A cause for concern…

Cyber-attacks have quickly become a growing concern for companies of all sizes and industries. Our appetite for technology and being “connected” is quickly outgrowing our ability to protect it, leaving many vulnerable without even realizing it.

Cybersecurity Facts:

• Small & medium-sized businesses are attacked about 4,000 times a day

• Manufacturing companies are consistently a top 5 target

• 60% of small companies are unable to sustain their business over 6 months after an attack

• $445 billion is lost annually to cybercrime and espionage across the entire world economy

• Cybercrimes are projected to exceed 6 trillion by 2022

• Department of Defense (DoD), General Services Administration (GSA), & NASA require compliance to cybersecurity standards

 

How will this workshop help?

If you are like many businesses, you may not know what is expected, or even how to get started. Join us for an event focused on understanding cybersecurity and how to best protect your company’s information. Attendees will learn:

• How to identify potential cyber-threats

• How to protect their employees and information from cyber-attacks

• What is required to be compliant with current cybersecurity standards

What is Lean Manufacturing?

In today’s ever-changing global economy, companies are faced with fierce competition, and have to continually find ways to remain competitive in their marketplace. The question is how does one improve product and customer value, while reducing cost?

Lean Manufacturing helps you to look at your operation in a manner that identifies and eliminates non-value added activities, more commonly known as WASTE!

Lean establishes a systematic approach to eliminating waste and creating flow throughout the whole company. It also helps you to develop and implement a long-term plan to streamline your operations for success by doing MORE with LESS!

 

How will this Workshop Help?

Throughout the day, you will learn about principles of Lean Manufacturing including:

o Operational Layout
o Visual Systems
o 5S & Workplace Organization
o Standardized Work
o Batch Size Reduction
o Teams
o Quality at the Source
o Point-of-Use Storage
o Quick Changeover
o Pull Systems/Kanbans
o Cellular Flow
o Total Productive Maintenance

You will first learn about these principles in a classroom, then you will apply the principles inside of a simulated factory through a series of exercises to help further understand the benefits of Lean Manufacturing.

Are you interested in learning more about safety and health in the workplace?

Year after year OSHA publishes the top ten most frequently cited violations. The fact that this list remains similar, reveals the core safety and health management programs that need to be a greater priority for your workplace.  Attendees will enjoy lunch during the seminar.

 

Workshop Description:

This lunch and learn workshop is intended to arm attendees with the information, knowledge, and skills needed to recognize, evaluate, and control a wide spectrum of occupational safety hazards.  The training covers a variety of general industry safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter and is based on OSHA’s top ten most frequently cited standards.  This training will emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA specific standards.
