The sweeps at one client facility of about 200 employees produced over 2 dumpsters of outdated ‘junk’ documents of all kinds. A number of hazardous chemicals were identified in storage rooms which had long ago been ‘forgotten’ about. In the lab outdated reagents were identified. On the surface the facility was neat, organized and clean. The detailed sweeps revealed the soft underbelly of the reality.
If you decide sweeps are not necessary in your implementation, be prepared for surprises.
Where to Start - Documentation
Take a corner of the room and begin a sweep.
