Ergonomics at Britax

Article at 11 April 2007

Australian supplier of children’s car safety products Britax has installed a new lean assembly system as part of an ongoing improvement plan looking at ways to improve operator ergonomics, production efficiency and working environment.

Britax says it has dramatically improved the working environment, ergonomics, operator efficiency and material flow and has achieved the company’s goals with improvements in both production efficiency and materials handling.

Forklift traffic has been reduced and significant space saving has been achieved throughout the processing areas setting a foundation for a culture of ongoing continuous improvement.
