After the Chef noticed a horrid burning smell coming from his oven, he decided to investigate and found this pair of pliers which had been left behind after an Engineer came out to fix it around 3wks ago. This incident could have been so much worse, as you can see from the image. This emphasises the importance of having Visual Tool Control in place.
The risk of leaving a tool behind after a maintenance job or other work can be significantly reduced by ensuring all tools are accounted for at the completion of the task. To achieve this, tools must be checked before and after each job. Tool control solutions make it easy for tool checks to be carried out quickly and accurately.
