Each year, organizations worldwide lose billions of dollars because of safety issues. Safety Managers oversee existing safety protocols within a company. Their primary focus is ensuring that existing safety measures are followed. What is often overlooked is the continuous improvement of those safety protocols. Just as businesses change over time, so do their risks and hazards. If your safety action plan isn’t updated regularly, your company could fall out of regulatory compliance.
The primary focus of a Lean Six Sigma Red Belt is the continuous improvement of safety practices. Lean Six Sigma and Safety may seem to be two completely different concepts, but in reality, businesses can use Lean Six Sigma concepts to increase safety. The Lean methodology helps ensure a companies safety practices evolve with its growth.
This safety certification has been developed exclusively by the Management and Strategy Institute to test an individual’s knowledge of continuously improving safety programs. The program helps you distinguish between a safety manager and a Red Belt. You’ll learn about OSHA compliance for five common risk areas that affect any business: Fire, sound, chemical/electric, transport, machinery. As a Red Belt, you’ll learn to assess these risks and apply improvement processes like Lean, 5S, PDCA, 5 Why, and completing Gemba Walks. You’ll rank potential risks and failures using a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). Process safety management is a critical component of controlling hazardous chemicals and dangerous goods. You’ll review OSHA’s standard which establishes a comprehensive management strategy that integrates technologies, procedures, and management practices.
