Workforce Challenge

Northwest Pipe knew that by reducing waste, a company can improve employee safety, production output, production capacity, and employee morale but they needed help to make this happen. They took advantage of a County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board program, enrolling 12 employees, including both management and staff, in a training program focused on technical and safety operations.

Workforce Solution

Each participant was trained using Simple Organizational Excellence Methodologies to systematically and continuously improve their business operations by reducing waste and increasing operational efficiencies.

Outcomes & Benefits

According to Amy Byrnes, Northwest Pipe’s HR Manager of the Adelanto Facility, the training gave Northwest Pipe an effective foundation for their employees to improve job productivity and safety. “The training has had a concrete impact on overall safety in our workplace; a goal established by our top management for each individual employee. The technical knowledge employees received from the program has supported greater productivity, and that has helped us grow."
