Tork® productivity guide provides to using “kaizen” for competitive advantage


T


ork®, an Essity brand, is launching a new guide to “kaizen” to help businesses implement a culture of continuous improvement. Kaizen is the Japanese management theory that advocates all employees should engage in the improvement of a business.

Machine operators usually work closest to the zones where problems or unnecessary obstacles arise (in kaizen’s language, Muda, which means business/ process waste). They therefore play an integral part in preventing and improving productivity within the business. Recent research from Tork shows that 89% of machine operators believe that “continuing to improve our preventive maintenance routines is important in my company” and 87% agree that “preventive


maintenance reduces breakdowns of machines and lost production time”. Tork offers a wide collection of professional wiping cleaning products as part of the Tork Performance® system, to help optimise autonomous cleaning routines in industrial environments. The system includes both a variety of wipers/ cleaning cloths and dispensers that are robust and offer a range of unique mounting options which allows them to be placed within easy reach of the operator.
