Focus on GxPs Samples

Lesson 1 – Focus is Key In Focus is Key, we see a distracted employee connecting a line to the wrong vessel inlet connection.  The result: a million dollar loss of product all because he didn’t focus on the job at hand.  During another transfer we see the employee rewarded by completing the job successfully.

Lesson 2 – Failure to Communicate In A Failure to Communicate, a shift change creates confusion and miscommunication when a supervisor forgets to focus on what he needs to know to schedule production runs in order to meet a filling schedule. This video reminds people to communicate during shift changes.

Lesson 3 – Check and Double Check In Check and Double Check, two employees get distracted as they're taking a pH reading. They sign off on a batch production record that shows the pH is out of specification. The solution: focus on the job at hand and sum up the job to ensure that it was completed the way it was intended.

Lesson 4 – Correct It or Report It In Correct It or Report It, a headband snaps off a face shield and ends up contaminating a batch of product. A number of employees spot the problem but don't do anything about it. No one wants to be the bearer of bad news and slow down production. Besides, "the next person will handle it." The result? A loss of six runs of product.

Lesson 5 – Something’s Gotta Give In Something’s Gotta Give, we see Rasheed, a laboratory technician, persuade John, another lab tech, to abandon his SOPs training and shortcut a laboratory procedure.  The result is a failed assay and a loss of time in product disposition.

Lesson 6 – Control Room? This presentation shows us an out-of-control control room with people coming and going, asking for information, informing Matthew, the operator, of tests and work going on in his area.  When an alarm goes off, Matthew thinks he has it covered — but he doesn’t and a batch is lost.  Later, we see the scene replayed — this time with Matthew focusing on his job and doing things correctly.
