EFFECT OF FACTORY LAYOUT ON ORGANIZATIONAL SAFETY PROGRAMMES

Abstract Factory layout of any industry must be effective in flow of workers and material. This is necessary for a smooth manufacturing process. Factory layout is effective if the output from the layout is realized at a minimum possible cost with little or no industrial accident. In this study, an assessment was carried out on …
