Audit day! I printed out all the instructions yesterday, and trampled them a bit today to make them look used! I will only move them closer to the workplace! The auditor will have nothing to have any objections … I can be calm!

- Information on how to perform the important step (key points)

- Health and safety aspects
- Pictures showing key points tools, components and parts
