Workplace Culture




I have now come to realise that my manufacturing knowledge is still intact and there is a huge amount of information still stored in my brain.
This information relates to setting up and maintaining good manufacturing practices that can be applied to any business.
Here I write down my thoughts and ideas.
The 3 basic principles of any business should be:-
                                                                 
Cleanliness
Tidiness and Orderliness
A Place
for everything and everything in its place.


It really is quite simple right?

Wrong!
The problem is you have to invoke the right attitude and culture into the workforce and it has to be driven and continually supported by senior management.
It is all fine and dandy to say do this and that then leave it to someone else to look after. It must be continually monitored and improved. 
Fix the problem not the blame.

Occupational Health and Safety, what a joke!
We all know that it only becomes important on two counts, when something happens to cause injury or interrupts productivity or when there is a government audit.
Those that try to push and encourage OHS are cast aside as trouble makers or just being a nuisance.

For anything to succeed we need the right attitude and environment. Unfortunately in this day and age everything is too much trouble or too difficult.
Rubbish! 
We are just too damn lazy, we just can't be bothered or we meet that stumbling block; Senior Management!
