BASF's South Carolina plant, based in Seneca, signed up with Vetter to get more safety and continuous improvement ideas. According to Andrew Tunstall, BASF's Human Resources manager and the overseer of the system, there are two areas that the company is targeting: 'We want to see suggestions especially for safety and productivity improvements. In manufacturing, you always need to stay focused to cost control and employee safety concerns'.
The suggestion system was set up for BASF Seneca's 450 staff quickly and painlessly, with Andy Tunstall commenting: '...set-up was relatively simple... the Vetter system is flexible enough to make it easy to use and mold to my specific needs. Vetter was able to present options that allowed decision making easy.'
Employees have responded well to the suggestion system, with participation high and safety levels rising.
