In addition to his regular duties, Colorado Springs, CO, Cheyenne Mountain Station Custodian George Renault tours his office regularly, carefully scrutinizing the workspace for safety concerns. Recently, he performed a gemba walk along with City Carrier and Safety Captain Virginia Ortiz and Customer Service Program Analyst Doreen Husner.

A gemba walk an in observation-based walk of a workspace designed to identify improvement opportunities. The process is not only designed to enhance efficiencies, it also finds correctable hazards that can improve safety when remedied.

As the gemba team located safety concerns, they acted to correct the issues. Following the walk, Oritz gave a stand-up talk to all facility employees, asking them to keep up the cleanliness of the unit to keep everyone safe.

“George and Virginia did an exceptional job,” said Husner. “Thanks to their efforts, the office is a safer, cleaner place to work.”
