Developing Work Instructions | BridgeValley



Developing Work Instructions

You will rarely walk through a plant floor, warehouse, or office and find someone reading a book to execute their required daily tasks. This is mostly due to the fact that they have been trained and perform their responsibilities in the same manner they were trained. But what if they weren’t trained properly? What if they were taught short cuts and work a rounds instead of best practices? This workshop will show you how to develop properly formatted work instructions, using a combination of visual and text to ensure that best practices are adhered to on a regular basis. Some benefits to using work instructions include:

• Turn employee knowledge into a corporate asset

• Easier training of new operators

• Maintenance and improvement of quality

• Provision of a baseline for improvement activities.

• Reductions in cost

• Reductions in variability

• Reductions in waste

• Reductions in injuries and strain

Dates: TBA

Cost: $125
