Is Your Manufacturing Facility a Safe Workplace? [Infographic]

In order to achieve supply chain optimization within your manufacturing facility, MEP wants to provide the resources to not only increase alignment, visibility, and collaboration, but also focus on creating a safe working environment.

It’s important to consider a risk management plan for a safer workplace environment, especially given the potential risks and statistics found in the infographic below, created by logistics company, Cerasis.




As part of our manufacturing engagements, risk management takes skill and strategy to devise an overall risk mitigation plan.

Objectives of the risk management program include:

  • Understanding the impact of risk events for which no risk management strategy exists
  • Recognizing the necessity of a risk management strategy
  • Creating a risk impact analysis
  • Learning how to estimate the financial impact of a potential risk event
  • Incorporating financial considerations within the Total Cost of Ownership model

We highly encourage Operations Managers, Financial Managers, Program Managers, and Supply Chain Managers to take part in the risk management plan in order to avoid the high costs associated with workplace injuries.

"MEP has put together an intelligent program that was well thought out and challenging for supply chain management team. They challenged our supply chain approach and current paradigm – forcing us to take a fresh look at what we do and how we do it. We are using the supply chain strategy tools that they provided as “take-aways” to change how we do things."
