floor-tape-tools-AWhen looking around any warehouse or manufacturing facility there will undoubtedly be many things that you take notice of. In many cases, the last thing you are likely to notice is the floor. This, however, can actually be a major problem.

When managed properly, the floors can help to improve safety, cut down waste, and make the environment much better for everyone involved. The problem many facilities have is not really understanding how to properly mark their floors to get the best possible results.

In addition to helping to improve your facility directly, proper floor markings can be an important step in remaining compliant with OSHA. OSHA Standard 1910.22, for example, requires that companies mark pathways and alert employees to hazards. As you’ll see, floor markings can be a great way to comply with this requirement.

Every facility is going to need something a little different when it comes to floor markings, but the following ten scenarios can help to provide some ideas or examples of what may work best. Read through these options and see which ones will work in your facility so that you can begin implementing an effective floor marking program as soon as possible.

Lean vs Automation

3 marzo 2015 | Pubblicato in Sicurezza&Salute | Nessun Commento »

As production has advanced over the years, the techniques and technology we have at our fingertips to improve the speed and efficiency of the things we do have increased tenfold. On the one hand, a new and deeper understanding of lead times and how various elements of production affect each other have led to a better understanding of how we can eliminate unnecessary materials and time from the production process. On the other, technology allows us, now more than ever, to hand off the work in production to robots and machines for hands-off creation.

This two-pronged approach to higher efficiency can be roughly split into two major categories: Lean and/or Six Sigma methodology and automation. In some cases, these two ideas have butted heads over the years, but the reality is that they can actually work together quite well in tandem. In this blog post, I want to break down how the definitions of both Lean and automation in the workplace have evolved over the years, and then talk about how they coexist in a workplace, identify differences between the two, etc. Let’s start with the ideas of Lean/Six Sigma, likely familiar concepts to any of you regular readers of this blog.

Lead Time Reduction In Five Easy Steps

Excessive lead times are a huge problem for just about anyone running a production line. Misjudging lead times can be devastating to both your ability to keep up with customer demand and the faith those customers put in your ability to deliver on time. Reducing your lead times allows you to be more agile and responsive to customer demand, reduce or eliminate inventory, and trim unnecessary costs from your operations. In this blog post, we’re going to look at several steps you can take to understand your own lead times and then adapt them to consumer demand and reduce them as needed.

Jamie Flinchbaugh wrote a great article for IndustryWeek and said this great quote:

Delivering faster is a true competitive advantage. The pursuit of lead-time reduction also forces you to eliminate other wastes. If I had to pick a single metric to focus an improvement effort, I would choose lead time.

Industrial Labeling for All Different Situations

3 marzo 2015 | Pubblicato in Sicurezza&Salute | Nessun Commento »

Da: http://blog.creativesafetysupply.com/

Most facilities today use a wide range of different chemicals and other potentially dangerous products. Whether it is for cleaning, manufacturing, quality control or something else entirely, it is important to use these items as safely as possible.

When the chemicals or other products arrive on site, or are produced and stored, the primary containers must always be properly labeled according to OSHA standards. Information such as what the chemical is, how it is to be used, and how to respond to an emergency should be clearly displayed on a safety label that is securely affixed to the container.

With this in mind, most facilities have an industrial label printer (similar to this) on site so they can create the high quality labels that they need for these situations. There are many instances, however, when the chemicals are moved to other areas during use. When this is the case, the regulations regarding the proper labeling also change.

In addition, there are also many other situations where a label can be used to help improve the safety or efficiency of a specific process. Understanding how and when industrial labeling should be used is very important for all facilities.

Safety Walk – Gemba Style

Safety-Gemba-WalkOne of the most important goals of any facility should be to keep the employees and the company as safe as possible. In most cases, all the basic safety requirements will already be in place, including things like fire suppression systems, evacuation routes, safety signs and more.

When a facility is in compliance with all the main regulatory requirements related to safety, they may think that they can just go into ‘maintenance mode’. When in this mode, the company will inspect equipment and repair or replace safety items as they get old, but they don’t really do much to encourage continuous safety improvements.
