Industrial work environment
Deficiencies in the work environment can have serious consequences for the individual. In the workplace these deficiencies give rise to increased costs as a result of absence due to illness, rehabilitation, personnel turnover and production stoppages, damage to equipment, poor quality and underutilised potential. An investment in a good work environment has a positive effect on morale and fosters greater employee commitment. It is also an important competitive advantage, since it attracts young people to jobs in industry.
RISE adopts a holistic approach to industrial work environment by combining improvements in a material or manufacturing process with improvements in the work environment. This may refer to the safety-related aspects of a manufacturing process such as casting, ergonomics with respect to assembly work, or how work at a specific machine affects job tasks/content, sound and vibrations. We employ several working methods and tools and, by following the work flow, we can improve individual job tasks as well as entire production systems.
