Abstract

The article presents the results of research related to the assessment of the impact of the use of selected lean tools on the level of safety in foundries. The factor analysed is the registration of potentially dangerous accidents and events in the foundry. The obtained results for a specific research sample from the foundry industry were referred to the obtained results for the metal processing industry. The obtained results indicate a positive effect of using selected lean tools on the level of security. The number of registered accidents as well as potentially dangerous events has significantly decreased as a function of time.
