Let’s Be Proactive on Safety


CBS News | Mine Deaths Spur Hearings, Legislation

I'm not an expert on mine safety. I don't know the first thing about mines. It is sad, however, that it has taken terrible tragedies in West Virginia to prompt calls to systemic safety improvements for the mines.

This isn't a new practice, the reactive approach to safety:

“It's unfortunate that every coal mine health and safety law on the books is written with the blood of coal miners (video),” Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.V., said.

The challenge for lean thinkers here. Find at least one potential safety hazzard at your site today and DO SOMETHING about it. Better yet, lead an F.M.E.A. effort to identify the most likely safety hazzards and prioritize fixes before somebody gets hurt or killed.
