To do that we need to gather up important information that each employee should know at all times, including the US regulation on handling and storing the explosive powers and form an employee handbook.

We can have this book on the production floor, available to take home and available to read on one in the break room computers.
With the above changes into place I would like to make one more suggestion, as the Manager of the Acme Fireworks with all the new contracts and the new employees I would like to recommend that we move to a small warehouse located down by the docks in the marina area that has not been in use
