New Assessment Tools Ensure A Commitment to Worker Safety Culture

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Convened by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the OpX Leadership Network’s new Worker Safety Readiness for the CPG Industry assessment tools and leadership guidelines ensure a worker safety culture for consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). 

The primary focus of the document is to provide worker safety readiness assessment tools in two key areas: commitment to a culture of worker safety and development of a worker safety plan. The free resource includes subject matter expertise from members of the OpX Leadership Network’s Worker Safety Solutions Group, as well as guidelines to evaluate electrical safety, ammonia safety and machine safeguarding.

In addition, Worker Safety Readiness for the CPG Industry assists CPGs and their OEMs and other suppliers in implementing best practices to mitigate conditional risks (equipment, line configuration, materials and environment) and behavioral risks (thinking, acting, choosing and deciding) related to worker safety.

“Leaders at all levels in CPG and OEM companies should be committed to developing and sustaining a culture of safety,” says Paul Schaum, COO, Pretzels, Inc. “The OpX Leadership Network’s Worker Safety Readiness for the CPG Industry provides clear steps to help achieve effective worker safety readiness.”

The OpX Leadership Network was founded in 2011 by PMMI to ensure CPG companies and OEMs are well-connected and well-prepared to solve common operational challenges, make smarter decisions and achieve operational excellence.

The Worker Safety assessment tool, as well as other operational solutions, are available for free download at www.opxleadershipnetwork.org.
