SOPs - Their contribution to sustainably safe and profitable operations

Tue 04 Oct, 2022
Leeds Marriott Hotel, 4 Trevelyan Square, Leeds, UK

This course is being run in association with the Chemical Industries Association, you can view the details directly on their website.

Why attend?

Standard Operating Procedures should be the solid foundation upon which we build our  business activities, but only too frequently it is an unstable foundation.  Our procedures are often long winded and hard to read, we have poor adherence, people's interpretation can be very different, and so our processes become variable impacting on quality, cost, productivity, delivery and safety.

This course explores why this is, and suggests practical, pragmatic solutions that we can implement which will help secure the foundations of our business activities, hence improving quality, cost, productivity, delivery and safety.
