Training at The Kerfoot Group
This week we’ve been doing lean white belt training in our Goole factories with Mikael Mareschal from the Avril Group’s EOS team (Excellent Operations & Strategy).
The training introduced the basic lean philosophy, and took a closer look at three fundamental tools SIM (short interval management), 5S (sort, set, sweep, standardise, sustain) and SOPs (standard operating procedures). Not only did we learn a lot but practical activities including 5S in our New Potter Grange and James Street Sites added real value by transforming two areas and introducing new standards.
Well done to Stuart Butler, Ian Walker, Justine Savage, Bradley Batten, Davie Walker, Krzysztof Pepel, Mandy Best, Mark Preval, Nick Rice, Clare Rowlands and Steve Savage who all took part in the one day training course and a big thank you to Mikael who provided this great opportunity for us to learn and participate.
