Introduction to Good Manufacturing Practices

This lesson will explain what GMP is, who must practice GMP, and why it is essential to do so at the workplace.

Good Manufacturing Practices for the Manufacturing Industry Course - Lesson Excerpt

Welcome! Introduction to Good Manufacturing Practices

Some examples of companies in the manufacturing industry are those that produce food or beverages, tobacco, apparel, plastics and rubbers, metal, machinery, computers, and electronics.

Taking this course is an important part of working in this industry, especially if you are part of the production line.

GMP is important because it ensures the quality of our products and your safety as well as our customers.

This lesson will cover: what is GMP **who **must practice GMP **why **must GMP be followed

Who must practice GMP? Swipe to the left to find out

You You are part of this company, and together, our role is to make sure our products are safe for use. You must not simply follow GMP as rules but apply it as a way of life. It will keep you safe at work and also keep our customers safe.

**Everyone **in the Company We encourage everyone in the company to follow GMP. Whenever you notice someone neglecting their duties at work, remind them that GMP may save their lives and many of our customers.

Which of the following is not true about GMP? Select only the best answer

Failing to practice GMP in the workplace can cause product contamination (which can lead to public health issues).

One such example is an outbreak of E. coli infections. E.coli is a bacteria that normally live in our intestines. However, some strains can cause infections which may result in kidney failure, especially among children aged five and below.

Imagine depriving a child of their future because of "simple" lapses during production.

Public safety issues may also be caused by negligence of GMP in the workplace. In recent years, many car manufacturers have recalled their automobiles because of safety issues such as faulty ignition switches that control car engines and airbags.

These minor mistakes in production may end up being linked to at least 97 deaths.

The Principles of Good Manufacturing Practices

Good manufacturing practices have ten principles which can guide you in performing your duties. In this lesson, we'll discuss six of the ten principles of good manufacturing processes.

Good Manufacturing Practices for the Manufacturing Industry Course - Lesson Excerpt

Welcome back! Good Manufacturing Practices for the Manufacturing Industry

In the previous lesson, we discussed what GMP is, who should be practising GMP, and why GMP should be continuously observed at the workplace.

In this lesson, we'll talk about the Principles of Good Manufacturing Practices.

Particularly, six of the ten principles to help you understand them in more detail.

Facilities and Equipment The fifth and sixth principles of GMP are related to company facilities and equipment. 5. Designing Facilities and Equipment We design our facilities and equipment with your safety and comfort in mind. We believe that proper positioning or segregation of facilities and equipment will lessen possible errors during production and prevent contamination of our materials. The proper layout of our production line also promotes your productivity and help you do your job more accurately. 6. Maintenance of Facilities and Equipment Our facilities and equipment need to be maintained so that they can be used without issues. They must be cleaned and serviced regularly so the products we manufacture consistently meet quality standards. It is part of your responsibility to make a record of any issues and to validate these issues to make sure that our equipment or machinery is working properly. If you ever notice that there are issues with any of the facilities we have or the equipment you use, notify other people in your department so that actions may be taken. Your report on such issues may help us avoid production errors and possible product recalls.

Other Principles of Good Manufacturing Practices

The last four principles of GMP will be discussed in this lesson.

Good Manufacturing Practices for the Manufacturing Industry Course - Lesson Excerpt

Welcome back! Other Principles of Good Manufacturing Practices

In the previous lesson, we discussed the first six principles of good manufacturing practices.

In this lesson, the last four of the ten principles to help you understand them in more detail.

Your role in the company is essential. Your responsibilities are well-defined, and we believe that you are fully prepared to handle these responsibilities. Your background and expertise are greatly considered with job competency.

Though we do know that you are equipped with the skills necessary to perform your duties, you must continuously undergo skills training related to your role. These training sessions will help you "stay in shape," so you'll continuously do your duties with minimal to no errors.

With the right skills and proper training, we can all be sure that our products meet quality standards.

Controlling Quality The ninth principle of GMP is controlling product quality.

Our products must consistently meet quality standards. This makes us a reliable brand.

Quality checks are usually done towards the end of the production process for final checks before distribution or customer consumption to ensure that we meet standards.

However, we must integrate quality into our products. Therefore, inspections should be done during the process itself, not just towards the end.

We must ensure the quality of the raw materials and equipment we use, and each phase of the production process must strictly follow our written procedures.

Remember to adhere to our procedures, do your job well, and maintain personal hygiene. You are an essential part of the company, and we all have roles to play.
