Chongqing Jianghua Rubber and Plastic Manufacturing Company Limited was able to make very substantial improvements in their work processes that not only boosted productivity but also greatly improved work safety.
In the first picture below, we see the cross cut saw that was used in the production process to trim the plastic moulding before training. Under the old process, workers used this tool on the production line to trim all of the parts. This process was slow and unsafe.
Following the SCORE Workplace Cooperation training approach, after SCORE Training the workers presented a suggestion to management to modify the production process. Management approved the suggestion and a new process was instituted along with a new cutting machine that is safer and much more productive. This is shown in the After picture below.
