Ok so im going to let myself down a bag full and ask a very green question.
We have installed a new extrusion line which consists of various components to perform various tasks on the product. Can someone tell me as we are trying for our first BRC creditation how will I cover this under maintenance. Remember I am totally new to this so imagine your speaking to a child..... heres what I thought so far. Im aware when any work is done on the machine a sign off sheet has to filled saying it has been inspected for foreign bodies,tools etc. I was going to set up a weekly checklist for operators to check items such as oil, water levels, lubricant etc. etc. Regarding the machine any big faults that occur and require the manufacturer to fix will be handled by him, e.g software problems,drives etc. anything else that can be fixed by our men will be done in house saying broken fan belts etc
Is it sufficient to cover this weekly with a checklist and highlight on it any problems the operator spots. These spotted problems can be fixed at the weekend or night when the machine is not running. Also for forklifts is a daily check of items enough.
If someone could break it down for me into the various forms I would need to create. that would be a great help. Again apologies for the silly question
