Continuous Improvement Team #3 – Introduction
Introduction to the team and their mission
March 22, 2022
To: All Employees,
From: John Todd, President – Specialty Materials
I am pleased to recognize the new Continuous Improvement Team who will advance our ARC 100 safety journey.
The CI Team will meet in person on March 29-April 1, 2022 and will tackle the opportunities surrounding “Near Miss Reporting”. As part of the process, they will develop a measurable system that involves all levels of our organization, and then create a communication plan to keep everyone informed about pending changes and our individual involvement.
The activities from the new CI Team will support our efforts in building a culture of continuous safety improvement.
I have every confidence in this team’s ability to turn our opportunities into achievable actions and goal, while simultaneously changing “pain points” into areas of strength.
