Statutory Inspections

Situation

Failure of lifting shackle led to HSE Investigation that highlighted shortfalls in the recording of statutory inspection results

Task

We undertook a complete review of the company wide statutory inspection process using a lean six sigma/DMAIC process.

Action

During the value stream mapping activity we identified 26 failure modes, waste streams and open loops which were addressed in a future state design

Result

Performance levels were raised from 1 Sigma to 5 Sigma and clear evidence of compliance with H&S legislation achieved.
