We already have a Lean program in place. We want to implement an ergonomics program as we are experiencing several MSDs at a few of our locations. Does KED have experience in implementing ergonomics program that can co-exist with Lean?

KED has extensive experience with Lean and Ergonomics—as separate programs and as an integrated program.  We will work with you to understand your current Lean (Operational Excellence) program and MSDs issues and will work with your safety and Lean/operational leaders on designing the ergonomics program to fit with your current Lean systems.  It is our experience and recommendation that the ergonomics program initially be run alongside the Lean program and then over a 2-5 year period (time line depends on the organization), be integrated into the Lean program so ergonomics and Lean are thought of, embedded and analyzed in all operations.
