Brady claims it has solved the problem of food safety requirements preventing industry from using lean and safety signage in production units, resulting in a higher than average number of accidents.

The firm said its Toughwash signage can help food and beverage manufacturers because it is washdown-resistant, metal-detectable and can be used as communication visuals to reinforce compliance with food safety protocols on the workfloor. 

Visual cues in the signage take the guess work out of production by reminding frontline workers about proper procedures at the point of operation.

Due to the washdown environment, food processors minimise signage on the production floor to ensure food safety. This means protocols and procedures are put in binders on office shelves away from the processing floor, where employees seldom read or see them.

Brady said safety challenges are a constant presence, such as slippery floors, chemical exposure, pinch points, washdown or industrial machinery maintenance.

The pressure to improve yield continues to intensify with escalating costs of food commodities, energy and labour and product recalls and the re-work resulting from mix-ups on the processing floor can cost millions, it added.
