The environment heath and safety system is recommend to manage chemicals and other materials are considered under hazardous materials. Identified risk level on above acceptable level to facilitate needs to manage separately. The chemical & other materials which are needs to use frequently in the manufacturing concern requirements should be managed as critical materials. To specific tasks that managed and its procedures are maintained, deployed in the system.
The administration team is maintained and allocates space in the organization to easier for monitoring, verification of the materials for safety point of views and handling and storage accordingly. The management should also need to special instruction for particular materials. Those are considered as hazardous are managed separate facility as well as try to use substitute materials which having low rating risks.
Internal materials moving and handling, storage & managing each materials is the part of accommodation. When the materials should be needed to proper storage and managing to enhancement of space requirements, storage requirements and movement concern organize materials. The management is responsible for the managing & organizes and arrangement of all facilities shall be in such way to manage minimum movement. Movement of human resources, materials & resources used in manufacturing & supporting activities. The purpose of the managing internal transportation system to ensure that optimum turn around time. Internal transportation system should be needs to minimize by some extra effort by management to deployment. Allocation of storage units, ways that used transport should have managed as to not disturb any other processes or tasks. Same processes should be manage as separate locations that transportation not disturb in any case.
Other accommodation requirements
To improvement or maintaining working environment in workplaces needs some basic requirements. That hurt the system & disturb employee working around the machinery, equipment & the machine having big noise or vibrating. The biggest requirements with generators, machinery that considered in heavy duties are needs to manage and allocate special treatment. Separate room for avoid disturbance to others, like machine vibration, all working platforms should vibrate free and the equipment, machine are sensitive that should be kept without any undesirable impact due to vibration like balances and other measurement instruments.
The generator types equipment should be well enclosed by recommended materials to avoid any extra noise out side of room. Measurement or any sensitive equipment, instrument and devices should be managing separately in the room with better working environment. To manage and judge proper allocation to those equipment.
