METALFER OFFERS: INNOVATIVE PROBLEM SOLUTIONS BY OUR EMPLOYEES
The initiative that encourages employees to creatively solve problems continues this year in the same form, and last year’s proposals were successfully and fully implemented.
With the desire to involve all members of Metalfer in the infrastructural issues of the company, we have introduced the possibility that, as participants and the best experts in the production process, they can make suggestions about qualitative changes that would improve their or collective work. This practice proved to be the opening of a constructive dialogue about the more efficient functioning of the company, and the diversity of approaches and opinions is an asset that we at Metalfer encourage, maintain and respect. Last year’s proposals were functional in a real production environment, and accordingly colleagues were adequately rewarded.
BRONZE AND GREEN SUGGESTION
– The bronze proposal of Ljubiša Karalić and Ilija Dakić concerns the EBT automatic door. This proposal made it easier for colleagues to work on the EAF furnace, as well as less involvement of refractory maintenance, which until now had to change the door every day;
– Dragan Kličarić’s green proposal concerns the sealing elements on the trajbers: the proposal to reconstruct the seating of the trajber shafts, in order to stop the loss of lubricating oil due to frequent leaks, eliminated the problem that even the representatives of the companies “Danieli” and “Sider” had previously failed to solve with their modifications they decided. The implementation of the Green Proposal contributed to environmental protection, as well as saving oil. During 2022 year, as well as at the beginning of 2023, there was no leakage of the lubricant on the mentioned tires.
We congratulate our colleagues on last year’s success and remind you that the Metalfer Proposes 2.0 action is ongoing, and that you can submit your proposals to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by inserting proposals into the designated boxes at the porter’s office near the Administration Building and the Smelter. Good luck!
