SenSura Mio is one of our ostomy care appliances. These are used by people living with a stoma. Because of colorectal or bladder cancer for example, a stoma is created by an operation, which brings the end of the intestine to an opening on the abdominal wall. Bodily wastes are then excreted and collected into the ostomy appliance which is attached to the area around the stoma.
We currently produce SenSura Mio, as well as other ostomy care appliances in Denmark. Safety is a high priority and we work to reduce any injury that may cause time lost from work. Taking it a step further, we also closely monitor all minor or ‘near-miss' accidents to prevent possible problems in the future.
This year for example, one of our employees reached over a pallet to read a label. When she stepped off the pallet, she slightly twisted her foot. Even though this was a very minor accident that the employee herself considered a slip-up, we still conducted a Root Cause Analysis. After analysing the case, we implemented a solution so that all labels can now be read without the need to step on any pallets.
