Adapting new practices into your workplace to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is a challenge. Lean manufacturing tools like “Gemba Walks” and “Poka Yoke” can be used to quickly evaluate your operation, and identify the most effective ways to integrate specific practices.

Our upcoming webinar will feature Northwest Food Solutions’ Teri Danielson and Cheryl Collins, experts in lean manufacturing tools and evaluation. They’ll share techniques and answer questions to help your business operate safely during the COVID-19 crisis.
