TWI, Kata and Standardized Work in Risk Management

Making frontline people central to the risk management solution.

When trained and managed properly, the frontline can actually be the first line of defense against organizational risks.

Employees are your organization’s most important asset, and at the same time, your biggest risk.

A recent McKinsey report stated that many organizations face crises when they neglect to recognize and manage frontline behaviors.

Leveraging our programs, including TWI, Kata and Standardized Work in risk management improves your frontline’s productivity, safety, morale and compliance. Then, they become an active part of the solution.

TWI Institute helps by:
  • Evaluating current skill sets and ones that require improvement or development
  • Addressing turnover by migrating behind-the-lines strategy to your frontline
  • Closing safety breaches and curtailing safety incidents
  • Developing a “leadership workforce” that recognizes problems and solves them
  • Assessing and addressing inherent risks in policies, premises and procedures
  • Reducing risks and grievances over health, safety and environmental issues

TWI Institute is a people business that coaches and trains. Our risk management training programs empower employees, support risk management strategies and generate results that create value in the workplace. When employees feel empowered, they work to actively solve problems instead of staying passive. This approach improves relationships and output of frontline supervisors and teams, and gives your organization an ideal foundation for Continuous Improvement, Lean, kaizen or Six Sigma initiatives.
