I am encountering yet another issue and was hoping for some insight.
Our warehouse which stores raw material and finished goods is having an issue of aisles being cluttered with plastic regrind, finished goods, and sometimes raw material. We did get a minor on our audit this past April in regards to our aisle being cluttered, and how it causes issues with picking parts and cleanliness.
The reason we need to store items in our aisles is because we are not able to fully utilize rack space that remains vacant due to a leaky roof that water will leak onto product, so we call our aisles "temporary" storage.
In a recent meeting, I bought up the issue again and how there were many vacancies in our storage racks. I was told "we all know the roof leaks and that's why we cant store items on racks" and then directed me to find another solution.
Root cause analysis has been conducted for this issue, yet upper management wants a different solution to work instead of fixing a roof (which costs $$$) and ridding the issue entirely (at least for the next 20-30 years).
Can these actions be reported to anyone at SQF anonymously? There are some other things that the auditor did not catch that I wish I could have been more upfront about, like having vegetation killer on our chemical list, when it's not because we have winter weather removes the weeds for us. It is making it difficult for me to operate on such unethical standards.
