What is a Production Startup Checklist?
The process demands specific verifications, security tasks, quality control, and quick inspections in order to approve the beginning of a process. The goal is to ensure that, while starting production, the workplace environment is clean, has everything that will be needed at the right place, and does not include any type of extra materials that may endanger production or workers. These safety measures must be executed by every operator before the production starts
How is a Production Startup Checklist implemented?
Requirements are the requested actions that must be executed according to the safety, stocks and sources available to execute the task. The process usually includes a workflow to follow specific verifications across the workplace and equipment that must be verified by the worker before starting its work.
Checklists are typically created in paper sheets. Workers register the execution of each task such as safety equipment verifications, if the right tools can be found near the workplace, or even if the previous worker has validated his tasks.
Production startup requirements are usually applied in different types of industries. They can be supported by checklists in which the specific requirments are explained, in order to guide the worker through the process execution.
