Driving Safety Standardization

Posted on October 18, 2015

By definition, standardization is the process of developing and implementing standards to help optimize process repeatability, quality, and most importantly safety. It’s an easy concept to understand but difficult to achieve, many factors contribute to making standardization a challenge. Strong leadership, although critical in driving standardization, cannot guarantee success. A systematic and planned approach is required. Three vehicles crucial to driving an effective standardization implementation include:

  • An internal auditing program;
  • A lean program; and
  • Effective communication.
