Efficiency?

  • A company that reviews its current operations in areas such as processes, policy & procedures, production levels, maturity or growth rate, etc. and becomes aware that changes need to be made based on current and/or future needs, market trends, or new technologies is more likely to look at ways to improve efficiency.
  • What are examples of Operational Efficiency (OE)?

  • Eliminate wasted time, wasted movement, wasted raw materials, and reduce risks & hazards that lead to lost employee time, increased workers comp claims, and negative returns in customer service actions.
  • What are signs of inefficient operations?

  • Ask yourself, "What is being wasted and/or costing us money? Sit back and watch how product and people move through your facility. Is that path the most efficient with the least amount of touches by employees and traveling the least amount of distance?
  • The failure to use proper ergonomic tools to help reduce injuries and speed up production. A facility could use lift tables, mobile pick carts, properly outfitted work stations, and other tools to keep the work at proper heights, positions, and secured in place. These tools can boost productivity while being safer.
  • How can safety measures affect Operational Efficiency?

  • Utilize a dedicated Safety Management Tool to perform regular audits of your facility safety. This will help identify risks and hazards and bring a solution, so employees are not injured.
  • How can employees affect Operational Efficiencies?

  • High morale and employee retention both effect Operational Efficiency. Employees that are happy will show up on-time and ready & willing to work. A high retention rate means that you’ll spend less time training, which will lead to increased productivity and quality.
  • What can I do to improve Operational Efficiency?

  • You can always find waste and a means to remove that waste, and a focus on employee safety and work comfort increases the employee satisfaction and performance
  • Why is operational efficiency important?

  • If your operations are not efficient, you could be wasting money and effort.
