You can see the month when the factoryreceived the highest inspection score. That’s probably because we held a safety training sessionat the beginning of that month, before the inspection was done. Unfortunately, our scores havebeen declining since then, which indicates that our staff needs to be reminded of the safetyguidelines on a regular basis. So for this month, let’s make sure that everybody reviews thesafety manual before the inspection takes place. Marcela has prepared copies for everyone.Please pick up some for your team members.
