Productivity

Productivity is recognized and rewarded in the workplace. Working fast however does not always equal working productively and efficiently. When we go to do a work task it is very important to plan out the time and resources it might take beforehand. Poor planning and inefficiency in the work process creates many problems that can hinder the process of working safely and productively.

 When more than one work task needs to be completed in a day and there is not adequate time or resources to complete the tasks, there is a breakdown in the workers’ day. It is important to know up front what time and resources are needed for a task. Before starting any task, a certain amount of planning is always required. The planning process can be informal, but especially for complex tasks, there should be a written document outlining the steps of the task (SOPs, Work Plan, etc.).

 After reviewing the steps of the task, the necessary training, personnel, equipment, permits (if needed), and time needed for the task can be determined. When all of this is determined up front and all of the necessary resources are made available for the work task ahead of time, everything can run efficiently. Having all the required resources also allows for workers to take the time to ensure the proper safeguards are in place during the task.

 While we can plan all we want, there will still be changes that we will have to account and adjust for. Things such as equipment breakdowns, employee absences, and weather are just a few common problems that could throw off the original for the task. However, taking the time to plan for the contingencies that can possibly arise during any task can mitigate that effects of changes encountered during any task.
