Working Group | The 7 rules for effective Work Instructions

Price FREE Register

Event description

This event will focus on the 7 rules for effective Work Instructions.

Providing employees with clear work instructions is integral to operational success.

Work instructions refer to documented guidelines that clarify how to perform assignments. They provide precise descriptions of task-related steps to reduce potential setbacks, damages, and inconveniences. Work instructions are also known as work guides, job aids, or user manuals.
The most important part of writing good work instructions? Leave nothing open to misinterpretation! Vague work instructions confuse employees, disrupt productivity, and often result in costly errors.

This working group will introduce the seven rules for effective work instructions:

  • Clarity
  • Brevity
  • Accessibility
  • Consistency
  • Accuracy
  • Visual appeal
  • Stakeholder Involvement

We will review examples of work instructions from across our network and discuss the elements that work and those that can be improved.
We invite you to share your own Work Instructions from your workplace and critique them across the 7 rules.
