NOTEDOME’s programme of continuous improvement at their Coventry manufacturing facility has reached a further milestone as the company develops a better process-flow from ‘goods-in’ to ‘product-despatch’.
Marc Smith Operations Manager, who joined NOTEDOME in 2021 with innovative production experience commented ….
“This re-modelling programme improves staff-safety by incorporating the revised COMAH requirements and further consolidates the improved control of stock rotation.
Further benefit is gained by the releasing of old machinery storage areas which has improved the production facilities capability.”
These improvements involved a review of the production processes and included the implementation of revised guidelines from the local fire/rescue authorities and COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) part of the HSE (UK Health & Safety Executive).
Notedome undertook a site clearance of well-used but now obsolete equipment, reorganised the raw materials and the finished-goods storage areas.
Refurbishment was completed with replacement of busy-traffic surfaces, and the setting-up of new floor areas with demarcated work zones.
The introduction of the new and modern racking systems provides easy-access to both raw materials and finished products within their allocated storage spaces. This has allowed hazardous products to be moved away from high-traffic areas enhancing the safety of the team, and their effectiveness throughout the manufacturing process.
