problems. Making problems visible is the first step of improvement.

Japanese Term English Translation Equivalent 'S' term

Seiri Organization Sort

Seiton Tidiness Systematize

Seiso Cleaning Sweep

Seiketsu Standardization Standardize

Shitsuke Discipline Self - Discipline

Pillar 2 Jishu hozen (Autonomous maintenance):

This pillar is geared towards developing operators to be able to take care of small
maintenance tasks, thus freeing up the skilled maintenance people to spend time on
more value added activity and technical repairs. The operators are responsible for
upkeep of their equipment to prevent it from deteriorating.

Pillar 3- Kaizen
"Kai" means change, and "Zen" means good ( for the better ). Basically kaizen is for
small improvements, but carried out on a continual basis and involve all people in the
organization. Kaizen is opposite to big spectacular innovations. Kaizen requires no or
little investment. The principle behind is that "a very large number of small
improvements are move effective in an organizational environment than a few
improvements of large value. This pillar is aimed at reducing losses in the workplace
that affect our efficiencies. By using a detailed and thorough procedure we eliminate
losses in a systematic method using various Kaizen tools. These activities are not limited
to production areas and can be implemented in administrative areas as well.

Pillar 4- Plant maintenance:

It is aimed to have trouble free machines and equipments producing defect free products
for total customer satisfaction. This breaks maintenance down into 4 "families" or
groups which were defined earlier.

Pillar-5 Quality maintenance:

It is aimed towards customer delight through highest quality through defect free
manufacturing. Focus is on eliminating non-conformances in a systematic manner, much
like Focused Improvement. We gain understanding of what parts of the equipment affect
product quality and begin to eliminate current quality concerns, and then move to
potential quality concerns. Transition is from reactive to proactive (Quality Control to
Quality Assurance).

Pillar -6 Training

It is aimed to have multi-skilled revitalized employees whose morale is high and who
has eager to come to work and perform all required functions effectively and
independently. Education is given to operators to upgrade their skill. It is not sufficient
know only "Know-How" by they should also learn "Know-why". By experience they
gain, "Know-How" to overcome a problem what to be done. This they do without
knowing the root cause of the problem and why they are doing so. Hence it become
necessary to train them on knowing "Know-why". The employees should be trained to
achieve the four phases of skill. The goal is to create a factory full of experts.

Pillar 7 Offices TPM:

Office TPM should be started after activating four other pillars of TPM (JH, KK, QM,
and PM). Office TPM must be followed to improve productivity, efficiency in the
administrative functions and identify and eliminate losses. This includes analyzing
processes and procedures towards increased office automation. Office TPM addresses
twelve major losses. They are

Pillar-8 Safety, Health, Environment:

Target:

1. Zero accident,
2. Zero health damage
3. Zero fires.

In this area focus is on to create a safe workplace and a surrounding area that is not
damaged by our process or procedures. This pillar will play an active role in each of the
other pillars on a regular basis.

A committee is constituted for this pillar which comprises representative of officers as


well as workers. The committee is headed by senior vice President (Technical). Utmost
importance to Safety is given in the plant. Manager (Safety) is looking after functions
related to safety. To create awareness among employees various competitions like safety
slogans, Quiz, Drama, Posters, etc. related to safety can be organized at regular
intervals.

Introduction with the concept of EMPLOYEES


WELFARE
Rapid industrialization and urbanization have made employees dependent on capitalists.
Inflation has made their lot poor and they find it difficult to maintain their standard of
life. In such situation employee welfare facilities enable workers to live a richer and
more satisfactory.

Employee welfare defines as efforts to make life worth living for workmen. These
efforts have their origin either in some statute formed by the state or in some local
custom or in collective agreement or in the employers own initiative.

To give expression to philanthropic and paternalistic feelings.


To win over employees loyalty and increase their morale.
To combat trade unionism and socialist ideas.
To build up stable labor force, to reduce labor turnover and absenteeism.
To develop efficiency and productivity among workers.
To save oneself from heavy taxes on surplus profits.
To earn goodwill and enhance public image.
To reduce the threat of further government intervention.
To make recruitment more effective (because these benefits add to job appeal).

Philosophy and Perceptive of Labor Welfare Activities

In an industrial society labor welfare activities, not only effects on the far-reaching work
force but it also effects on various aspects of human resources. All such activities which
are not only secure existential necessities but also ensures improved spiritual and
emotional quotient, including in labor welfare. The short and long term vision to build a
humane society is centered in labor welfare activities.

The theories of Labor welfare activities firmly believe in that, behind any machine, the
man is only responsible for achieving the organization's mission. With complete
satisfaction and be committed on any cause, a person may act in its best. Various
welfare facilities are provided by the organization keep not only employees motivated
and committed even their family members also.
Term "welfare" expresses many ideas, meanings, and to additional means, such as well
status, health, happiness, prosperity and development of human resource etc. The
welfare of both social and economic aspects is also included. The social concept of
welfare implies the welfare of a man, his family and his community. These three aspects
inter-relate, and work together. Within economic aspects of welfare, is involved
promotion of economic growth by increasing production and productivity.

The concept of welfare is also concerned with time and space. The changes have similar
effects on the welfare system. As welfare progressive and dynamic and keep pace with
the changing times as a result, the material of welfare remains potentially volatile. The
features of welfare may also be varying depending on the nation in all fields. Therefore,
its meaning and components can be differ in different countries & different places.

Philosophy of Labor welfare activities:

The philosophy of labor welfare activities are based on the success of industrial
development and the theory of harmony depends on the cooperation and relationship
between labor and management (employer). Worker has a fund of knowledge and
experience to perform his job. If his ability and skill to be properly utilized with the right
direction, the worker can be a working good contributor in the prosperity of the
organization. And it can be achieve by work satisfaction of the worker.

The labor welfare activities in a form of health care centres to facilitate provided
through the idea of a good medical care center to ensure job satisfaction and
productivity improvements will help more. His staffs to be healthy are a basic need of an
organization.
It is part of the facilities provided by the employer, that would associated with health
care of workers and it would ensure their minimum health hazardous. The concerning
law prescribes the minimum standard, but a progressive employer to expand its activities
must protect the health of workers and their dependents. In return, their cooperation will
be wholehearted, work to maximum efficiency and attitude will be fair and friendly
towards them.

Labor welfare activities perceptive:

The attention on Labor welfare activities has led to a rising interest by the stakeholders
who have now started to identify the problems of labor welfare and to formulate their
position. The main stakeholders are the investor of enterprises, employees, trade
associations or unions, and government etc. Therefore, they are gradually increasing
information about the potential of labor welfare activities and even putting vision on
labor welfare activities in future prospects.

From this perspective, some basic questions as follows:

organization?

level?

Suggestions

Although GCPL, Malanpur is always committed towards their employees and their
families but than also I would like to give some suggestions.

It is must and necessary their should be proper coordination and understanding


among executives and non- executives groups.

It is also necessary that the non-executives groups must be motivated time to


time by providing them some incentives, benefits or doing some extra works for
them.

Quality of food must be improved to satisfy the employees.


The feelings of satisfaction can be made better by making more employees
friendly especially for non-executives population.

Educational assistance is not up to the mark there is need to improvement.

Limitations of this study


Difficulty in fill up of questionnaires.

Some responses are not filled up with sincerity.

No enough time got to learn.
