ST&L Complete Major Machinery Safety Audit Project for an International Soft Drinks Company

Posted 29 Nov 2013

In 2013, ST&L Limited embarked on a major machinery safety audit project for an internationally-recognised brand of soft drinks. The project involved auditing of bottling and canning line machinery across the UK, France, Belgium and The Netherlands on 17 production facilities. The auditing process was against corporate machinery safety standards but included reference to Harmonised European Safety Standards and Directives. Over 800 individual machines and machine assemblies have been audited. The report format was created specifically for this client by ST&L using Microsoft Excel and includes pie charts, bar graphs and a compliance level scoring system to give an overall summary of compliance status and snag lists. Additional data analysis has also been provided by ST&L to indicate top ten non-compliances across each individual site as well as across the whole 17 sites.
