Abstract:

To communicate the findings of the project Application of Industrial Engineering Techniques to Reduce Workers Compensation and Environmental Cost, three workshops were held. The first workshop was held at the Radisson Admiral Semmes Hotel in Mobile, AL October 8 9,1998. The second was held at the Radisson Hotel in Portland, ME, October 15 16,1998. The third was held at National Steel Shipbuilding Company in San Diego, CA, October 22 23, 1998. The workshops were scheduled in central locations throughout the country, to facilitate attendance by all of the major shipyards and repair facilities. These workshops were advertised through NSnet and an e-mail discussion group of more than 500 members. The advertising for these workshops was coordinated through the University of Michigan by Pamela Cohen. There were an additional 367 flyers mailed to members of the NSRP panels 3, 8, 9, 5 and 7 by the Project Engineer. The advertising and mailings occurred during the months of August and September to notify participants in a timely manner. A copy of the workshop announcement flyer is included in this report. The workshop was conducted by Freddie Hogan, Project Engineer, Brienn Woodds, Manager of Training and Development, Karen Wasson, Training and Development Department and Michelle Lee, Environmental Department. The workshop agenda and workshop material are included in this report. The workshops were well received by the attendees and provided a valuable opportunity to share the lessons learned on this project.
