Come join us as the Puget Sound Human Factors Society tours one of Genie Industries’ AWP manufacturing plants. Genie Industries, is a division of Terex Corporation, a Fortune 500 company and the 3rd largest heavy construction equipment manufacturer. Genie is a world leader in the production of material lifts, portable aerial work platforms, scissor lifts, and self-propelled telescopic and articulated booms. Genie utilizes a version of the Toyota Production System and the event will consist of a tour of the production facility followed by an example and discussion of how ergonomics is applied to the continuous improvement (Kaizen) process. This is a great opportunity to benchmark and share best practices and improvement processes with fellow practitioners.
Please note: The following PPE is required within the plant: Safety glasses, hearing protection, and steel toe shoes. Please bring any PPE that you have available, otherwise any of the listed items can be provided for visitor use.
