The purpose of this procedure is to control the introduction of foreign material into critical plant systems and components in order to minimize the potential for damage to equipment, increase equipment reliability, and reduce equipment downtime.
Following Foreign Material Exclusion (FME) practices helps to eliminate costly damage and potential injuries. Keeping objects out of areas where they should not be left, is a common practice in most high-end technically advanced manufacturing plants, airport facilities, aircraft operations and the medical industry just to name a few.

WASHINGTON (Jan. 4, 2019) — The NTSB announced Friday that the kickoff event for the agency’s 2019 – 2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements, previously slated for Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019, is postponed and rescheduled for Feb. 4, 2019, 10 a.m. (EST).
The postponement is necessary due to the lapse in government funding. The rescheduled event is set to be held in the same venue, the Holeman Lounge of the National Press Club.
The event will start with opening remarks from NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt who will then announce the Most Wanted List. The chairman will join NTSB Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg, and Board Members Jennifer Homendy and Earl Weener for a moderated panel discussion about the items on the Most Wanted List and related safety recommendations. A question and answer session will follow the panel discussion.NTSB’s 2019 – 2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements Click To Tweet
