Health amp; Safety (Hamp;S) Applications of Six Sigma
- April 3, 2001 at 4:00 am #27165
I am in EH&S area of of a large company & have recently become a Six Sigma Champion. We use 6-S extensively in manufacturing, but I’d like to apply it in the H&S area, probably starting with a pilot project. Would be interested in hearing about anybody’s experience in this area and/or anyone who might want to benchmark w/ us.0April 9, 2001 at 4:00 am #66295
I worked on a great project this summer with someone in a metal coating plant. They were trying to prevent Hex Chrome violations in their waste water treatment section of the plant. Not only did the project put SOP’s in place for a process which completely lacked them before, but they ended up with a very stable system not likely to ever produce violations again. The SOP’s resulted in tens of thousands of dollars in savings every month in chemicals and lime.
This may be more environmental in nature but seems to cross over into health and safety so I thought I’d share.0April 26, 2001 at 4:00 am #66441
