I sampled tablets (in batches) during and after production using suitable test apparatus to ensure that they meet production standards of weight, disintegration time, friability, hardness and thickness.
Chemical Laboratory Duties:
- I sampled various batches of raw materials used in production of tablets. This was achieved by carrying out physical and chemical tests on the raw materials in a laboratory using procedures drawn from the British Pharmacopeia to ensure that the right sort of raw materials were used for production of tablets.
Engineering Workshop Duties:
- I participated actively during the annual planned preventive maintenance (PPM) schedule carried out on various machines used in the industry for production. Under supervision, I overhauled machines, steam-cleaned various parts, and lubricated the moveable parts before coupling. This maintenance procedure was carried out annually, in order to keep the machines in good working condition.
