Why Choose this Training Course?

This course will reveal how the world's most successful companies manage multiple-shift and 24-hour operations to deliver world-class people and process performance. All industries are highly competitive so in order to compete successfully, 24-hour operations must continuously improve to achieve the highest possible standards at all times.

For a facility to operate safely and efficiently 24/7, it is necessary to apply shift working best practices. Multiple-shift operation poses a challenge because of the potential for fatigue and disconnects caused by the fact that the personnel are changing every few hours. This can result in a significantly increased risk of incidents and operational problems such as reduced throughput, poor communication and increased levels of waste.

This course will feature:

  • Why 24/7 operation needs multiple-shift working
  • How Shift working introduces extra challenges
  • Communication and leadership for shift working
  • Why shift working increases risk from fatigue and at changeover
  • Development of strategies to manage shift risks & issues & become a world-class 24/7 operation

 

What are the Goals?

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and appreciate the issues associated with 24/7 shift operation.
  • Identify strategies to deal with the issues.
  • Benchmark your performance against that of world-class facilities & explore alternative shift schedules.
  • Develop effective Shift Supervisors.
  • Create an Action Plan for continuous improvement back at work.

  • Plant/operations personnel and managers, shift supervisors and shift team leaders

  • Maintenance and Engineering Personnel
  • Training & Development Personnel
  • Personnel from Logistics or Network Support Teams
  • Personnel from Customer Service at any level
  • HR Personnel and those involved in Staff health and welfare at any level

 

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This includes a combination of lecture, discussion and group/individual activities. Delegates are encouraged to bring specific challenges and issues they are facing to the session for group discussion. In addition, we will discuss Best Practices currently used at participants' companies so that delegates will have the opportunity to learn from numerous sources.
