Tata Steel’s Steel Manufacturing Division holds 7th Exposition on ‘Elimination of Human-Machine Interface’, March 26-27, 2019
The Steel Manufacturing Division of Tata Steel organised the 7th Exposition on ‘Elimination of Human-Machine Interface’ which was inaugurated today by Mr Sudhansu Pathak, VP Steel Manufacturing, at the function held at the Cold Rolling Mill (CRM) Lawn. Mr Ravi Prakash, Chief-Cold Rolling Mill, Mr Nitesh Raj, Assistant Secretary, TWU and Mr Ramesh Shankar, Chief- Wire Rod Mill, along with officers from various departments were present on the occasion.
The exposition showcases 137 Kaizens from all the divisions of Tata Steel Jamshedpur, South East Asia, Tata Steel Kalinganagar, Tata Steel BSL, Steel processing centres and contract partners. Kaizen refers to the practice of continuously improving the way in which a company operates. It is a Japanese business philosophy of continuous improvement of working practices, personal efficiency, etc. It is the Sino-Japanese word for "improvement". In business, kaizen refers to activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers.
In an industrial environment, it is inevitable that there is a human- machine interface. The challenge is to ensure that the interface does not become the cause or source of accidents. There is also a need to ensure that horizontal transfer of good practices and deployment should happen across the organization and the learning from the past is used in the future and present times to improve workplace safety and awareness. To achieve this and in pursuit of the ‘Zero Harm workplace’ objective, the Steel Manufacturing Division organised the 7th Exposition on “Elimination of Human- Machine Interface”.
A handbook on displayed kaizens was released by the dignitaries during this occasion. Mr Pathak, appreciated the quality of kaizens and efforts of all the people involved in implementing them.
The exposition will remain open from 09:00AM-5:00PM on March 26-27, 2019.
