Increase Food & People Safety

27 April 2015

Brady ToughwashTM signage creates new opportunities to increase both food and employee safety.

Food safety requirements prevented food & beverage industries from using lean & safety signage in their production units, resulting in a higher than average number of accidents.

As a result of the washdown environment, food processors minimise signage on the production floor to ensure food safety. Because of this, food safety protocols and procedures reside in binders on office shelves far away from the processing floor, where employees seldom read or see them. Brady’s ToughWash  washdown-resistant, metal-detectable signage, can be used  as lean communication visuals to reinforce compliance with food safety protocols on the work floor.

Workplace safety
In the food processing industry, safety hazards are around every corner. Whether its slippery floors, chemical exposure, pinch points, washdown or industrial machinery maintenance, safety challenges are a constant presence. Workplace safety visuals are essential to reduce the injury risk to front-line workers. The new Toughwash signage enables food processors to identify hazards on the work floor without compromising the general public’s food safety.

Continuous improvement
The pressure to improve yield continues to intensify with the escalating costs of food commodities, energy and labour. In addition, product recalls and the re-work resulting from mix-ups on the processing floor can cost millions. Visual cues in Toughwash signage take the guess work out of production by reminding frontline workers about proper procedures at the point of operation. Toughwash can be used to create workplace visuals that lead to consistent and more efficient workflows.
