5 Signs Your Plant has a Communication Problem

Communication is crucial in production. Even in "normal" times, communication is a challenge and in a crisis it turns out to be even more difficult. "Face-to-face communication is always best. We rely more on informal, chance encounters than we may realize," says Andy Brazier, a risk consultant who specializes in human factors in process industries and process safety.


This eBook addresses the 5 signs of a communication problem in your operation:

- Day and night shifts are not fully aligned.

- Prescribed routine tasks are often not completed.

- Monthly production goals are consistently missed.

- Too many shifts are involved in troubleshooting process problems.

- There is constant mistrust between departments and teams.
