I'm looking to see if anyone has a procedure that works for controlling Engineering intervention. E.g. when an Engineer carries out hotwork/grinding in the workshop, and then returns the equipment/part back to the factory, how do you prevent swarth/fillings entering production? I'm assuming a change of coat?
You would think this is straight forward, however, we have limited facilities in the workshop for changing. There's not a dedicated changing area and there's no access to running water in the workshop, but they do have hand sanitizer.
Welcome your thoughts.
Unfortunately, Engineers tend to be the Nemesis of Sanitation Control Measures. Sometimes for valid emergency reasons, eg freezer ammonia bursts, but often not.
IMEX Engineers are often compelled to go into situations which are probably more suited to well-protected firemen. Such undertakings, I speculate, tends to instil somewhat of a disregard as to maintaining the desired pristine nature of a production environment.
There are a few older threads here which describe attempts to regulate their activities/incursions but, IIRC, with limited success.
We tried insisting on the donning of a lightweight overall at entry but urgencies/awkward locations tended to generate an immediate bypassing of such.a measure.
Many factories tend to warn the Engg section when an audit is due so as to minimise the potential for their overt visibility.
I'm interested to see whether anybody has solved this Rubik's cube ?
