My suggestion:

1. Tank basement was dirty
- Correction: Clean it immediately
- Corrective action: Establish a cleaning schedule, regular checking / audit / inspection etc.

2. Screw nut bolt were found in production area
- Correction: Remove it immediately from the area
- Corrective action: Establish a procedure, regular checking / audit / inspection, Warning (to the specific person if you know) etc

3. Uncover drain line was found
- Correction: Cover or seal it permanently
- Corrective action: Regular checking etc. (If permanently seal, then should be no corrective action)

4. Product line was found leaked.
- Correction: The repair immediately
- Corrective action: Establish the maintenance schedule, regular checking / audit / inspection etc.

5. Staff change room was found dirty and few lockers were found broken.
- Correction: Clean up immediately
- Corrective action: Establish cleaning schedule, awareness training, regular checking / audit / inspection, Warning (to the specific person if you know) etc

It is for you to decide what actions to take. All nonconformities need not have to have a corrective action. Sometimes corrections, perhaps along with containment actions will suffice. Try to find out which are the probable cause/s that can affect the problem and mitigate the effect by eliminating/reducing the impacts of the cause/s. "Root causes" are generally misleading many times as these are really perceived root causes until and unless they are tested for their effects, as well as determining the impact of other factors, which can influence the results. And so, many problems reoccur despite actions taken after finding root causes. Then we either find another root cause or term the action taken ineffective. And also the "root cause" identification is really dependant on the knowledge of the persons involved and "on the depth one goes beneath the ground to find the root".

You will probably need documentation/pics/proof that the above changes were indeed implemented. (Maintenance reports, Training records, etc..)

Dear YongYM,
Your corective actions arefine suggestions.

dear qasimabbasi,
Make sure you start with a cause investigation for each NC. A good corrective action is related to the cause of the NC. E.g. if the nut came from a contractor/external engineer, corrective action is changing (or implementing) the contractor hygiene rules or traning. If the nut came from a machine, you need to improve or implement the machine inspections.


Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor
