Have you taken the time to take a helicopter view of your business?
Many businesses’ layout is a result of many years of small improvements either by the employees themselves, new tooling in the market, management, customer adaptations or internal revitalization/improvement projects.
If we go back some decades in time, one employee handled the whole repair himself/ herself. Dismantling, machining, rewinding, checking connect ions, testing, painting and packing the motor for shipment. Requirements for the workspace were also not as strict, and unhealthy operations were completed on the workbench with limited protective equipment and tooling.
Legislative and work act regulations have triggered major changes in how we work and where. Today, painting is done in a separate ventilated room, grinding in a safe area with noise attenuation and testing is done in a separate secured area with appropriate safety markings.
