Efficient and safe chemical dispensing and tracking. A high priority for PSG is to track and dispense the proper concentration of their sanitation chemicals. Many sanitation chemicals are sold in concentrated form, and diluted with water when used. Keeping the dilution of sanitation chemicals both consistent and accurate is important to both product quality and to meet federal guidelines for sanitation levels. Yau researched systems that accurately dispense diluted chemicals and track chemical output and recommended an automated dilution system that functions like a vending machine.
Annual cost to implement and savings are unknown; the primary gain would be increase worker safety and capability to track and then evaluate chemical usage
Standardized chemical guidance, plans and training can prevent accidents and spills while assisting with tracking and disposal options. The OASE intern developed an all-encompassing,chemical guidance manual detailing the handling, storage, and disposal of chemicals and chemical waste. The manual also provides a mechanism to track chemical usage, sourcing, potential waste, and recycling of chemical containers. This would also make future changes easier and potentially help identify more cost-effective alternatives.
Annual cost to implement is unknown, one-time savings is $5,000
