Continuous Improvement: One Light Bulb at a Time

Every day, employees across our organization display excellence in their work. From improving products, services or processes, our employees are always delivering on their jobs with an eye to continuous improvement. Whether incremental improvements over time, or breakthrough advances all at once, there is no wrong way to approach process improvement.

A recent initiative undertaken by Municipal Facilities Maintenance & Operations (MFMO), a division of Corporate & Customer Services, in collaboration with Halifax Transit and Energy & Environment, shows how something as simple as replacing lighting can improve the work environment for our teams and provide cost savings over time. The MFMO team is continuing to work through a list of projects aimed at improving how and where we work.

Check out a before and after of Halifax Transit’s Ragged Lake Depot.

Note the mix of 32-watt F32T8 fluorescents.

An after photo of the same bay re-lamped with our 10-watt 5000K Philips InstantFITs.
A dramatic improvement!
