"We Don't Want To Draw Attention To It"
Anyone else get this as an answer from management when trying to be proactive?
I made a simple sign stating the basic rules for storage of our liquid flavoring, some of which have >10 ppm sulfites. The sign stated how to store all containers, and then specific instructions to store the >10 ppm flavors on the bottom shelf.
I was told to not hang any storage instructions, as this will make the auditor ask questions, and we don't want to give him any ammunition.
In managements defense, only the assistant general manager puts flavors in the storage room, and keeps the room tidy daily. But on the line, we have multiple minimum wage employees using flavors and replacing flavors in a small cabinet next to their work table. Although the assistant general manager looks at these cabinets every day too, there will be gaps when he does not have time to organize everything.
I guess what I want to know is, does anybody else have to avoid doing things proactively, as to not raise the auditors awareness of possible issues?
