The Need for Best Practice Labels on Today’s
In today’s manufacturing facilities, labels on equipment and signage within the workplace are a key component in communicating about hazards and mitigating risk. Yet, companies often struggle with keeping labels and signs up-to-date and consistent. Without effective warnings in place – ones that comply with OSHA/ANSI/ISO and effectively reinforce safe behavior – the lives of those who use your equipment could be at risk.
Safety Labels Quality and Durability
Jarvis Products Corporation, a meat processing machinery manufacturer, has a lot of dangerous tools in their facility that need to function properly, because just like any other industry, if they do not function properly, injuries start to arise. With that being said, a proper label is needed for each tool to prevent these injuries. Every tool that Jarvis uses daily is cleaned at night with a caustic solution. But, corrosion comes with these cleaning chemicals which is a major issue in terms of ensuring label durability and visibility. Jarvis chose Clarion Safety because of the material types offered, in order to keep the ink from deteriorating from the labels and also because of Clarion Safety's knowledge of the ANSI and ISO standards.
