Do you have broken pallet jacks or carts sitting around your department? Maybe it’s not damaged equipment, perhaps it’s additional equipment that no one want’s to claim – You know, it’s that step ladder sitting in the corner, but no one knows what to do with it.
If that sound like your operation, this tip is for you. Create a “Red Zone” and “Green Zone.”
Broken equipment, furniture, etc.: is dropped off in the “Red Zone.” Every other week, you will dispose of these items.
Tables, chairs, filing cabinets, etc.: is dropped off in the “Green Zone.” You will distribute these items where needed or store appropriately.
