Six sigma black belt training at WHS

Lean 6 Sigma plays an important role in the WHS Continuous Improvement Programme as it helps us to make improvements and scope various departments at WHS and support the company growth. This month, our three trainee black belts Chris Woodcock, Jake Scrivens and Alex Gumery took part in a three day training course in which they learnt about the importance of solid data collection as it is essential to make good decisions when problem solving and making improvements around a business.

As Black Belt can be quite technical at times, the three WHS candidates have some interesting projects. Jake will be looking at how labelling and barcoding can improve our logistics to our customers, Chris is looking at the hand spraying process of painting current parts and Alex is going to use Six Sigma to help reduce defects in our New Paint Plant in Site 3. Whilst their projects are ongoing , a role of a black belt practitioner is to offer support and guidance to staff across the business with their own improvement activities as well as delivering on their own projects.

Currently WHS have not only black belt training but also green and yellow belt six sigma practitioners.  WHS strive for continuous improvements as its an important part of our work ethos and six sigma helps employees around all three sites in Minworth to do that which will therefore help us with our continued growth.
